Pathogens may evade immune response with metal-free enzyme required for DNA replication

23-Oct-2018

Some bacterial pathogens, including those that cause strep throat and pneumonia, are able to create the components necessary to replicate their DNA without the usually required metal ions. This process may allow infectious bacteria to replicate even when the host's immune system sequesters iron ...

Machine-learning driven findings uncover new cellular players in tumor microenvironment

Involvement of adipocytes in nivolumab response in ipilimumab resistant melanoma patients

18-Oct-2018

New findings presented by CytoReason reveals possible new cellular players in the tumor microenvironment that could impact the treatment process for the most in-need patients - those who have already failed to respond to ipilimumab (anti-CTLA4) immunotherapy. Once validated, the findings could ...

15 emerging technologies that could reduce global catastrophic biological risks

11-Oct-2018

Strategic investment in 15 promising technologies could help make the world better prepared and equipped to prevent future infectious disease outbreaks from becoming catastrophic events. This subset of emerging technologies and their potential application are the focus of a new report, ...

Principles of limb regeneration in salamanders show link to mammals

01-Oct-2018

Scientists have long argued over which cells enable salamanders to grow back lost limbs. By tracking lineages and characterising individual cells, researchers could now show that connective tissue cells develop stem-cell-like properties and underlie the regeneration of legs. Among all four-legged ...

Creating a family tree for each body cell in real time

Evolving genetic barcodes show origin of cells in vivo

13-Aug-2018

All humans begin life as a single cell that divides repeatedly to form two, then four, then eight cells, all the way up to the ~26 billion cells that make up a newborn. Tracing how and when those 26 billion cells arise from one zygote is the grand challenge of developmental biology, a field that ...

Why malaria parasites are faster than human immune cells

25-Jul-2018

Malaria parasites of the genus Plasmodium move ten times faster through the skin than immune cells, whose job it is to capture such pathogens. Heidelberg scientists have now found a reason why the parasite is faster than its counterpart. They did this by studying actin, a protein that is ...

Proteins that self-assemble into supramolecular complexes

23-Jul-2018

A collaborative research team based in Japan has designed new proteins that can self-assemble into the complex structures underlying biological organisms, laying the groundwork for leading-edge applications in biotechnology. The researchers created and developed the proteins with a specific ...

Biological signalling processes in intelligent materials

Innovative biohybrid systems with information processing functionality

20-Jul-2018

Scientists from the University of Freiburg have developed materials systems that are composed of biological components and polymer materials and are capable of perceiving and processing information. These biohybrid systems were engineered to perform certain functions, such as the counting signal ...

An ATM that dispenses antioxidants

Dual role of protein that watches for cellular threats and repairs damage

12-Jul-2018

One reason we're supposed to eat a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables is because they contain nutritious compounds called antioxidants. These molecules counteract the damage to our bodies from harmful products of normal cells called reactive oxygen species (ROS). Now, research led by a ...

Combining antibiotics changes their effectiveness

06-Jul-2018

The effectiveness of antibiotics can be altered by combining them with each other, non-antibiotic drugs or even with food additives. Depending on the bacterial species, some combinations stop antibiotics from working to their full potential whilst others begin to defeat antibiotic resistance, ...
