biosights: May 12, 2014 - Phosphoinositides get cells in shape

submitted by: JCB
Early Drosophila embryos undergo 13 rounds of rapid nuclear division before enclosing each nucleus into an individual, membrane-bound cell. Reversi et al. describe how the phosphoinositides PI(4,5)P2 and PI(3,4,5)P3 control the resulting cell shapes by coordinating actomyosin contractility with plasma membrane expansion. This biosights episode presents the paper by Reversi et al. from the May 12, 2014, issue of The Journal of Cell Biology and includes an interview with senior author Stefano...

Making Muscle: Tissue Engineering in MUSC's Department of Surgery

submitted by: mcgheek
Samir Fakhry, M.D., Chief of MUSC's Division of General Surgery, and Michael Yost, PhD, Associate Chair of Research in MUSC's Department of Surgery, discuss the promise of engineered tissues for the treatment of surgical and trauma patients. Engineered tissue can instruct the body to regenerate native tissue instead of generating scar, improving cosmetic and functional outcomes. Bioprinters, 3D printers for living tissue, will help realize the promise of engineered tissue for clinical care.k
