The maintenance of genomic integrity in response to DNA damage relies on the intricate coordination of DNA repair, cell cycle progression, transcriptional and post-transcriptional regulation and apoptosis. The DNA damage response pathways play a critical role in human health, as failure at any of these steps could lead to cancer and other diseases.
In a collection of reviews published in Cell & Bioscience today, guest edited by Dr Guo-Min Li, we attempt to define the most challenging questions concerning DNA damage response and repair, and to provide an overview of the latest advances in the field.
This is one of a number of exciting special issues to be published in Cell & …
Cell & Bioscience announces the establishment of the Ming K. Jeang Award for Excellence in Cell & Bioscience. The Award, consisting of $500 cash and a certificate, is funded by a generous donation from the Ming K. Jeang Foundation and intends to honor outstanding research papers published in Cell & Bioscience. All research articles published in Cell & Bioscience are qualified for consideration and a committee of editors will select two research articles published in the preceding year in Cell & Bioscience to receive the award.
The Awards will recognize four Chinese investigators on the basis of significant contributions in Basic and Translational Cancer Research.
The Awards will be presented in a ceremony during the Chinese Anti-Cancer Association biannual meeting to be held in Beijing, China, September 7-9, 2012.
Candidacy is open to all junior Chinese researchers who were trained in US and subsequently returned to China during the last two years, and are currently active in cancer research
in China. Selection of the award winners will be made on the basis of the candidate’s meritorious achievements in cancer research both during training in US and after returning to China. …
In an effort to promote transparency and reproducibility in research, Cell & Bioscience has joined a growing number of BioMed Central journals aiming to increase the availability of supporting data.
We have introduced a new standard article section for research articles and short reports, ‘Availability of supporting data’, in which authors are encouraged to deposit the data set(s) supporting the results reported in submitted manuscripts in a publicly-accessible data repository, when it is not possible to publish them as additional files.
This optional section has been introduced with the aim of allowing authors to more easily indicate where and how the data supporting the results of their research can be found online, providing a better link between journal articles and underlying …
Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC) is an autosomal dominant disorder, caused by mutation in one of the tumor-suppressor genes, TSC1 or TSC2. The condition is characterized by the formation of multiple non-malignant tumours throughout the brain and other vital organs of the body, and is prevalent in nearly one million people worldwide, with symptoms ranging from mild skin abnormalities to uncontrollable seizures and kidney failure.
In the latest research published in Cell & Bioscience, Jiang et al. demonstrate that the growth and cell proliferation of TSC-related tumors can be inhibited by 2-deoxyglucose (2-DG), which restricts glucose metabolism. In stark contrast, a “carb-free” diet fails to prove effective in reducing tumor growth and leads to increased tumor size.
We are happy to share the excellent news that in less than 6 months since its official launch, Cell & Bioscience has been accepted for indexing in Scopus and PubMed. We look forward to the journal making further progress.
