L-(+)-Lactic acid solution may be used in the preparation of novel pH-sensitive physically crosslinked hydrogels. It may be used in the preparation of low molecular weight poly(lactic acid) by direct polycondensation.

Caspases mediate apoptosis and have also been implicated in stem-cell biology. How caspases are linked to stem-cell biology is not known. Here, we show that the apoptotic blebs of cancer cells fuse together to form novel structures called 'blebbishields'. Blebbishields
Disruption of mitochondrial respiration in the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans can extend lifespan. We previously showed that long-lived respiratory mutants generate elevated amounts of α-ketoacids. These compounds are structurally related to α-ketoglutarate, suggesting they may be biologically relevant. Here, we show
Prolonged periods of tissue compression may lead to the development of pressure ulcers, some of which may originate in, for example, skeletal muscle tissue and progress underneath intact skin, representing deep tissue injury. Their etiology is multifactorial and the interaction
