Reducing calorie consumption by eating less could slow the aging process at a cellular level.
The study, published in the journal Physical Review, revealed that both have cells resembling helical "multistory parking garages."
Wolbachia has combination of genes, which includes DNA from black widow spider.
A Japanese scientist, who meticulously studied yeast cells to understand how cells degrade and renew itself, has won the 2016 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine. Meet Yoshinori Oshumi, the man who discovered a process called authophagy that cannabilizes and recycles cells.
A new study suggests that viruses are more dangerous if the infection occurs in the early hours of the day.
HIV is known to damage the immune system leading the body defenseless against other types of infections and infection-related cancers, but a new research reveals the HIV infections can also make cells to age faster leading to higher mortality risks.
Researchers are getting closer to making artificial personalized organs as they succeeded in developing an artificial skin--complete with real skin functions, such as hair growth, sweat production and protective oil secretion.
Scientists explain how Brazilian wasp venom targets cancer cells, while leaving normal cells unharmed. With future analysis, this could have applications in medicine.
Scientists have discovered a single gene that can turn colorectal cancer cells back into normal tissue in mice, according to a new study.
Cancer is infamous for being both difficult to detect and treat. That's largely because, unlike other diseases, tumors are not made up of an invading party. Instead, cancer is all about cells in the human body going rogue. Now researchers have highlighted a new way in which to assess why cancerous cells break nature's rules - a perspective that could help them think up new ways to keep diseases in check.
Scientists have captured the first detailed microscopy images of what may be the smallest bacteria on Earth, according to a new study.
An international team of scientists has successfully grown leg muscle in a lab dish, leading the way to possible treatments for a large number of muscle disorders, according to a new study.
Scientists have created precursor egg and sperm cells in a lab, shedding light on human development, a new study says.
A powerful new microscope developed by a team of more than 30 scientists is showing cellular life in a new light, recording the activity of living cells, molecules, and embryos in 3D and in real-time, a new study says.
