Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, a green microalga capable of growing in very high light
Plants, algae and cyanobacteria convert sunlight to chemical energy in the process of photosynthesis. Photosynthesis is, however, also damaged by light, mainly through photoinhibition of photosystem II (PSII), which is ...
Light-induced oxidative damage in yellow-green algae Vaucheria litorea
Sea slug Elysia chlorotica incorporates chloroplasts of yellow-green algae Vaucheria litorea into its digestive tract cells where the chloroplasts remain active up to 9 months. The mechanism how these incorporated chloroplasts, ...
Regulation of endoreduplication by protein phosphatase 2A in Arabidopsis thaliana leaves
Plants display an adaptive growth where the size of the plant can be influenced by the environment. For normal growth and development in Arabidopsis thaliana leaves the mitotic cell cycle is essential for cell proliferation ...
MARCO expressing macrophages as a target of cancer immunotherapy
Macrophage receptor with collagenous structure (MARCO) was previously found to be expressed on a subpopulation of pro-tumorigenic M2-type macrophages in different mouse and human tumors. Furthermore, targeting these MARCO+ ...
Screening for Novel Membrane Markers of Adult Hippocampal Neurogenesis
Neurogenesis occurs in the hippocampus throughout adult life both in humans and in rodents. Adult hippocampal neurogenesis (AHN) contributes to memory processes and mood. Neurological disorders such as anxiety and depression ...
Vimentin modulates focal adhesion dynamics in directionally migrating fibroblasts
Cell migration is an integral process in several physiological events essential for normal functioning of an organism. Cell migration is a mechanistic phenomenon that occurs in many steps including cell polarization, ...
