Cannibal cells may limit cancer growth
New research led by scientists at the Babraham Institute, Cambridge reveals a link between cell cannibalism and cancer biology. Cell cannibalism occurs when one cell surrounds, kills and digests another. This latest research reveals that cannibalism can be triggered by cell division; when one cell divides to form two. Since uncontrolled cell division is a key hallmark of cancer, this suggests that cannibalism may have a role to play in resisting cancer. (2017-07-11)

But researchers reporting in the Cell Press journal Current Biology on Aug. 6 have discovered the first two species of frog, both living in Brazil, that are actually venomous. Not only do the frogs produce potent toxins, but they also have a mechanism to deliver those harmful secretions into another animal using bony spines on their heads. (2015-08-06)

Female mice are able to smell male pheromones only when ready to mate
An American study in mice reveals that hormones that dictate a female's attraction towards males do so in part by controlling her sense of smell. The findings, published June 4 in Cell, provide an example of how hormones may use the nose to circumvent the brain and influence behavior. (2015-06-04)

Surprise! This eukaryote completely lacks mitochondria
Mitochondria are membrane-bound components within cells that are often described as the cells' powerhouses. They've long been considered as essential components for life in eukaryotes, the group including plants, fungi, animals, and unicellular protists, if for no other reason than that every known eukaryote had them. But researchers reporting in the Cell Press journal Current Biology on May 12, 2016, challenges this notion. They've discovered a eukaryote that contains absolutely no trace of mitochondria at all.
