The Y Chromosome Is Much More than a One-Trick Pony

Mostly associated with male reproduction, advances in genomic sequencing have revealed a new set of roles for the Y chromosome. In a new review article in Physiological Genomics, researchers summarize the influence of the Y chromosome in male disease risk.

New Method Could Detect Blood Clots Anywhere in the Body with a Single Scan

article637636.image1.jpg

A blood clot can potentially trigger heart attacks, strokes and other medical emergencies. Treatment requires finding its exact location, but current techniques can only look at one part of the body at once. Now, researchers are reporting a method, tested in rats, that may someday allow physicians to quickly scan the entire body for a blood clot. The team will describe their approach at the 250th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society.

Color-Changing Polymer May Signal Traumatic Brain Injuries in Soldiers, Athletes (Video)

A bomb blast or a rough tackle can inflict serious brain damage. Yet at the time of impact, these injuries are often invisible. To detect head trauma immediately, a team of researchers has developed a polymer-based material that changes colors depending on how hard it is hit. The goal is to someday incorporate this material into protective headgear. They will describe their approach at the 250th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society.

Genetic Tug of War in the Brain Influences Behavior

Researchers at the University of Utah School of Medicine report that a nuanced, targeted version of parental control over gene expression, is the method of choice over classic genomic imprinting. Published in Cell Reports, so-called noncanonical imprinting is particularly prevalent in the brain, and skews the genetic message in subpopulations of cells so that mom, or dad, has a stronger say. The mechanism can influence offspring behavior, and because it is observed more frequently than classic imprinting, appears to be preferred.

NUS Team Discovers Novel Way of Protecting Male Reproductive Cells and Hails New Approach to Addressing Male Infertility

A team of researchers from the National University of Singapore’s (NUS) Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine has demonstrated for the first time that hydrogen sulphide (H2S), when applied exogenously, could protect testicular germ cells, which are male reproductive cells, against heat-induced injury, which is one of the major causes of male infertility. The findings may provide a new approach to treating male infertility.

Does Concussion Impact Men and Women Differently?

New research suggests concussion may not significantly impair symptoms or cognitive skills for one gender over another, however, women may still experience greater symptoms and poorer cognitive performance at preseason testing. The study released today will be presented at the Sports Concussion Conference in Denver, July 24 to 26, hosted by the American Academy of Neurology, the world’s leading authority on diagnosing and managing sports concussion.
