MIT scholar Hillary Andales, ipaliliwanag kung bakit mahalaga ang Pinoy microsatellites

Posted by in category: alien life

Bago pa pirmahan ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte ang batas na bubuo sa isang national space agency, may Pinoy microsatellites nang lumilipad sa outer space. Ano kaya ang ginagawa nila sa kalawakan? Naghahanap ng aliens, black holes, o bagong planeta? Ipakikilala sa atin ni Hillary Andales sina Diwata 1 at Diwata 2, ang kauna-unahang Pinoy microsatellites.

CRISPR enters its first human clinical trials

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, genetics

CUTTING ROOM Scientists will soon wield the molecular scissors CRISPR/Cas9 in the human body. Some people with a form of inherited blindness will have the gene editor injected into their eyes, where researchers hope it will snip out a mutation.

BIG GULP Gravitational waves may have revealed a black hole in the process of swallowing up a neutron star (illustrated). If confirmed, the event would be the first of its kind ever seen.

Newly discovered organ may be lurking under your skin

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, neuroscience

Most people who’ve been jabbed by a needle know the drill: First the pierce, then the sharp, searing pain and an urge to pull away, or at least wince. While the exact circuitry behind this nearly universal reaction is not fully understood, scientists may have just found an important piece of the puzzle: a previously unknown sensory organ inside the skin.

Dubbed the nociceptive glio-neural complex, this structure is not quite like the typical picture of a complex organ like the heart or the spleen. Instead, it’s a simple organ made up of a network of cells called glial cells, which are already known to surround and support the body’s nerve cells. In this case, the glial cells form a mesh-like structure between the skin’s outer and inner layers, with filament-like protrusions that extend into the skin’s outer layer. (Also find out about a type of simple organ recently found in humans, called the interstitium.)

As the study team reports today in the journal Science, this humble organ seems to play a key role in the perception of mechanical pain—discomfort caused by pressure, pricking, and other impacts to the skin. Until now, individual cells called nociceptive fibers were thought to be the main starting points for this kind of pain.

Tweaking Gut Bacteria in Mice Reduces Colorectal Cancer Risk

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

Today, we want to highlight a recent study in which a team of researchers from UT Southwestern demonstrates how adjusting the gut microbiome in mice lowers the occurrence of cancer.

What is the gut microbiome?

The microbiome describes a varied community of bacteria, archaea, eukarya, and viruses that inhabit our gut. The four bacterial phyla of Firmicutes, Bacteroidetes, Proteobacteria, and Actinobacteria make up around 98% of the intestinal microbiome.
