A 3D cell shape that enables tube formation

Sep 11, 2018

New modelling and in vivo observations reveal that cells in tubes adopt an asymmetric cell shape dubbed scutoid, contrary to some previous assumptions

How flat sheets of cells become tubular organs

Aug 07, 2018

New research by Guy Blanchard in collaboration with the LMB Cell Biology Division gives new insight into how flat layers of cell tissue develop into 3D structures

Rapid Cue-Specific Remodeling of the Nascent Axonal Proteome

Aug 07, 2018

The Holt lab at PDN has developed a new method to identify newly synthesized axonal proteins in response to axon guidance cues. Axons stimulated by different guidance cues show distinct and common signatures.

PDN scientists generate key life event in artificial mouse ‘embryo’ created from stem cells

Jul 25, 2018

The creation of artificial embryos has moved a step forward after an international team lead by Magda Zernicka-Goetz used mouse stem cells to produce artificial embryo-like structures capable of ‘gastrulation’, a key step in the life of any embryo
