Within every tumor, a battle is being waged. As individual tumor cells acquire new mutations that promote their survival and growth, they clonally expand at the expense of tumor cells – [Read More]

Patients with cystic fibrosis (CF) have fluid and mucus buildup in their lungs because of mutations that cause misfolding, intracellular retention, and degradation of the cystic fibrosis – [Read More]
22 May
Numerous compounds in pharmaceutical research have carbon-nitrogen bonds, and chemists are always looking for ways to make them more efficiently. Gui et al. present a method – [Read More]
22 May
Almost a third of the world's people do not have access to hygienic latrines. Improving access to and increasing the use of latrines would reduce deaths and poor health caused by diarrheal – [Read More]
22 May
Adoptive T cell therapy (ACT) has had success in treating some types of cancer, but widespread use is limited in part by a lack of tumor-specific targets. Tumor-infiltrating T cells – [Read More]
22 May
Mercury is the only terrestrial planet other than Earth with an active, internally generated magnetic field. Results from the MESSENGER spacecraft indicate that the field is almost – [Read More]
22 May
Studies in monkeys have implicated the brain's posterior parietal cortex in high-level coding of planned and imagined actions. Aflalo et al. implanted two microelectrode arrays – [Read More]
22 May
How far across evolution do families of genes retain their function? Yeast and humans are separated by roughly a billion years of evolutionary history, and yet genes from one can substitute – [Read More]
22 May
For years, scientists divided the immune system into two arms: innate and adaptive. The cell types involved in the two arms differ in specificity and in how quickly they respond to – [Read More]
22 May
The terrestrial biosphere absorbs about a quarter of all anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions, but the amount that they take up varies from year to year. Why? Combining models and – [Read More]
22 May
Although the lanthanide elements are not rare in Earth's crust, they are highly insoluble and difficult to separate. A biological role for these elements has therefore seemed implausible, – [Read More]
22 May
Identifying the chromatin state of any single cell, which may or may not have a different function or represent different stages relative to others collected within any single culture, – [Read More]
22 May
The prokaryote Sulfolobus islandicus lives at extreme temperatures (∼80°C) and acidity (pH 3). It is infected by the rudivirus SIRV2. DiMaio et al. determined the st – [Read More]
22 May
During the viral replication cycle of HIV, unspliced dimeric RNA genomes are efficiently packaged into new virions at the host cell membrane. Packaging is directed by a region at the – [Read More]
