Connections between the cell cycle, centrosomes and cilia are gaining attention in biomedicine

A conference organised by IRB Barcelona and the BBVA Foundation brings together leading international researchers devoted to two cell organelles that play key roles in health and disease.

Cancer and certain developmental disorders are characterised by impaired activity of these complex cell structures and defects in cell cycle control.

Research into fly development provides insights into blood vessel formation

Researchers working with flies at IRB Barcelona describe that the concentration of some small intracellular organelles determines the branching capacity of tracheal cells.

Tracheal cells are analogous to the cells that form blood vessels in the human body. The inhibition or stimulation of new blood vessels has implications in cancer and in tissue regeneration.

Key protein in stem cell division identified

The study, published in Nature Cell Biology, focuses on the cell organelle known as centrosome, which organises the network of microtubules that serves as the cell’s skeleton.
