The sinoatrial node is home to multiple pacemakers that keep the heart beating if the main one falters.
Once implanted into animals’ brains, neural stem cells that secrete microRNA-containing vesicles seem to contribute to an anti-aging effect.
Tissue “seeds” made up of three cell types and patterned onto a scaffold develop into complex structures with some organ function, researchers show.
A new tissue-clearing technique reveals blood vessel networks and collagen scaffolds of dog and human cardiac tissue.
Scientists discover transcripts from the same gene that can express both proteins and noncoding RNA. Â
Tuberculosis is exquisitely adapted to the human body. Researchers need a new game plan for beating it.
The dissection of how cells sense and propagate physical forces is leading to exciting new tools and discoveries in mechanobiology and mechanomedicine.
Plants and fungi can use conserved RNA interference machinery to regulate each other’s gene expression—and scientists think they can make use of this phenomenon to create a new generation of pesticides.
To make sense of the genetic variation within species, researchers are turning to the concept of the pangenome.
Researchers continue to unveil the structure and function of the gateway to the nucleus.
Researchers are using the tissue, synthesized with human pluripotent stem cells and implanted into mice, to study a rare form of Hirschprung’s disease.
The US Food and Drug Administration’s approval of an engineered herpesvirus for the treatment of melanoma marks the first oncolytic virus to enter the market.
Specialized cardiac cells in the mouse heart appear to be the long-sought-after proliferative heart cells.
A chromatin remodeler in embryonic stem cells clears the DNA for mRNA transcription while stifling the expression of noncoding transcripts.
