Sleeping cells' survival instincts: A double-edged sword?

(Drexel University) By creating a new experimental model to study quiescent -- or 'sleeping' -- human cells, Drexel University researchers found that, when energetically stressed, the cells showed a signaling profile previously associated with inflammation.
