p53 Critical to Recovering from Acetaminophen Overdose

A new study shows that after an acetaminophen overdose, the p53 protein plays a key role in preventing the progression of liver damage and signaling the liver to repair itself. The findings could lead to new treatments for people who overdose on this popular pain reliever and fever reducer.

Risk of Obesity Influenced by Changes in Our Genes

A child’s risk of obesity as they grow up can be influenced by modifications to their DNA prior to birth, a new University of Southampton study has shown.

New Insights on Triggering Muscle Formation

A team of scientists led by Lorenzo Puri, M.D., Ph.D., has identified a previously unrecognized step in stem cell-mediated muscle regeneration. The study, published in Genes and Development, helps explain why muscle stem cells lose the ability to generate new muscle as they age and provides insight into accelerated muscle stem cell aging in muscular dystrophy.

Genetic Factors May Contribute to Adverse Effects Produced by Synthetic Cannabinoids

Synthetic cannabinoid abuse is a growing problem in the U.S. New discoveries tied to genetic factors that increase a person’s risk for experiencing the most dangerous effects of these drugs could lead to more effective treatments and antidotes.
