collaborate
A collaboration between LC Sciences, a leading developer of genomics and proteomics technologies, and n3D Biosciences has yielded a validated spheroid toxicity assay based on n3D’s proprietary magnetic 3D bioprinting technology. The new assay represents a simple, biologically relevant, and label-free drug toxicity assay that more closely mimics in vivo conditions than assays performed in […]

MSCT feat
Mesenchymal stem cell transplantation (MSCT) has been used to treat human diseases, but the detailed mechanisms underlying its success are not fully understood. In a study conducted by a team of scientists led by researchers from University of Pennsylvania, they show that MSCT rescues bone marrow MSC (BMMSC) function and ameliorates osteopenia in Fas-deficient-MRL/lpr mice. Mechanistically, […]

An ongoing challenge in biomedical research is the search for simple, yet robust assays using 3D cellcultures for toxicity screening. A recent study by researchers from Nano3D Biosciences (n3D) addresses that challenge with a novel spheroid assay, wherein spheroids, formed by magnetic 3D bioprinting, contract immediately as cells rearrange and compact the spheroid in relation to viability and […]

The viral-induced banana bunchy top disease and the fungal-induced banana blight are two major causes of concern for industrial scale production of bananas. Banana blight is particularly troublesome, affecting ∼80% of crops worldwide. Strict guidelines and protocols are in place in order to ameliorate the effects of this devastating disease, yet little success has been […]

Immune activation and chronic inflammation are hallmark features of HIV infection causing T-cell depletion and cellular immune dysfunction in AIDS. In a recent study led by researchers from University of Naples, researchers addressed the issue of whether HIV-1 Tat could affect T cell development and acute inflammatory response by generating a transgenic mouse expressing Tat […]

  CTD upregulates the expression of PTEN and p21. MCF-7 cells were transfected with 100 nM negative Ctrl inhibitor and 106b I. miR-106b levels were analyzed by (A) reverse transcription-quantitative polymerase chain reaction and (B) western blotting 48 h after transfection. CTD upregulated the expression of PTEN and p-21 proteins. *P<0.01 vs. MCF-7 cells. miR, […]
