Researchers identify a new gene implicated in a rare lysosomal storage disorder

In a rare disease called type 2 mucolipidemia, people’s hearts and stomachs swell, and their bones are deformed. Lysosomal storage disorder, myxomatosis type II causes edema of internal organs and skeletal dysplasia. Children diagnosed with the genetic disease often die before they reach the age of seven. Now, University of Michigan researchers have identified a … Read more

Stanford University researchers have devised a new technique to control protein production

Thanks to new RNA vaccines, we humans have been able to protect ourselves incredibly quickly from new viruses like SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. These vaccines insert a piece of ephemeral genetic material into the body’s cells, which then read its code and produce a specific protein — in this case, telltale “spikes” that … Read more

Effect of biochemical, epigenetic and genetic factors on the health of red blood cells

Berry Andemariam, MD: This is the perfect part of a question I want to ask Matt. How are 2,3-DPG levels increased [diphosphoglycerate] The effect of red blood cells? Matthew M Heaney, MD: An increase in 2,3-DPG shifts the sigmoid-shaped oxygen dissociation curve to the right. This increases the p50 we use in the lab, which … Read more

It’s time for comprehensive genetic testing of the germ line in breast cancer

A new study provides additional support for comprehensive germline genetic testing of affected women breast cancer. The study found that adherence to current restrictive guidelines on germline testing is missed by a significant number of women with pathogenic or potentially pathogenic (P/LP) variants, which would alter patient management. The study used a polygenic cancer panel … Read more

What are the risks of developing hypertensive disorders in pregnancies after assisted reproduction?

In Western countries, 7% of babies are born by assisted reproductive technology (ART). Traditionally, ART is associated with intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) and in the laboratory Fertilization (IVF), which involves fresh-ET embryo transfer. Sometimes, in the case of surplus embryos, they are frozen and can be thawed later and used in later cycles. The number … Read more

Single-cell research highlights the role of DNA methylation in cell fate decisions

Newswise – Research from the Reik Lab at the Babraham Institute has advanced our understanding of the role of DNA methylation during the early stages of development. Technological advances in this field, which provide the ability to collect parallel data types from a single cell and the presence of cell atlas references and comprehensive data … Read more
