Increasing brain stiffness as we age leads to stem cell dysfunction, new research published in Nature has reported. The study shows how older stem cells can be reverted to a younger and healthier state, a novel discovery that has important implications for a number of degenerative diseases and our fundamental understanding of the aging process.
 
   Structure and Function of ProteoglycansStructure and Function of Proteoglycans
 
Proteoglycans are ubiquitous molecules that function as critical components of the extracellular matrix. These proteins are composed of glycosaminoglycan chains that are covalently attached to a protein core. Even though just a handful of proteins have the propensity to become proteoglycans, their range of functions and potential roles in organism development is extremely broad.

New T cell detection method promises personalized immunotherapy for melanomasAn important new study shows that better T cell detection is now possible using revolutionary technology. T cells are a type of lymphocyte, which in turn belongs to the diverse family of immune cells. They take part in cancer fighting as well as in most other immune responses.
