To understand human cells, scientists look beyond genes

To understand human cells, scientists look beyond genes

A new study, published recently in Cell Systems and featured on the journal’s cover, takes a deep dive into detailed images of human heart cells and uncovers a disconnect between gene expression and cell structure. The study was also highlighted in a special Cell Systems editorial for the journal’s 5th anniversary.

New cell lines and plasmids

New cell lines and plasmids

Three new cell lines are available in the Allen Cell Collection: two single edited, nuclear lines in which DNA replication foci (with mEGFP-tagged PCNA) or CTCF-binding sites (via mEGFP-tagged CTCF) are visualized; and one dual edited cell line labeling mitochondria (via mEGFP-tagged Tom20) and microtubules (via mTagRFP-T-tagged alpha-tubulin). Donor plasmids for all lines are also available from Addgene.
