Damaging Healthy Eye Cells: New Insights Into Diseases Causing The Loss Of Vision.

Source : Medical News Today

There are two major light receptor cells in the mammalian eye: rods and cones. New research by scientists from Duke University have shown that dying cone cells can trigger the demise of healthy rod cells, leading to the loss of vision.Full Story

    Listen in on Cellular Chatter with These Exosome-Analysis Tools

    When it comes to bodily fluids, we tend to think of them as homogeneous. But that isn’t precisely true. Yes, protein (and nucleic acids) do float free in serum, urine and other samples. But some biomolecules are encapsulated within lipid-bound compartments called exosomes or vesicles, and researchers increasingly are mining these as rich veins of molecular candidates for biomarker discovery.

    Add a Molecular Dimension to Your Tissue Slices with Imaging Mass Spectrometry

    Imaging Mass Spectrometry scans a tissue section point by point, amassing a dataset that correlates molecular species with their spatial positions. The images are sharper than ever. What’s changed is the maximum possible pixel resolution of the images researchers can take, and the variety of spectral “cameras” that can be used to generate them.
