Rapid information transfer is vital for the inner workings of body tissues. With computer simulations, researchers from Colombia and Germany found that mechanical pulses travel through membranes for biologically relevant distances at the speed of sound. The researchers think that membranes could serve as a tin can telephone for the cell. READ MORE

Plant researchers study gene which – if out of control – can contribute to cancer spread Two such different organisms as plants and humans developed from a common precursor cell. Traces of this over one-billion-year kinship remain anchored in the genetic material of both organisms. An international team of plant researchers led by Dr Markus Wirtz and Prof. Dr Rüdiger Hell of Heidelberg University has looked more closely into one such trace – the TOR protein. In human and animal cells, TOR acts as a signal generator that controls both survival and cell growth. The Heidelberg researchers have now discovered how this protein also functions as a growth regulator in plants. READ MORE

HeiNEC2 is the second international conference of SFB 1134 ('Functional Ensembles'). The unifying theme of the SFB as well as the conference is the formation and plasticity of activity patterns in neuronal networks. Assemblies of co-active neurons are a major topic at the interface between cellular and systems neuroscience. The meeting will unite leading scientists who introduce the most advanced experimental and theoretical approaches in the field. READ MORE

Studying molecular mechanisms of chronic pain has been an important focus of pain research. However, the nature and plasticity of neural circuits that mediate the sensory and emotional components of pain are still enigmatic. This conference organized by CellNetworks members Prof. Dr. Rohini Kuner and Prof. Dr. Herta Flor (Heidelberg Pain Consortium) will focus on interrogating, discussing and debating structural and functional understanding of circuits and networks underlying sensory and affective components of pain and their modulation by circumstances which induce structural reorganization and functional plasticity, including disease states, negative emotions and stress.

There are various concepts about how blood cells develop. However, they are based almost exclusively on experiments that solely reflect snapshots. In a publication in Nature, scientists from the German Cancer Research Center in Heidelberg now present a novel technique that captures the process in a dynamic way. Using a "random generator", the researchers label hematopoietic stem cells with genetic barcodes that enable them to trace which cell types arise from the stem cell. This method will facilitate whole new insights into the development of various tissues as well as cancer. READ MORE
