Cell Biology is the branch of science that studies cells at the microscopic or at the molecular level. It includes studying the cells’ physiological properties, structures, organelles, interactions with their environment, life cycle, division and apoptosis.

Continued Folic Acid Supplementation Throughout Pregnancy, May Cause Colorectal Cancer In The Future
An article about folic acid supplementation during pregnancy may lead to colorectal cancer as recent studies found
Researchers from Brown University and McGill University have discovered that the natural killer, or NK cells, help prevent T cells from over-responding when a virus hits.
Scientists report that a novel transcription factor can replace one of the classical reprogramming factors, Oct4, to significantly increase the efficiency of reprogramming differentiated stem cells into induced pluripotent stem cells.
Scientists used to think most of the exchange of information between cells was conducted at the surface, where cell receptors receive signals from other cells.
If you want to know how a cell responds to a particular chemical, the experiment is simple: Inject it with that chemical.
Researchers has discovered a previously unknown feature that distinguishes cancer from normal cells: the difference in cell surface properties.
A process that limits the number of times a cell divides works much differently than had been thought, opening the door to potential new anticancer therapies
Understanding how aged and damaged mother cells manage to form new and undamaged daughter cells is one of the toughest riddles of ageing, but scientists now know how yeast cells do it.
Cells are not static. They can transform themselves over time -- but change can have dangerous implications.
Driving Miranda, a protein in fruit flies crucial to switch a stem cell's fate, is not as complex as biologists thought, according to University of Oregon biochemists.
KRas is one of the usual suspects in cancer.
Bacteria have always been considered to act independently of a population. Until recently, cell-to-cell communication was never thought plausible in simple prokaryotes.
Scientists in New York and North Carolina are reporting assembly of the first functioning prototype of an artificial Golgi organelle.
This article discusses the peptide bond in the primary amino acid structure, secondary structure as the alpha helix and the beta pleated sheet and tertiary structure involving ionic bonds, hydrogen bonds and hydrophilic & hydrophobic interactions.
In this review, current studies/knowledge about peripheral blood-derived multipotent mesenchymal stromal cells is summarized, and the above-mentioned topics are discussed.
Cells die. It's a normal part of development and of aging.
A Swedish research group has discovered a new mechanism for cell division in a microorganism found in extremely hot and acidic conditions.
Researchers at the University of Minnesota have identified the protein responsible for disassembly of donor nucleoli in the context of nuclear cloning.
All cells are surrounded by protective, fatty membranes.
Cells are intrinsically artistic. When the right signals tell a cell to divide, it usually splits down the middle, resulting in two identical daughter cells.
