Abstract

Selenium (Se) is an essential trace element of fundamental importance to health due to its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and chemopreventive properties attributed to its presence within at least 25 selenoproteins (Sel). Sel include but not limited to glutathione peroxidases (GPx1-GPx6)...read more

Gene Regulation, Differentiation & Reprogramming (Keystone)

This feed focuses on alterations of gene regulation during cell differentation and reprogramming processes. Here is the latest research on gene regulation in differentiation and reprogramming processes.

Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors

Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors occur in the gastrointestinal tract, often in the stomach or the small intestines. Here is the latest research on gastrointestinal stromal tumors.

Embryogenesis

Embryogenesis is the process by which the embryo forms and develops. It starts with the fertilization of the egg cell (ovum) by a sperm cell, (spermatozoon). Once fertilized, the ovum is referred to as a zygote, a single diploid cell. The zygote undergoes mitotic divisions with no significant growth (a process known as cleavage) and cellular differentiation, leading to development of a multicellular embryo

Cancer Metabolism

In order for cancer cells to maintain rapid, uncontrolled cell proliferation, they must acquire a source of energy. Cancer cells acquire metabolic energy from their surrounding environment and utilize the host cell nutrients to do so. Here is the latest research on cancer metabolism.
