Body's natural signal carriers can help melanoma spread

A new study from Finland sheds fresh light on how melanoma cells interact with other cells via extracellular vesicles they secrete. The researchers found that extracellular vesicles secreted by melanoma cells use the so-called hedgehog signalling pathway to intensify the... Continue Reading →

Researchers identify gene with functional role in aging of eye

A lengthy-named gene called Elongation of Very Long Chain Fatty Acids Protein 2 or ELOVL2 is an established biomarker of age. In a new paper, published online January 14, 2020 in the journal Aging Cell, researchers at University of California San... Continue Reading →

Borromean rings

These three loops cannot be taken apart, but if you remove any one of them the other two will be disconnected. When any two loops are pulled apart, it’s clear that the other loop is the only thing keeping them... Continue Reading →

A replacement for exercise?

Whether it be a brisk walk around the park or high intensity training at the gym, exercise does a body good. But what if you could harness the benefits of a good workout without ever moving a muscle? Michigan Medicine... Continue Reading →

Living robots built using frog cells

A book is made of wood. But it is not a tree. The dead cells have been repurposed to serve another need. Now a team of scientists has repurposed living cells -- scraped from frog embryos -- and assembled them... Continue Reading →

Baby and adult brains 'sync up' during play

Have you ever played with a baby and felt a sense of connection, even though they couldn't yet talk to you? New research suggests that you might quite literally be "on the same wavelength," experiencing similar brain activity in the... Continue Reading →
