UCI-led study reveals how blood cells help wounds heal scar-free

University of California, Irvine

New insights on circumventing a key obstacle on the road to anti-scarring treatment have been published by Maksim Plikus, an associate professor in development and cell biology at the UCI School of Biological Sciences and colleagues in Nature Communications. The research team discovered that the natural scar-free skin repair process relies partially on assistance from circulating blood cells. The results point the way toward possible treatments for scar-free wound healing that target the body’s own blood cells.

CFN User Spotlight: Morgan Huse Measures the Mechanical Forces Generated by Immune Cells

Brookhaven National Laboratory

Immunologist Morgan Huse of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center takes advantage of the microfabrication tools and electron microscopes at the CFN to generate micropatterned elastic surfaces composed of flexible micropillars that he then uses to measure the mechanical forces exerted by T cells.

UA Little Rock nanotechnology researchers discover new method to quantify graphene at the cellular level

University of Arkansas at Little Rock

An article written by University of Arkansas at Little Rock researchers, students, and collaborators has been accepted for publication into “Nanoscale,” a peer-reviewed scientific journal, as well as included in the 2018 Nanoscale HOT Article Collection. The article, “Quantification of cellular associated graphene and induced surface receptor responses,” presents a new, combination-based way to quantify and analyze the effect of graphene at the single cell level.

Researchers develop human cell-based model to study small cell lung cancer

The Rockefeller University Press

Researchers from Weill Cornell Medicine have used human embryonic stem cells to create a new model system that allows them to study the initiation and progression of small cell lung cancer (SCLC). The study, which will be published February 8 in the Journal of Experimental Medicine, reveals the distinct roles played by two critical tumor suppressor genes that are commonly mutated in these highly lethal cancers.

Blood Cells Could Hold Master Clock Behind Aging

Case Western Reserve University

Blood cells could hold the key to aging, according to new research out of Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine. In a study published in Aging Cell, researchers found human blood cells have an intrinsic clock that remains steady even after transplant. The researchers say the clock could control human aging and may underlie blood cancers.

Case Study Documents Bone Cancer in 240-Million-Year-Old Stem-Turtle

JAMA - Journal of the American Medical Association

This research letter documents bone cancer in a 240-million-year-old stem-turtle from the Triassic period, helping to provide more data about the history of cancer in tetrapod evolution. This is a case study about a highly malignant bone tumor on the femur of a shell-less stem-turtle. The appearance of the tumor in the fossilized specimen conforms with present-day periosteal osteosarcoma in humans.

In Their DNA: Rotator Cuff Stem Cells More Likely to Develop into Fat Cells

Wolters Kluwer Health: Lippincott Williams and Wilkins

Why are fat deposits more likely to occur after tears of the shoulder’s rotator cuff, compared to other types of muscle injuries? An increased propensity of stem cells within with rotator cuff muscles to develop into fat cells may explain the difference, reports a study in the February 6, 2019 issue of The Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery. The journal is published in the Lippincott portfolio in partnership with Wolters Kluwer.
