J. Cell Tissue Research  Vol. 17(1), 2017


It is 17th year of the publication of Journal of Cell and Tissue Research (JCTR) and simultaneously 17th Vol (issue 1) is being forwarded to all the readers. During this long duration the journal has published more than 6000 pages of the articles of well known scientists of India and abroad. In past the journal is foreword by 8 Nobel prize winners and Directors General of Indian Council of Medical Research, (ICMR), New Delhi, India and Council of Scientific and Industrial Research, New Delhi, India (CSIR), as well as The Secretaries of Department of Biotechnology and Chairman, University Grants Commission (UGC), New Delhi, India. Now Journal is included in UGC approved Journal list (No.19572). This certainly makes the journal among top journals published from India. Its International character is indicated simply by attracting papers from different countries including advance countries such as Japan, Germany, Canada and USA etc. More so the members of the editorial board also come from various countries.
 
I am happy to announce that the review article “Heat waves in non-conventional areas, climate change and disease load” (Authored by Maria Bettencourt Pires, New University of Lisbon, Portugal, Vilemar Magalhaes, Easy Way Intercâmbios, Brazil and P D Gupta Manipal University, India; three authors from three different continents) published in the Journal of Cell and Tissue Research 16(2): 5705-5711 (2016) become a classical paper (Please see Researchgate, https://www.researchgate.net). Up to now 11 952 Reads, 370 comments, 42 Recommendations (updated up to weekeding 5 March,2917 ).
 
I personally advise to all authors of this journal, please always go to the site of Research gate (Please see Researchgate, https://www.researchgate.net), check the citation of your paper, keep in your record as well as write to editor-in-chief, so that it may be highlighted in Editorials.

J. Cell Tissue Research  Vol. 16(2), 2017

Journal of Cell and Tissue Research (JCTR) provides platform to researchers to publish their work in an International Peer’s reviewed Journal. JCTR publishes high standard  research papers, review papers and time to time special features such as, case studies, point of view, achievements of leading Scientist etc.   Several last issue of the JCTR were forwarded  by Noble Laureates, namely, Prof. De Duve Christian, Noble Laureate in Physiology or Medicine, 1974; Prof. Ernst Richard, R., Noble Laureate in Chemistry, 1991; Prof. Zinkermagel Rolf, M., Noble Laureate in Physiology or Medicine, 1996; Prof. Wilczek Frank, Noble Laureate in Physics, 2004; Prof. Kroto Harold, Noble Laureate in Chemistry, 1991; Prof. Huber Robert, Noble Laureate in Chemistry, 1988; Prof. Deisenhofer Johann, Noble Laureate in Chemistry, 1988 and Prof. Raymond Wegmann, Founder CMB Society, Paris. In addition to this, journal was also foreword by country’s top scientists viz., Prof. N.K. Ganguly, Director General, ICMR, New Delhi; Prof. R.A. Mashelker, Director General, C.S.I.R., New Delhi; Prof. M.K., Bhan, Secretary, Department of Biotechnology, New Delhi. Prof. Arun  Nivedkar Secretary, UGC, New Delhi and Dr. W. Selvamurthy,  Chief Controller R. & D. Defence Organization, New Delhi. The journal has NASS factor 4.3. All the data certainly indicate the quality of journal.

Nobel Laureate G E Palade (1974) said that no cell organelle is free floating in the cell soup, all are interacting with each other by the membrane net work. Long back it was shown that membrane bound enzyme succinic dehydrogenase, the enzyme bound to the inner membrane of mitochondria is synthesized under the cooperation of nuclear with mitochondrial genome. It is understandable that the products of mitochondrial genome can migrate from mitochondrial matrix to the mitochondrial inner membrane but how the nuclear genome products can cross the outer mitochondrial membrane and come and sit on the inner membrane? There ought to be the connexion between the outer mitochondrial membrane and endoplasmic reticulum, and it is there. With the Lanthanum tracer technique it was shown that colloidal lanthanum can pass through the connexion between plasma membrane and endoplasmic reticulum and trace up to outer mitochondrial membrane. Recently a brilliant experiment was performed by researchers Lee & Tyler ( Physiology: Stressed-out chromatin promotes longevity (Nature 534, 625–626, 30 June 2016) which reveal that early-life malfunction in organelles called mitochondria brings about lasting changes in how DNA is packaged. The data suggest that interactions between the nuclear and the mitochondrial genomes can influence aging in eukaryotes. In their study, the researchers bred strains of mice with the same nuclear DNA, but different mitochondrial DNA. Although there was little difference between the sets of animals when they were young, differences in mitochondrial function, insulin signalling, obesity, and age-related measures including telomere shortening were observed as they aged. Notably, these differences affected the animals’ health and lifespan.
