Scientists at IRB Barcelona publish the details of an old tissue transplant method for Drosophila melanogaster.
This technique allows the study of tumour growth and tissue regeneration
Researchers at IRB Barcelona unravel a role for tumour suppressor genes in restricting the growth of neighbouring cell populations.
The study, published yesterday in PLoS Biology, might have implications for understanding the early events of tumorigenesis and the selection of the tumour-initiating cells.
The study, published in Current Biology, focuses on cilia, the cellular structures that by sensing chemicals and mechanical forces allow for smelling, hearing, and many other essential functions.
Researchers at IRB Barcelona reveal that the protein E-Cadherin is required for groups of diverse cells to migrate together
Tumours with intermediary levels of E-Cadherin generally have a poorer prognosis; the phenomenon of heterogeneous cell migration may be related to this
