Other news include articles on why a bit of stress can be protective for your cells; the existence of spleen neutrophils; how the fate of embryonic stem cells is controlled; new targets against Duchenne dystrophy; and the discovery of new anti-angiogenic compounds. Also, how does temperature control sex? And what are the pros and cons of patenting?
