Researchers have discovered a new molecule called pax7 that opens up parts of the compacted genome, enabling access by transcription factors. The team proved that pax7 was essential for the differentiation of stem cells in the pituitary, which use the same genes to develop.
Lipoproteins are special particles providing the body's solution for transporting water insoluble fats, namely, triglycerides and cholesterol, around the body. They comprise a central droplet of fat surrounded by a single-layer shell of phospholipids.
New research has shown the relationship between adolescent life satisfaction and screen time.
New research suggests that regular exercise could extend the life expectancy of breast cancer survivors, by lowering their increased risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and potentially breast cancer recurrence.
'Omics' research is based on non-targeted investigations that provide a holistic view of the molecules present in a cell, tissue or organism and how they change in response to environmental stimuli. The different branches of 'omics' research each focuses on a specific of cell components.
Researchers in China have uncovered the proteins used by the brain to balance excitation and inhibition, so that functions such as moving a leg (excitation) can be stopped (inhibition).

Optogenetics is the science of using light to control the behavior of cells. It is one of the most rapidly evolving fields of applied research. Optogenetic techniques enable the control of electrically excitable cells such as muscle or nerve cells.
Chagas disease is a parasitic infection caused by the protozoan Trypanosoma cruzi. It is most often transmitted by nocturnal, blood-sucking insects called kissing bugs. When the kissing bug feeds, it defecates, and the sleeping victim unconsciously scratches the bite scene and introduces the infected feces into their blood stream.
Mental health, as with any other aspects of health, can be affected by a range of socioeconomic factors that need to be addressed through comprehensive strategies involving access to preventions, treatments and facilitating recovery as well as raising awareness.

It is important to select the proper camera for fluorescence microscopy which has high sensitivity and low noise, to avoid photo bleaching your sample. A monochrome camera is also preferred for fluorescence imaging because it does not have a color filter pattern superimposed over the image sensor. Since the microscope’s filter wheel selects which wavelength makes its way to the sensor, a monochrome camera allows equal signal detection on all pixels and increases the overall sensitivity of the camera.
