Effect of the Herbal Formulation HF1 on the Expression of PD-L1 in PC3 cells

Effect of the Herbal Formulation HF1 on the Expression of PD-L1 in PC3 cells

Imani et al. | Nov 15, 2019

In this study, Imani et al. investigate whether a new proprietary herbal formulation, HF1, can inhibit expression of immune suppressor protein PD-L1. PD-L1 is a transmembrane protein that can be expressed by cancer cells to assist in their ability to avoid attacks from the immune system....

Fluorescein or Green Fluorescent Protein: Is it possible to create a sensor for dehydration?

Fluorescein or Green Fluorescent Protein: Is it possible to create a sensor for dehydration?

Joshi et al. | Dec 09, 2019

Currently there is no early dehydration detection system using temperature and pH as indicators. A sensor could alert the wearer and others of low hydration levels, which would normally be difficult to catch prior to more serious complications resulting from dehydration. In this study, a protein...

Anonymity reduces generosity in high school students

Vargas-Guerrero et al. | Nov 25, 2019

The disinterested willingness a person has for helping others is known as altruism. But is this willingness to help others dependent on external factors that make you more or less inclined to be generous? We hypothesized that generosity in adolescents would depend on external factors and that...
