    Many exciting discoveries reported over the past 3 years have caused us to expand the paradigm for understanding somatic stem cell plasticity. Within adult organs, there are not only specific stem cells that are capable of producing functional cells of one organ system, but also cells with the...

  • Tumour-cell invasion and migration: diversity and escape mechanisms. Friedl, Peter; Wolf, Katarina // Nature Reviews Cancer;May2003, Vol. 3 Issue 5, p362 

    Cancer cells possess a broad spectrum of migration and invasion mechanisms. These include both individual and collective cell-migration strategies. Cancer therapeutics that are designed to target adhesion receptors or proteases have not proven to be effective in slowing tumour progression in...

    Abstract. Mean firing rates (MFRs), with analogue values, have thus far been used as information carriers of neurons in most brain theories of learning. However, the neurons transmit the signal by spikes, which are discrete events. The climbing fibers (CFs), which are known to be essential for...

  • Fast adaptation of mechanoelectrical transducer channels in mammalian cochlear hair cells. Kennedy, Helen J; Evans, Michael G; Crawford, Andrew C; Fettiplace, Robert // Nature Neuroscience;Aug2003, Vol. 6 Issue 8, p832 

    Outer hair cells are centrally involved in the amplification and frequency tuning of the mammalian cochlea, but evidence about their transducing properties in animals with fully developed hearing is lacking. Here we describe measurements of mechanoelectrical transducer currents in outer hair...

  • Opinion: Diverse cellular and molecular mechanisms contribute to epithelial plasticity and metastasis. Grünert, Stefan; Jechlinger, Martin; Beug, Hartmut // Nature Reviews Molecular Cell Biology;Aug2003, Vol. 4 Issue 8, p657 

    In contrast to the aberrant control of proliferation, apoptosis, angiogenesis and lifespan, the cellular mechanisms that cause local invasion and metastasis of tumour cells are still poorly understood. New experimental approaches have identified different types of epithelial-plasticity changes...

    Background: Prokaryotic microorganisms are able to survive and proliferate in severe environmental conditions. The increasing number of complete sequences of prokaryotic genomes has provided the basis for studying the molecular mechanisms of their adaptation at the genomic level. We apply here a...
