Discovery of hematopoietic stem cells in Drosophila makes it a potential model to study how blood develops and gain insight into blood disorders and diseases.
In a first, scientists from TIFR record and describe the live process of sperm release in fruit fly.
Cellular motors play a critical role in our immune response to pathogens. Researchers from the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai have gained new insight into how teams of motors assemble to transport and help to destroy pathogens enclosed in immune cells.
Satyajit Mayor's team from the National Centre for Biological Sciences (NCBS), Bangalore, was selected by the American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) to star in a Celldance video that features their work on cell membrane organisation.
Scientists from ICGEB investigate the mechanism by which the TAF15 protein recognises and binds to its RNA target.
Researchers from IISc identify and shed light on the role of protein complexes that play key roles in transporting synthesizing enzymes that aid melanin production in cells.
Cells live and function in a noisy world. In order to survive, they must engage in a dialogue with this environment. The transfer of information (and matter) from the outside to inside is regulated by the cell membrane. How the membrane achieves this control has been the subject of investigation for many decades now. A collaboration of scientists—cell biologists, physicists and chemists—has now identified a key physico-chemical process, and helped … More
