Cause of large slip of plate-boundary fault during the 2011 Tohoku-Oki earthquake clarified


Location is everything for plant cell differentiation

Researchers from Osaka University find that the location of proteins within a cell as well as the position of the cell itself are important for determining cell type in model plant Arabidopsis thaliana

During development, plant cell differentiation is guided by location rather than lineage. Now, researchers from Osaka University have shown that the a...

Keeping Chromosomes in Check: A New Role for Heterochromatin

A team led by researchers at Osaka University finds that extra-tight packaging of genomic material helps prevent large chromosomal rearrangements that can lead to cancer

Large changes in the structure of chromosomes are usually fatal for the cell or can lead to genetic diseases such as cancer. Many large chromosomal re...
