This image shows photoreceptor neurons of the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster, with the photoreceptors visualized by phalloidin (green). The light-sensitive protein rhodopsin 1 (yellow) is aberrantly localized in the cytoplasm of those photoreceptors that have defective mitochondria (non-blue), while the normal photoreceptors are marked by RFP (blue).

Biomedical illustration of an oligodendrocyte repairing damaged myelin sheaths of a motor neuron. Such damage exposes nerve fibers and disrupts the ability of the nerve to carry messages. It is associated with diseases such as diabetes and multiple sclerosis.

A photograph shows a corner of Thomas Hunt Morgan’s fruit fly laboratory. There are bunches of bananas hanging from a rope above a table of fruit fly-containing flasks. A light microscope is seen sitting on a table on the far left side of the photograph. The wall on the left side behind the table with the fruit flies has one shelf with some black boxes with white labels, and the shelves above and below it are holding containers of various sizes and shapes. The wall on the right side has a…

By using a genetic tracing system, new research shows that extracellular vesicles, small membrane structures that can contain a multitude of different molecules, can transfer functional RNA directly from blood cells to neurons.

"The Glove", Stanford develops technology 'better than steroids' for athlete recovery. Stanford biologists stumbled upon a method of thermoregulation that could not only have a similar effect as steroids, but better.

Stanford is Building a Body-Cooling Glove that is Safer and More Effective than Using Steroids for Athletes. Stanford biologists have created a glove-like device that they say works “better than steroids” in terms improving athletic performance.

Transcription factors control where and when gene expression is switched on by binding to specific stretches of DNA. Here we used the sea squirt Ciona, a simple chordate, and analyzed how the transcription factor Brachyury ensures the appropriate deployment of its target genes at specific times during the sequential steps of notochord formation.
