Researchers from the Mechanobiology Institute at the National University of Singapore have shown that cells can attach to the fibrous protein meshwork that surrounds them only if the fibres are spaced close enough. The team’s findings can explain the abnormal motility patterns displayed by cancer cells.

24 Apr 2017
Scientists have developed new fluorescent probes that prove the existence of cell membrane structures called ‘lipid rafts’, allowing researchers to study how toxins and viruses invade cells.
Voltage rhythms (top left) were synchronized throughout the SCN while calcium rhythms (top right) were specific to regions within the tissue. This resulted in a phase difference between voltage and calcium rhythms in the dorsal region (bottom right) while the two rhythms were in phase in the ventral region (bottom left).
24 Apr 2017
Cells in the brain’s master circadian clock synchronize voltage rhythms despite asynchronous calcium rhythms, which might explain how a tissue-wide rhythm is maintained.
Stressed dinoflagellates rewrite their genes during transcription.
16 Apr 2017
Dinoflagellates cope with stress by editing their genes rather than changing expression, show researchers at KAUST.
