A peptide derived from the hepatocyte growth factor kringle 1 domain displays anti-angiogenic activity in HUVEC cells and effectively inhibits VEGF-induced corneal angiogenesis in a mouse model of corneal neovascularization.
GADD153 transcription factor sensitizes cells to reactive oxygen species (ROS) through mechanisms that involve up-regulation of BAK and enhanced oxidant injury in neuroblastoma cells.
Direct interaction of rapamycin (mTOR) with both Ras homologue enriched in brain (RheB) and regulatory associate protein of mTOR (raptor) identified in living cells using Fluorescence resonance energy transfer–fluorescence lifetime imaging (FRET-FLIM).
Complementation of vinculin in vinculin-deficient cells, shRNA-mediated knock-down and overexpression in different cell types suggests that vinculin may be insignificant for integrin-mediated internalization of Staphylococcus aureus.

BMC Cell Biology is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on all aspects of the biology of cells, including organelles and cellular compartments, trafficking and turnover, signaling, motility, adhesion, cell division, differentiation and programmed cell death.
It is journal policy to publish work deemed by peer reviewers to be a coherent and sound addition to scientific knowledge and to put less emphasis on interest levels, provided that the research constitutes a useful contribution to the field.
