Tracing the Path of Parkinson’s Disease Proteins

Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania have developed a set of tools to observe, monitor and quantify how misfolded proteins associated with Parkinson’s disease enter neurons in laboratory cultures and what happens to them once they’re inside.

Bioprinted Veins Reveal New Drug Diffusion Details

A new advance, published this week in the journal Biomicrofluidics, now offers the ability to construct vascularized tissue and mimic in vivo drug administration in 3-D bioprinted liver tissue. A truly international collaboration, with researchers affiliated with Chile, Italy, Saudi Arabia, Korea and the U.S., developed this relatively simple liver model to offer a more accurate system for drug toxicity testing.

Deciphering Potent DNA Toxin’s Secrets

YTM-lesion-fea.jpg

One of the most potent toxins known acts by welding the two strands of the famous double helix together in a unique fashion which foils the standard repair mechanisms cells use to protect their DNA. A team of Vanderbilt University researchers have worked out the molecular details that explain how this bacterial toxin—yatakemycin (YTM)—kills cells by preventing DNA replication.

Magic Helps Unmask How the Brain Works

Scientists have used the “mirror box” illusion – an old magic trick – in a number of neuroscience studies. Researchers at the University of Delaware are using a new version of the illusion to study how the brain processes multiple sensory inputs to perceive our bodies and the world around us.
