MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of noncoding small RNAs (sRNAs) that play many roles in plant growth, development, and the stress response. Recently, the Brassica napus (B. napus) genome was reported, which allows the genome-wide identification of miRNAs and their targets in B. napus cv. Westar and its transgenic cultivar. To investigate the expression of […]

A recent study led by researchers from Peking Union Medical College aimed to identify microRNAs (miRNAs) from bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs) in a rat model of steroid-induced osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONFH). Following identification of miRNAs using LC Sciences’ miRNA microarray service, investigators sought to elucidate the molecular mechanisms underlying steroid‑induced ONFH. […]

microRNAs (miRNAs) are endogenous non-coding small RNAs (sRNA) that play important regulatory functions in growth, development, and environmental stress response of eukaryotes. Currently, miRNA-sized sRNA (msRNAs) were discovered in several prokaryotes through deep sequencing. However, no data are available on whether these msRNAs exist in cyanobacteria and whether they regulate biological tolerance to salt stress. […]

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 […]

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 […]
