The discovery shows that Schwann cells are able to produce myelin

image credits: CC0 Public Domain Scientists have discovered that a particular cell type is much more productive in creating a protective covering that covers nerve fibers than previously thought. The disclosure of Schwann cells opens up the possibility of finding new ways of treating nerve injuries and various forms of neuropathy. Further research may prove useful in promoting myelin repair …

Researchers use embryonic stem cells to create live model embryos for research: Shots

Researchers developed a structure of embryonic stem cells that mimics the earliest stages of human womb development. This image shows the structure breaking through the symmetry of the sphere, creating more complex structures that eventually develop into a fetus.

Third-hand smoke can damage epithelial cells in the airways by straining cells and causing them to survive, a research team from the University of California at Riverside has found. The finding may help physicians treat patients who are exposed to …

Tesla quietly develops its own EV battery cells

It is not difficult to guess the reasons for this step. With internal cells, Tesla has been able to optimize its battery packs for cars, whether it's a longer range, faster acceleration or more sustainable performance. This could also lead to cost reductions by eliminating intermediaries such as Panasonic, making $ 25,000 more viable. In addition, this could provide resilience …

Next generation solar cells are turning in a new direction: Phosphorene promises efficiency

Credit: CC0 Public Domain A phosphorus-derived nanomaterial known as phosphorus is becoming a key component for more sustainable and efficient next-generation perovskite solar cells. PSCs, which are one of the fastest growing new solar technologies and can achieve efficiencies comparable to the commonly available silicon solar cells. Flinders University has very thin phosphorus nanosheets for low-temperature PSCs using the high …

Frustrated fish give up thanks to Glia, not just nerve cells

In a virtual reality tank, scientists were able to make zebrafish not to swim even though they paddled hard. This picture shows the experimental set-up – electrodes inserted into the fish larvae measured the behavior of the brain cells in the virtual reality tank. Picture credits: Ahrens Lab / Janelia Research Campus The frustrated zebrafish held in a virtual reality …

New core-shell catalyst for ethanol fuel cells

A close-up of the platinum / iridium shell (green / blue) over a gold nanoparticle core (yellow) shows how this catalyst degrades carbon-carbon (gray ) cleaves in ethanol, whereby initially hydrogen atoms remain bound. The hydrogen protects the carbon in the early stages of the reaction and prevents the formation of catalyst-poisoned carbon monoxide that allows for complete oxidation and …
