Scientists Find Evidence Of A Protein That Existed When Life Began

 

Researchers have designed a synthetic small protein that wraps around a metal core composed of iron and sulfur. This protein can be repeatedly charged and discharged, allowing it to shuttle electrons within a cell. Such peptides may have existed at the dawn of life, moving electrons in early metabolic cycles.

How did life arise on Earth? Rutgers researchers have found among the first and perhaps only hard evidence that simple protein catalysts – essential for cells, the building blocks of life, to function – may have existed when life began.

Scientists Discover How Microenvironments Regulate Stem Cell Development

 

Researchers from the UCLA Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research and Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center have discovered an important distinction in how blood-forming stem cells are supported by their microenvironments during rest and after injury.

The body appears to switch the type of cell that produces a single growth factor during healthy times and during stress or injury — for instance, radiation treatment for cancer. The results could have implications for treating cancer, when people’s blood-forming stem cells may be substantially depleted, and for people undergoing certain types of transplants.
