Researchers have shown that tweaking the tiny inner parts of a cell could prevent the damage caused due to aging.
New insights on circumventing a key obstacle on the road to anti-scarring treatment have been published by Maksim Plikus, an associate professor in development and cell biology at the UCI School of Biological Sciences and colleagues in Nature Communications.
Collective cell migration, where groups of cells move together with a common purpose, is important for processes ranging from wound healing to tumor metastasis.
The increased deposition of connective tissue is a problem in chronic diseases of many organs such as the lungs, liver, kidneys, gut, and the skin.
According to new research, women are at a highest risk of breast cancer, more than two decades after having given birth. This finding comes along with another in a separate study that reveals that breast cancers occurring after childbirth are more likely to spread compared to breast cancers in women who never had children.
Scientists from Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU), Department of Medicine 3 - Rheumatology and Immunology, headed by Prof. Dr. Georg Schett, have now decrypted a molecular network that controls these processes and could in future provide a new way to treat organ scarring.
Amiram Goldblum and his team at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem's Institute for Drug Research have discovered 27 new molecules. These molecules all activate a special protein called PPAR-delta and have the potential to treat fatty liver disease, obesity, diabetic nephrotoxicity, and to heal wounds.
Growth factors are ligands that play important roles in the body - they are responsible for tissue regeneration, wound healing, and the maintenance and growth of cells.
