This is what could happen if all endangered regulations that help in the fight against harmful ozone go away.

Bacteria behind acute periodontitis. Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans most often lives peacefully in the mouth until circumstances lead it to become infectious. It forms flower-like colonies, here under a microscope sporting a colorful stain added by a researcher. Aa is gram-negative. Credit: Derren Ready (2012) CIL:38942, CIL.

In a vile three watery solutions phase separate into three layers. In membraneless organelles, chemical reactions occur at the interfaces of such layers, processing a reactant step-by-step and moving the reaction product from one layer to the next. Credit: Georgia Tech / Rob Felt

Just tiny puddles. That's what some of our cells' organelles are, and this synthetic organelle, engineered in the lab, shows how they can work.

Georgia tech researchers obtain benchmark data for the impact of spatial arrangement in bacterial signaling in a cystic fibrosis model.

Tiny cancer signals of the glycoprotein sort evade detection, but they'll have a hard time dodging the new "chemical octopus."

 

Hydrogel delivered stem cells called muscle satellite cells integrate to form new muscle strands, in green, along with existing muscle tissue, in red. Yellow strands may descend from existing muscle cells and from delivered MuSCs.

Elderly accident victims and Duchene muscular dystrophy sufferers could someday benefit from this stem cell hydrogel successfully tested in mice.
