Biodiversity Loss Raises Risk of 'Extinction Cascades' - Laboratory Equipment


Laboratory Equipment
New research shows that the loss of biodiversity can increase the risk of "extinction cascades," where an initial species loss leads to a domino effect of further extinctions. The researchers, from the University of Exeter, showed there is a higher ...

Novel mechanism linking changes in mitochondria to cancer cell death - Science Daily


Science Daily
The findings, published in Nature Cell Biology, demonstrate that the enzyme RIPK1 decreases the number of mitochondria in a cell. This loss of mitochondria leads to oxidative stress that can potentially kill cancer cells, though researchers speculate ...

Cell adhesion research : Martin Humphries Laboratory

Manchester - United Kingdom

Martin's research aims to elucidate the mechanisms responsible for metazoan life; specifically the role of cell adhesion in integrating signalling with tissue environment.

His main discoveries include pinpointing sites within extracellular matrix molecules that determine adhesion, developing these agents as anti-inflammatory therapeutics, determining the mechanisms of adhesion receptor activation, and elucidating how adhesion receptors act as sensors of the cell microenvironment
