This feed focuses on biomimetrics, synthetic biology and bio- and tissue-engineering approaches used for modeling human diseases.
ATP synthases are enzymes located in the inner mitochondrial membrane that catalyze the synthesis of ATP during cellular respiration. Discover the latest research on ATP synthases here.
Single-cell RNA sequencing of the adult human kidney transcriptome can provide molecular information about cell-specific responses to environmental variables and disease states. This information can provide a dataset to benchmark human kidney organoids. Discover the latest research on adult kidney organoids at single cell resolution here.
Total artificial hearts (TAH) and ventricular assist devices (VADs) provide cardiac support for patients with end-stage heart disease and have significantly improved the survival of these patients. Discover the latest research on Artificial Heart and Ventricular Assist Devices here.
Advances in biomaterial engineering have permitted the development of sophisticated drug-releasing materials with a biomimetic 3D support that allow a better control of the microenvironment of transplanted cells. Here is the latest research.
Biomechanics examines the generation of internal forces within the body and investigates the effects and control of forces that act on or are produced on tissues. Here are the latest discoveries.
This feed focuses on broad characteristics of the CRISPR system and the proteins associated with it.
Biosensor development and applications describe recent progress in biosensor development and their applications in the field of antibiotics and metabolic engineering. Discover the latest research on biosensor development and applications in this feed.
Biosyntheic transformtions are multi-step, enzyme-catalyzed processes where substrates are converted into more complex products in living organisms. Simple compounds are modified, converted into other compounds, or joined together to form macromolecules. Discover the latest research on biosynthetic transformations here.
Brain organoids are used to represent an in vitro model of the human brain. These brain organoids are derived from three-dimensional human pluripotent stem cells and can be used to help study brain biology, early brain development and different brain diseases. Discover the latest research on brain organoids in disease modeling here.
Over 1700 different mutations in the CFTR genes have been shown to cause cystic fibrosis. Here is the latest research on structural therapy for CFTR mutants.
