In a work of systematic biology that advances the field, University of Alabama at Birmingham researchers have identified 16 distinct cell populations in a complex area of the midbrain called…

New knowledge on lymphoid cell maturity could lead to more effective IBD therapies — ScienceDaily

A research group at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden has analysed how certain immune cells known as innate lymphoid cells (ILCs) develop into mature cells that play a part in inflammatory…

Carbon-coated nickel enables fuel cell free of precious metals — ScienceDaily

A nitrogen doped carbon-coated nickel anode can catalyze an essential reaction in hydrogen fuel cells at a fraction of the cost of the precious metals currently used, Cornell University researchers…

Targeting inflammatory brain cell may be effective for brain diseases linked to tau protein — ScienceDaily

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common and best known of the tauopathies, a set of neurodegenerative brain diseases caused by toxic tangles of the protein tau. A study by researchers…

Researchers tested the substance in human lung cell samples — ScienceDaily

Investigators at Cedars-Sinai have identified a potential new therapy for COVID-19: a biologic substance created by reengineered human skin cells. Scientists found the substance stopped SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes…

Scientists map entire human gut at single cell resolution — ScienceDaily

If you get nervous, you might feel it in your gut. If you eat chili, your gut might revolt, but your friend can eat anything and feel great. You can…

Researchers identify key regulator of blood stem cell development — ScienceDaily

A protein that masterminds the way DNA is wrapped within chromosomes has a major role in the healthy functioning of blood stem cells, which produce all blood cells in the…

Eight COVID-19 drugs remain active against Omicron in cell culture study — ScienceDaily

A new study by researchers from the University of Kent and the Goethe University Frankfurt shows that the SARS-CoV-2 Omicron variant is less effective than Delta at blocking a cellular…

Lymphoma cell metabolism may provide new cancer target — ScienceDaily

Aggressive and relatively common lymphomas called diffuse large B cell lymphomas (DLBCLs) have a critical metabolic vulnerability that can be exploited to trick these cancers into starving themselves, according to…
