Live and let dye: Probes enabling immune cells to announce their success

■ Medicine / Live and let dye: Probes enabling immune cells to announce their success Yonsei biochemists develop a fluorescent probe capable of signaling immune-cell destruction of invading pathogens Among the many roles played by the human immune system, capturing and destroying invading bacterial pathogens is among the most important. However, the destruction of these pathogens results in production of molecules that can be harmful to cells and tissues. Moreover, the accumulation of these molecules can potentially result in the initiation of cardiovascular and inflammatory diseases. Researchers are continually engaged in the discovery of methods that enable the detection of such molecules in order to … Continue reading Live and let dye: Probes enabling immune cells to announce their successRead More →
