Researchers at Stanford University have reworked CRISPR-Cas9 gene-editing technology to manipulate the genome in three-dimensional space, allowing them to ferry genetic snippets to different locations in a cell’s nucleus. The new technique, dubbed CRISPR-genome organization or simply CRISPR-GO, uses a modified CRISPR protein to reorganize the genome in three dimensions. If CRISPR is like molecular […]Continue Reading ...
With the help of a new rendition of CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing technology, scientists at Stanford have shown that it’s possible to shuttle pieces of DNA around in the nucleus, affecting gene expression and cell behavior. The study, led by Stanley Qi, PhD, hinges on a reengineered version of CRISPR called “CRISPR-genome organization” or CRISPR-GO, which […]Continue Reading ...
August 15, 2018 To test for malignancy or monitor the effectiveness of cancer treatment, a person’s tissue must be extracted, sent to a lab, stained and analyzed by a pathologist–a process that can take days to complete and is subject to human error. Xuanhong Cheng, associate professor of materials science and engineering, and James Hwang, […]Continue Reading ...
July 11, 2017 Over a century since scientists first seen that cells and their nucleus develop at a continuing ratio to one another, we at the moment are nearer to studying how. The mobile cycle, the method of mobile expansion and department that sees “daughter” cells amplify prior to dividing once more, comprises the nucleus […]Continue Reading ...
July 14, 2017 Scientists investigating the genetic reasons and changed functioning of nerve cells in motor neurone illness (MND) have found out a brand new mechanism that might result in contemporary remedy approaches for one of the not unusual types of the illness. The workforce, based totally within the Sheffield Institute for Translational Neuroscience (SITraN), […]Continue Reading ...
Oct 5 2018 Researchers at New York University have found a way to measure the physical properties of the nucleus and its constituents in live human cells. A human nucleus with fluorescently labeled chromatin (green) and two nucleoli (purple) in the process of nucleolar coalescence.

June 13, 2018 Standing guard between a cell’s nucleus and its main chamber, called the cytoplasm, are thousands of behemoth protein structures called nuclear pore complexes, or NPCs. NPCs are like the bouncers of a cell’s nucleus, tightly guarding exactly what goes in and out. Each structure contains about 1,000 protein molecules, making NPCs some […]Continue Reading ...
March 1, 2017 A crew of researchers at Duke College Scientific Heart led through Dr. Paulo Ferreira and whose paintings was once supported through the Nationwide Institutes of Well being has discovered that derailing the delivery of sure receptors that raise cargoes from and to the nucleus of motor neurons reasons motor neuron illness in […]Continue Reading ...
July 11, 2017 Over a century since scientists first seen that cells and their nucleus develop at a relentless ratio to one another, we are actually nearer to studying how. The mobile cycle, the method of mobile enlargement and department that sees “daughter” cells amplify prior to dividing once more, comprises the nucleus – the […]Continue Reading ...
