When does the future start with regards to the ocean? Rising sea levels, ocean acidification, and overfishing are problems that the ocean faces right now. An ocean full of jellyfish is a probable future. Jellyfish can be very beautiful with their movements and bioluminescence and have an interesting life cycle.
Gibberellic acid (GA3) is a plant hormone that was first isolated from the fungus Gibberella in Japan in the 1930s. It was found to promote plant growth activity. Gibberellic acid has since been isolated from a variety of different plant types, ranging from beans to tobacco.
Well-built seawalls have long been used as an inexpensive way to control coastal erosion. Seawalls are associated with reduced aesthetic value, and increased erosion at the ends and in front of the seawall.
Osteoinduction of Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells by Bioactive Composite Scaffolds without Supplemental Osteogenic Growth Factors
Regenerative medicine aims to repair and replace lost or damaged tissues by initiating the natural regeneration process. Current paradigms in tissue engineering often involve the combination of mesenchymal stem/progenitor cells and the synthesis of novel biomaterials, tailoring physical, chemical and structural properties to mimic crucial aspects of the physiological niche
Epithelial cells lining the intestinal tract serve important and evolutionarily conserved functions in animal physiology. The intestinal epithelium is the primary site for absorption and metabolism of diverse dietary nutrients and xenobiotics, relays metabolic and immunological signals to the rest of the body, and provides a critical barrier to microorganisms that reside within the intestinal lumen
