Variations of a Single Gene Drive Diverse Pigeon Feather Patterns

University of Utah

In a new study, biologists have discovered that different versions of a single gene, called NDP (Norrie Disease Protein), have unexpected links between color patterns in pigeons, and vision defects in humans. The gene variations were likely bred into pigeons by humans from a different pigeon species and are now evolutionarily advantageous in wild populations of feral pigeons living in urban environments.

Researchers Clarify Role of Mutations in Glioblastoma

University of North Carolina Health Care System

Researchers investigated whether the location of the mutation within the sequence of the PIK3CA gene affected the mutation’s ability to help drive glioblastoma growth. They also tested whether mutations within certain sequences of the gene were linked to better responses to particular drugs. They found mutational status was not linked to a response to a single targeted drug, but it was to a combination of treatments.

Senolíticos melhoram a saúde e prolongam a vida: resultados de pesquisa pré-clínica

Mayo Clinic

A presença de células senescentes ou disfuncionais pode colaborar com o envelhecimento precoce dos camundongos jovens. Por outro lado, o uso de medicamentos senolíticos para remover essas células nocivas pode melhorar a saúde e prolongar a vida. Esses resultados de pesquisadores e colaboradores da Mayo Clinic fornecem uma base para avançar nesta área de pesquisa do envelhecimento. Os resultados foram publicados na Nature Medicine.
