    MPAK Pathway Can Help in Treating Renal Diseases

    The number of people suffering from kidney related disorders often termed as Renal Disorders is on rise in the world. Diseases like diabetes and other congenital abnormalities occur very frequently and have played a crucial role in the development of renal diseases. The only options available to the patients for the treatment is dialysis and kidney transplant. And both these…

    Molecule Acting as a “Bomb Squad” to Save Body from Tumor

    What’s New? A new study sheds light on how a molecule recognizes the certain type of tumor and disarms the harmful protein causing a tumor. Notch Signaling Pathway Notch signaling pathway is present in the most multicellular organism and is very important for embryonic development. This type of cell signaling pathway helps in maintaining a balance of stem cell in brain…

    New Protocol Managed to Create Kidney Cells in The Laboratory

    Podocytes are the cells of the kidney which are highly specialized terminally differentiated and are present in the Bowman’s capsule of the kidney. A new study led by the team of researchers from Wyss Harward university led to new protocol with the help of which a large number of mature human podocytes can be produced which in turn can lead…

    New Study Challenges Assumed Cell Division Process

    A new study led by the researchers at Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (OIST) has challenged the assumed aspects of cell division i.e. how this process has been thought to work. Cell division, essential process of life in which chromosome duplicates into sister chromatid, aligned in an equatorial plane and then segregates into two daughter cells. This process…

    Plasmodium Parasite Tricks Liver Cells To Survive and Cause Malaria

    We are fighting the battle against malaria mainly by either helping people evade infected mosquitos or developing an approach to killing the parasite after it enters the bloodstream. But a team of Duke University researchers wants to use a different strategy which is to disrupt the parasite while it hides inside the liver. A new study led by the team…

    Tracking Cell With SNP’s ‘A Natural Barcode’

    A new study led by the researchers of Wyss Institute has developed a new technique for genetic analysis of cell using SNPs which are a’ natural barcode’ identifying cell from any individual. SNPs stands for single nucleotide polymorphism is a variation in single nucleotide occurring at the particular position in the genome. These SNPs are inherited from the parents are…

    A Link Between Mitochondrial Protein Defect and Severe Inflammation

    A new study led by Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB Barcelona) proposed the concept that inflammation can be caused even by the absence of single protein. Severe inflammation is the immune response of body involving a vascular system in which plasma and leucocyte movement get increased from blood to injured tissue. It attacks the healthy normal tissue mistaking for…

    How Genetic Mutation Restricts Mitochondria

     Mitochondria are double-membrane-bound organelle that is considered as a powerhouse of the cell as it generates energy in the form of ATP by using nutrients from food and oxygen. Without mitochondria, higher animals would likely not exist because their cells would only be able to obtain energy from anaerobic respiration (in the absence of oxygen), a process much less efficient than aerobic respiration. Mitochondria help in producing many metabolic products…
