Barbara's Cell - Under the Microscope
Under the Microscope began with a Google image search of the word Cell. There were soooo many images of human, animal, plant and I can't remember what else! I used my memory to create these not so real cells. I began cutting batting shapes for each cell followed by playing with fabrics that reminded me of the cell images. All the fabrics are raw edge (no fusible) and stitched by hand with # 8 perle cotton through the batting circle shape only. I had help from my husband and daughter to…

Cell vs. virus: A battle for health - Shannon Stiles
All living things are made of cells. In the human body, these highly efficient units are protected by layer upon layer of defense against icky invaders like the cold virus. Shannon Stiles takes a journey into the cell, introducing the microscopic arsenal of weapons and warriors that play a role in

Maternal age-dependent APC/C-mediated decrease in securin causes premature sister chromatid separation in meiosis II
Sister chromatid cohesion during meiosis II (MII), maintained by securin-mediated inhibition of separase, is reduced in aged mouse oocytes. Here the authors show that, in MII oocytes, securin levels are reduced by increased destruction by the anaphase promoting complex/cyclosome.
