Identifying the source of stem cells

10/30/2014
EAST LANSING, Mich. – When most animals begin life, cells immediately begin accepting assignments to become a head, tail or a vital organ. However, mammals, including humans, are special. The cells of mammalian embryos get to make a different first choice – to become the protecti... [Comments]Identifying the source of stem cells

Together we are strong -- or insufferable

Breakdown in gut barriers to bacteria may promote inflammation and craving in alcoholics

10/30/2014
Philadelphia, PA, October 30, 2014 – Bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract fulfill many vital functions and are critical for digestion. Yet, these same bacteria can induce strong inflammatory responses by the immune system if they penetrate the gut and enter the bloodstream. Although acute inflammation is a natural response to protect the body, chronic or systemic inflammation is li... [Comments]

Ion adsorption matter in biology

10/30/2014
New York | Heidelberg, 30 October 2014 Biological membranes are mainly composed of lipid bilayers. Gaining a better understanding of adsorption of solution ions onto lipid membranes helps clarify functional processes in biological cells. Now, a new study provides a quantitative description of the equilibria between lipid membranes and surrounding solution ions. Joanna Kotyńska and Zbign... [Comments]
