Recent advances in imaging technology are transforming how scientists see the cellular universe, showing the form and movement of once grainy and blurred structures in stunning detail. (Medical News Today)

Newly-discovered process helps drosophila cope when temperatures get cold
Cold-blooded animals cannot regulate their body temperature, so their cells are stressed when facing temperature extremes. (Medical News Today)

Distinctive developmental origin for a drainage tube in the eye
A Jackson Laboratory based research team has conducted a comprehensive exploration of an eye structure known as Schlemm's canal: a key gatekeeper for the proper flow of eye fluid, presenting a... (Medical News Today)

Researchers identify more than 80 new genes linked to schizophrenia
An international team of researchers has identified 108 genes - 83 of which were previously undiscovered - associated with schizophrenia, potentially shedding light on its causes. (Medical News Today)

Life's imprint on DNA now mappable in single cell
With the influence of life experience, epigenetic markers select the options that our DNA gives us. Now, a powerful new method can map all epigenetic changes in a single cell. (Medical News Today)

Calorie restriction with resveratrol key to kick-starting cell health
As cells age, damaged proteins and lipids accumulate within them. Impaired cell parts can send free radicals into the body, and dysfunctional proteins and lipids may break down DNA within cells... (Medical News Today)

Biomedical technologies may be improved by protein in squid skin
The common pencil squid (Loliginidae) may hold the key to a new generation of medical technologies that could communicate more directly with the human body. (Medical News Today)

Gene identified that controls the timing of precisely ordered events during maturation
Closely related organisms share most of their genes, but these similarities belie major differences in behavior, intelligence, and physical appearance. (Medical News Today)

Structure of protein vital to cancer development is mapped
‘One of the most important and most complicated’ proteins in nature has been mapped by scientists, who say that they can use this knowledge to greatly further cancer research. (Medical News Today)

Scientists find ancient protein-building enzymes have undergone metamorphosis and evolved diverse new functions
Scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) and Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) and their collaborators have found that ancient enzymes, known for their fundamental... (Medical News Today)

Findings could revolutionise our understanding of timing during development
Many animals exhibit segmental patterns that manifest themselves during development. (Medical News Today)

Study finds friends are genetically similar
A genome-wide analysis reveals that on average, people have more DNA in common with their friends than with strangers in the same population. (Medical News Today)

New study reveals how cholesterol promotes cancer
Researchers have discovered a protein that, when bound with cholesterol, sends signals down a pathway that encourages cell growth and division, promoting cancer. (Medical News Today)

Revolutionary technology enables scientists to navigate and analyze complex 3D images
Researchers have pioneered a revolutionary new way to digitally navigate three-dimensional images. (Medical News Today)

New technology reveals insights into mechanisms underlying amyloid diseases
Amyloid diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease, type 2 diabetes, cataracts, and the spongiform encephalopathies, all share the common trait that proteins aggregate into long fibers which then form... (Medical News Today)

Wild gorillas provide compelling evidence of olfactory communication in hominoids
Silverback gorillas appear to use odor as a form of communication to other gorillas, according to a study published in the open-access journal PLOS ONE by Michelle Klailova from University of... (Medical News Today)

Plants respond to predators' chewing sounds
New study shows that plants unleash chemicals to fend off predators when exposed to the sounds of caterpillars chewing leaves, but not other sounds with same acoustic features. (Medical News Today)

Scripps Florida scientists uncover new compounds that could affect circadian rhythm
Scientists from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have discovered a surprising new role for a pair of compounds - which have the potential to alter circadian rhythm, the... (Medical News Today)

Wake-up call for more research into cell metabolism
More scientific research into the metabolism of stromal support cells and immune cells - and the role of the metabolism of these cell types in the development of diseases - could open new... (Medical News Today)

The 'yin and yang' of malaria parasite development
'Herculean study' into malaria parasite development is completed - bringing scientists closer to disrupting the life-cycle of this highly efficient parasite. (Medical News Today)

How tumors weaken blood barrier in brain cancer patients explained
Glioblastoma is difficult to treat because drugs cannot traverse the blood brain barrier. Now a study shows this aggressive tumor weakens the barrier, providing a window for drugs. (Medical News Today)

Bone marrow hormone influences metabolism and health
The fat in our bone marrow has mostly been linked to negative health consequences such as reduced bone mass - now a new study reveals a beneficial link to reduced risk of diseases. (Medical News Today)

Scientists probe DNA of 'Evolution Canyon' fruit flies and find drivers of change
Scientists have long puzzled over the genetic differences between fruit flies that live hardly a puddle jump apart in a natural environment known as "Evolution Canyon" in Mount Carmel, Israel. (Medical News Today)

Does green algae hold a genetic clue to the origin of the sexes?
