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 ...

New technique offers insights into early life - Science Daily


Science Daily
Classic cell biology approaches study averaged results collected from many cells meaning that key cell-to-cell differences are lost. Yet, scientists think this variability between cells could hold the key to bigger differences. Each life starts out as ...
