Investigators identified a molecular “brake” that can reduce the activation of damaging cells known to cause primary graft dysfunction — a leading culprit in lung transplant failure.
A Northwestern Medicine study has uncovered distinct roles of major nuclear lamin isoforms in maintaining intracellular interactions and cellular mechanics.
Investigators have discovered that two cytoskeletal proteins which were previously thought to function independently actually interact and form essential cytoskeletal networks within the cell surface.
Motor proteins “slingshot” microtubules within developing egg cells of fruit flies, creating a current that transports mRNA to a developing egg.
