They describe current attempts to isolate the totipotent cells found in stem cell cultures, which involve manipulating gene networks or intercellular signaling pathways.
Since their discovery more than 30 years ago, EVs--nanometer-sized cell-signaling particles-- have been increasingly found to play a role in intercellular communication, capable of delivering functional proteins, mRNA transcripts, and miRNA to cells throughout the body.
This year's review of genetics contains 23 studies of such aspects as witnessing genome evolution: experimental reconstruction of endosymbiotic and horizontal gene transfer, transcriptional regulation in Archaea: from individual genes to global regulatory networks, genetic and structural analysis of RRNPP intercellular peptide signaling of Gram-positive bacteria, combining traditional mutagenesis with new high-throughput sequencing and genome editing to reveal hidden variation in polyploid wheat, and the generation and evolution of neural cell types and circuits: insights from the Drosophila visual system.
DNA double-strand break repair is activated by low radiation doses and may involve intercellular communications arising as what has been called an epi-regulated cell-community-wide (epicellcom) process.
From the perspective of biological process, many genes had participated in the various biological processes associated with tumor, such as cell differentiation, cell or intercellular adhesion, calcium ion transmembrane activity regulation, cell proliferation regulation, cell migration regulation, metabolism process of guanosine triphosphate and diphosphate nucleic acid, and associated signal transmission, and electrically coupled cell communication.
Table-1: Comparison of intercellular adhesion molecules between cases and controls.
In this study, we observed that culture supernatant of all SEPEC strains isolated from patients with sepsis (HC/UNICAMP, Campinas, SP, Brazil), (3) were cytotoxic to human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC), causing loss of intercellular junctions, cellular elongation and death.
Direct immunofluorescence microscopy showed intercellular deposition of IgG and C3.
Many cells of the detached stratum malphighii shows loss of intercellular bridges leading to acantholysis.
Dr Lydia Tabernero explains the results, "Scientists had always thought the reason for these incredibly strong connections was because the molecules were very rigid and structured as they are in other, weaker intercellular junctions.
The intercellular skin lipids (those located between comeocytes) are composed mainly of hydrophobic ceramides, long chain fatty acids, cholesterol and cholestryl derivatives, and are organized in a gel crystalline rigid structure to control penetration.
At lower temperatures, the water has withdrawn from plant cells (to prevent them from rupture as the water expands into ice) and ice forms in the intercellular spaces.
