Researchers take a deep look at peroxisomal processes
28-Sep-2023 - Every system has its waste disposal system. The cell organelles known as “peroxisomes” dispose toxic substances and fats in the human body, among other things, and, in doing so, they prevent serious illnesses. The “Pex” group of proteins (peroxisomes biogenesis factors) keep these “detox units” ...
Demonstrating the significance of individual molecules during mechanical stress in cells
A new method for examining mechanical processes in cells
29-Jun-2023 - The cells in our body are continuously exposed to mechanical forces that are either externally applied or generated by the cells themselves. Being able to respond to such mechanical stimuli is an indispensable prerequisite for a large number of biological processes. However, how cells manage to ...
Cell labelling method from microscopy adapted for use in whole-body imaging for the first time
Researchers develop imaging methods to examine bodily processes from the individual building blocks to the whole system
01-Oct-2021 - Processes and structures within the body that are normally hidden from the eye can be made visible through medical imaging. Scientists use imaging to investigate the complex functions of cells and organs and search for ways to better detect and treat diseases. In everyday medical practice, images ...
High-resolution microscope built from LEGO and bits of phone
Research shows constructing microscope improves children’s understanding - enlightening, educational and fun
06-Jul-2021 - Microscopy is an essential tool in many fields of science and medicine. However, many groups have limited access to this technology due to its cost and fragility. Now, researchers from the Universities of Göttingen and Münster have succeeded in building a high-resolution microscope using nothing ...
