The article highlights several research. Gerry and her colleagues shows that when a neighboring cell rips away the exposed part of Notch, it leaves the remaining portion vulnerable to degradation by proteases. Another study reveals that mice may have a backup system for producing sperm. The study by Arjun Yodh and his colleagues shows that carbon nanotubes can be made into aerogel, a low-density material.
