Breaching of integral structure of skin causes cutaneous wounds, healing of which becomes difficult in certain diseased or pathological conditions like diabetes, obesity, infection or traumatic injuries. According to the recent report from Diabetes Atlas, more than
This article is on an interesting subject which is worthy of investigation. In herd health management, knowing when to expect a calving is very important. So far, the influence of the month of calving on gestation length
Natural Killer (NK) cells are immune cells that are found in the blood and protect the body by killing infected and cancerous cells. NK cells can also be found in large numbers in some organs, including the
Cancer in children and young adults is rare, with survival rates being very high, mainly depending on the treatment. The biggest proportion of this diagnosis will be on leukaemia and brain tumours, with just about 3% of
Super-resolution in live cells: Visualizing the molecular organization of the cell division machinery
We set out to elucidate the molecular organization of the proteins of the cytokinetic apparatus, an essential step to understanding the mechanism of cell division. Cytokinesis is best understood in the single cell model organism fission yeast.
Immune cells of the brain called microglia, appear to have been adapted to their vulnerable environment. They react less destructive to danger signals than their counterparts in the blood. Microglia are the resident macrophages of the central
A cell is basically a miniature factory, which contains a large number of dedicated protein machines to perform various mechanical functions. For example kinesin is a linear motor protein which transport cargos such as organelles, chromosomes and
The short answer: hard. Concentrated acid is used in the semiconductor industry as a surface cleaning reagent. However, not every acid is good enough for this. The performance of electronic devices is highly sensitive to the presence
All forms of mercury are long known to be highly toxic. In recent years, the metal occurrence in dental amalgams has raised worries for the harmful effects due to the slow mercury release in the human body.
An oxygen-rich atmosphere was one of the most important prerequisites for the evolution of complex life on earth. Ancestors of modern-days cyanobacteria floated the earth’s atmosphere with this gas roughly 2.8 billion years ago. To convert carbon
In the recent years a growing interest in graphene applications lead to the development of new biosensor devices. Graphene is a powerful sensor due to its extraordinary electron mobility, unique mechanical strength and optical properties. Consequently, the
Membrane proteins act as the gateways of the cell. They are essential for the signalling between cells and for the uptake of nutrients; they constitute major drug-targets in human, and their malfunctions are related to severe diseases
