Stem cells and cancer cells have enough molecular similarities that the former can be used to trigger immunity against the latter.
Fungal pathways in cheese rinds affect the composition of bacterial communities residing there.
January 25, 2018|
BENJAMIN WOLFEThe cheese rind bacteria Serratia proteamaculans follow physical networks—microscopic “highways” created by filamentous fungi—to swim in the liquid layers on the fungal branches. This interaction could play a major role in shaping the composition of microbiomes, researchers say.
