Q&A: Controlling 'inflammaging,' inflammation that occurs with aging

A team at the CRCHUM—Université de Montréal's hospital research center—has discovered a new function for proteins responsible for DNA repair in the control of an inflammatory response in aging cells, also known as senescent ...

Study into DNA biology could impact future anti-cancer therapies

A study by the Centre for Chromosome Biology at NUI Galway, Ireland, in partnership with the University of Zurich, has uncovered new insights into how the replication of DNA occurs which can be applied to help develop novel ...

Immunology

A new pathway to 'reprogram' killer cells

The so-called natural killer (NK) cells are cells of the innate immune system that recognize and eliminate infected cells or cancer cells. During a virus infection, NK cells also keep the body's own immune cells such as the ...

Mechanism for the formation of new blood vessels discovered

Researchers from Uppsala University have revealed for the first time a mechanism for how new blood vessels are formed and have shown the importance of this mechanism for embryo survival and organ function. The results could ...
