Designer worm spit supercharges healing
Globally, every 30 seconds a diabetic has a limb amputated because of a non-healing wound. A molecule produced by a Thai liver parasite could be the solution to those non-healing wounds -- and scientists are now able to produce a version of the molecule on a large enough scale to make it available for laboratory tests and eventually clinical trials

New piece found in inflammatory disease puzzle
Inflammation is the process by which the body responds to injury or infection but when this process becomes out of control it can cause disease. Researchers have shed light on a key aspect of the process. Their findings may help guide the development of new treatments of inflammatory diseases such as atherosclerosis, which can lead to heart attack or stroke, and type 2 diabetes.

First comprehensive map of subcellular localization of proteins reveals new insights
The first analysis of how proteins are arranged in a cell was published today in Science, revealing that a large portion of human proteins can be found in more than one location in a given cell.

Branch-specific plasticity of a bifunctional dopamine circuit encodes protein hunger
Using fruit flies, Johns Hopkins researchers say they have identified a specific and very small set of brain cells—dubbed dopamine wedge neurons—responsible for driving the insects' food preferences toward what they need, rather than what they like.

Synthetic genes can make weird new proteins that actually work
Novel proteins, created from scratch with no particular design in mind, can sometimes do the work of a natural protein. The discovery may widen the toolkit of synthetic biologists trying to build bespoke organisms.

Scientists report inhibition of cellular aging
DGIST's research team have been conducting research to reverse the aging process by shifting the existing academia's 'irreversibility of aging' paradigm that suggests aging cannot be reversed. To reverse the aging process, the research team searched for factors that could control aging and sought substances that could restore cell division capacity.

Study points a way to better implantable medical devices
Researchers have identified a signaling molecule key to the formation of scar tissue surrounding implantable medical devices, a process called fibrosis. Blocking this molecule prevents scar tissue from forming and could help scientists extend the lifespan of many types of implantable medical devices.
