- Two-step mechanism of inner ear tip link regrowth
Scientist have found an unexpected two-step process that happens during the growth and regeneration of inner ear tip links in mice. Tip links are extracellular tethers that link stereocilia, the tiny sensory projections on inner ear hair cells that convert sound into electrical signals, and play a key role in hearing. The discovery offers a possible mechanism for potential interventions that ...

- New details of natural anticancer mechanism uncovered
Scientists have identified key triggers of an important cancer-blocking mechanism in cells. Termed “oncogene-induced senescence,” this mechanism can block most cancer types and is commonly experienced when incipient skin cancers turn instead into slow-growing moles.
