The line of succession in neuron function

A specific region of messenger RNAs, the 3' untranslated region (3'UTR), plays an important role for cells to function properly. During embryonic development, 3'UTRs in hundreds of RNAs lengthen exclusively in neurons, which ...

The role of T-cells in SARS-CoV-2 virus defense

Our immune system can efficiently fend off viral diseases. T-cells can directly destroy virus-infected cells and enable the formation of efficient, virus-neutralizing antibodies by B-cells. These two cell types also play ...

Researchers seek insights into cancer's hidden vulnerabilities

One of the biggest challenges to the development of medical treatments for cancer is the fact that there is no single kind of cancer. Cancers derive from many kinds of cells and tissues, and each have their own characteristics, ...
