Inorganic phosphate nanorods are a novel fluorescent label in cell biology

Abstract We present the first use of inorganic fluorescent lanthanide ortho phosphate [LnPO 4] as a novel fluorescent marker in cell biology, and we discuss it here. These nanorods, which were synthesized by the microwave process, retain their fluorescent properties after internalization into human umbilical vein endothelial cells, 786-O cells, or renal carcinoma cells.

Nano-Bio-Technology and Sensing Chips: New Systems for Detection in Personalized Therapies and Cell Biology

New electrochemical methods are also needed to detect disease biomarkers and therapeutic compounds in addition to molecular medicine and cell biology research. The aim of this paper is to review the most recent developments in Nano-Bio-Technology, which includes the introduction of new electrochemical techniques for personalized therapy and cell culture monitoring.

Dual Crosslinked Methacrylated Alginate Hydrogel Micron Fibers and Tissue Constructs for Cell Biology

Ionic crosslinking is the most common method used to produce alginate-based biomaterials, but ionic crosslinked alginate hydrogels are prone to decomposition in a physiological environment, limiting their use in biomedical fields. The ionic crosslinked methacrylate hydrogel microfibers manufactured by Microfluidic Fabrication system were exposed to ultraviolet light and covalent crosslink between methacrylate and methacrylate groups prevented the breakdown of dual crosslinked macromolecular chains in the corporate environment. Cell-encapsulated Alg-MA microfibers scaffolds with functional 3D tissue architectures were designed, and they showed great promise in the manufacture of next-generation scaffolds for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.

The Notch signaling pathway involvement in innate lymphoid cell biology

In the late 1990s, Notch's role in the immune system was first described. We provide an extended account of the pleiotropic effects of the Notch signaling on the innate lymphoid cell biology. We review the most recent evidence on Notch signaling in the regulation of ILC differentiation, plasticity, and functions in a variety of tissue types and at both the fetal and adult developmental stages. The Notch pathway is also a vital player in both ILC cell fate determination and ILC immune response, and ILC immune responses.

Zebrafish Vascular Mural Cell Biology: Recent Advances, Development, and Functions

Our new ability, which are more spatial resolution than ever, allows us to investigate the origins of mural cell proliferation from their progenitors. In addition, a new phenotypic review of platelet-derived growth factor beta mutant zebrafish revealed well-conserved organotypic mural cell formation and functions in vertebrates with the unique characteristics of zebrafish. We also discuss the key attributes of zebrafish mural cell development, particularly at early stages and functions.

Concise Review: Asymmetric Cell Divisions in Stem Cell Biology

Somatic stem cells are a unique cell line that can be present in numerous organs and tissues. However, the information regarding the mechanisms that control somatic stem cell fate decisions is limited, however. The process of asymmetric cell division is one of several somatic stem cell systems that have been described to regulate daughter cell fates in various somatic stem cell cultures. ACD is a tightly controlled and evolutionary conserved process that allows a single stem or progenitor cell to produce two separately identified daughter cells.

Storytelling as a Tool to Enhance Conceptual Knowledge in Cell Biology

Many undergraduate students have trouble with integrating complex knowledge components into a single picture and integrating research findings into the learning process, according to ABSTRACT Evidence in a variety of fields. We transformed undergraduate cell biology class by including the concept of storylines that are chosen by groups of students for development throughout the semester to help build and improve on project-based approaches to teaching cell biology. Pre- and post-assignment assessments of self-efficacy and content knowledge were used in undergraduate cell biology class, and these results revealed that both parameters were significantly enhanced following each assignment. We conclude that using storytelling helps to weave multiple layers of information in a difficult class, and that such integration is both beneficial and helpful.
