  • therapeutics
  • Program faculty and students also conduct research at hospital-based research Institutes and Centres, including the BC Cancer Research Centre, the Biomedical Research Centre, the Centre for Brain Health, BC Children's Hospital Research Institute, the Centre for Molecular Medicine and Therapeutics,and the Centre for Macular Research. (ubc.ca)
  • proteins
  • This group discovered circadian rhythms in redox proteins (peroxiredoxins) in cells that lacked a nucleus - human red blood cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • The main constituents of the general molecular composition of the cell includes: proteins and lipids which are either free-flowing or membrane-bound, along with different internal compartments known as organelles. (wikipedia.org)
  • The cell membrane consists of lipids and proteins, which accounts for its hydrophobicity as a result of being non-polar substances. (wikipedia.org)
  • Endocytosis is a form of active transport in which a cell transports molecules (such as proteins) into the cell (endo- + cytosis) by engulfing them in an energy-using process. (wikipedia.org)
  • microbes
  • Plant Health - aims to understand the molecular dialogue between plants and microbes, establishing how they communicate with each other and how they have evolved in relation to one another. (wikipedia.org)
  • exogenous
  • Although the understanding of ectopic expressions deals with endogenous genes in an organism, it can be expended to a similar concept like transgenesis, which an exogenous gene is introduced to a cell or tissue type in which the gene is not usually expressed. (wikipedia.org)
  • This method consists in exposing the cells to specific signaling pathways modulators and manipulating cell culture conditions (environmental or exogenous) to mimick the natural sequence of developmental decisions to produce a given cell type/tissue. (wikipedia.org)
  • behavior
  • In most living things, internally synchronized circadian clocks make it possible for the organism to anticipate daily environmental changes corresponding with the day-night cycle and adjust its biology and behavior accordingly. (wikipedia.org)
  • membrane
  • Therefore, in order for these molecules to participate in reactions, within the cell, they need to be able to cross this membrane layer to get into the cell. (wikipedia.org)
  • They accomplish this process of gaining access to the cell via: osmotic pressure, diffusion, concentration gradients, and membrane channels. (wikipedia.org)
  • Clathrin-coated vesicles (CCVs) are found in virtually all cells and form domains of the plasma membrane termed clathrin-coated pits. (wikipedia.org)
  • Caveolae are the most common reported non-clathrin-coated plasma membrane buds, which exist on the surface of many, but not all cell types. (wikipedia.org)
  • Researchers
  • Researchers are looking at actin polymerization and calcium uptake in human cells to study mitochondrial division. (the-scientist.com)
  • Researchers find that about a quarter of the immune cells are replaced every year. (the-scientist.com)
  • Mitochondria may sustain temperatures more than 10 °C warmer than human cells, say researchers. (the-scientist.com)
  • Researchers map learning-induced chromatin alterations in mouse brain cells, and find that many affect autism-associated genes. (the-scientist.com)
  • It was Smith's original studies of cell division in frogs which help put in place the foundation used by three researchers who ultimately won a Nobel Prize in medicine for identifying the entire cycle of a cell. (wikipedia.org)
  • consists
  • This method, also known as transdifferentiation or direct conversion, consists in overexpressing one or several factors, usually transcription factors, introduced in the cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • This methods consists in selecting the cell type of interest, usually with antibiotic resistance. (wikipedia.org)
  • endosomes
  • In HeLa cells, endosomes are approximately 500 nm in diameter when fully mature. (wikipedia.org)
  • Upon reaching early endosomes, the LDL dissociates from the receptor, and the receptor can be recycled to the cell surface. (wikipedia.org)
  • Early endosomes are often located in the periphery of the cell, and receive most types of vesicles coming from the cell surface. (wikipedia.org)
  • recycle
  • They are principally sorting organelles where many endocytosed ligands dissociate from their receptors in the acid pH of the compartment, and from which many of the receptors recycle to the cell surface (via tubules). (wikipedia.org)
  • work
  • The original work found that an anti-malaria drug or the neurotransmitter GABA could increase the number of insulin-producing pancreatic cells in mice. (the-scientist.com)
  • donors
  • A new method stimulates B cells to make human antigen-specific antibodies, obviating the need for vaccinating blood donors or hunting for rare B cells. (the-scientist.com)
