Satake et al. provide a protocol to differentiate iPSCs into lubricin-expressing cells and demonstrate their potential use a therapy for arthritis and synovitis in an animal model.
Behrendsen et al. assess the biological activity the missense mutation D427H in the oncogenic transcription factor STAT3 and find that the mutated protein does not appear to have oncogenic potential beyond the WT transcription factor.
In this new Review Wang et al. describe recent insights into altered genome architecture in human cancer, highlighting multiple pathways that disrupt chromatin structure and contribute to tumorgenesis.
Aims and scope
BMC Molecular and Cell Biology, formerly known as BMC Cell Biology, is an open access journal that considers articles on all aspects of cellular and molecular biology in both eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells. The journal considers studies on functional cell biology, molecular mechanisms of transcription and translation, biochemistry, as well as research using both the experimental and theoretical aspects of physics to study biological processes and investigations into the structure of biological macromolecules.
High-resolution imaging and genomic technologies are changing the way we view the environment, cells, chromosomes and molecules. Here we share recent highlights from the BMC Series journals.
