Studying Mitosis’ Structure to Understand the Inside of Cancer Cells

BPS-Viswanath-yeast.jpg

Cell division is an intricately choreographed ballet of proteins and molecules that divide the cell. During mitosis, microtubule-organizing centers assemble the spindle fibers that separate the copying chromosomes of DNA. While scientists are familiar with MTOCs’ existence and the role they play in cell division, their actual physical structure remains poorly understood. Researchers are now trying to decipher their molecular architecture, and they will present their work during the 62nd Biophysical Society Annual Meeting, held Feb. 17-21.

Ras Protein’s Role in Spreading Cancer

Protein systems make up the complex signaling pathways that control whether a cell divides or, in some cases, metastasizes. Ras proteins have long been the focus of cancer research because of their role as “on/off switch” signaling pathways that control cell division and failure to die like healthy cells do. Now, a team of researchers has been able to study precisely how Ras proteins interact with cell membrane surfaces.

Stretchable Electronics a 'Game Changer' for Stroke Recovery Treatment

A new throat sensor is the latest in engineering professor John Rogers' growing portfolio of stretchable electronics that are precise enough for use in advanced medical care and portable enough to be worn outside the hospital, even during extreme exercise.

New Research: Increased Stress on Fathers Leads to Brain Development Changes in Offspring

New research in mice has found that a father’s stress affects the brain development of his offspring. This stress changes the father’s sperm, which can then alter the brain development of the child. This new research provides a much better understanding of the key role that fathers play in the brain development of offspring.

Microneedling: Experienced Hands Can Improve the Face

Microneedling treatments can improve the appearance of large pores, fine lines and wrinkles, scars, and stretch marks, but at-home devices won’t provide the same effects as an in-office treatment from a board-certified dermatologist.

Public, Researchers Demonstrate Growing Interest in Cannabis Treatment

Because cannabis has anti-inflammatory properties, there may be potential for topical cannabis to improve conditions such as acne, psoriasis and eczema by reducing the inflammation associated with these diseases.

Research Sheds Light on Parents’ Views of Indoor Tanning

Asgari.jpg

A survey of more than 1,200 parents indicates that some groups are more likely than others to have favorable attitudes toward adolescent indoor tanning, which can increase young people’s risk of developing skin cancer later in life.
