Zn-InsP6 complex can enhance excretion of radioactive strontium from the body

There is a hypothesis that M-InsP6 could enhance elimination of radiostrontium. M-InsP6 may bind radiostrontium, inhibit absorption, and enhance excretion.

Novel microscopy technique developed to analyze cellular focal adhesion dynamics

Focal adhesions are large specialized proteins that are located in the area where a cell membrane meets the extracellular matrix (ECM), a collection of molecules surrounding the cells that provide support and regulate micromechanical signals to the cells. Examining focal adhesions is one of the key elements to understanding how a cell proliferates, differentiates, and […]
