Gold-Coated Substrates & Surfaces in Nanotechnology

Nanotechnology is a rapidly growing area of research and development (R&D) focussing on materials and structures with sub-microscale dimensions. The nanoscale can be difficult to visualize given that is a couple of orders of magnitude below anything that is visible with the human eye.

Cell Migration, Cell Invasion & Wound Healing Explained

Cell migration is an extremely complex phenomenon. A motile single cell, or multicell aggregate, that penetrates through the extracellular matrix of neighboring tissues can be described as invasive. Cells grouped into coherent sheets, strands, or tubes may undergo a form of collective cell migration governed by tight intercellular connections. The former mechanism is characteristic of metastatic growth, while the latter is associated with wound healing. How can seemingly similar cellular mechanisms result in such dramatically different outcomes?

Lu et al. from UC San Diego found SARS-CoV-2 N-protein undergoes phase separation with the M-protein and RNA, and that this behavior is likely involved in viral RNA packaging during virion development. https://lnkd.in/d7eNYKr
