Research Identifies New Treatment Targets in Breast Cancer

Huntsman Cancer Institute at the University of Utah

- Scientists at Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI) at the University of Utah (U of U), in collaboration with the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, have generated the first single cell resolution atlas of genes that control the formation of breast tissue. The atlas provides a comprehensive molecular map that will be used to help researchers understand how breast cancers form and to pinpoint new ways to prevent, diagnose, and treat the disease.

Hearing Class

Harvard Medical School

A new study finds that the class of neurons responsible for transmitting information from the inner ear to the brain is composed of three molecularly distinct subtypes. The findings could inform efforts to develop therapeutic strategies to treat or protect against hearing loss.

Fat Production and Burning are Synchronized in Livers of Mice with Obesity

Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania

Mice fed a fattening diet develop new liver circadian rhythms that impact the way fat is accumulated and simultaneously burned. The team found that as liver fat production increases, surprisingly, so does the body’s ability to burn fat. These opposing physiological processes reach their peak activity each day around 5 p.m., illustrating an unexpected connection between overeating, circadian rhythms, and fat accumulation in the liver.

Bacterial Communities Use Sophisticated Strategy to Communicate over Long Distances

University of California San Diego

“Percolation” theory is helping explain how communities of bacteria can effectively relay signals across long distances. Once regarded as simple microorganisms, communities of bacteria have been found to employ a strategy we use to brew coffee and extract oil from the sea. Percolation helps the microscopic community thrive and survive threats.

Researchers Characterize “Mutational Burden” of Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells

University of California San Diego Health

In a new study, published in this week’s issue of Cell Reports, researchers at the University of California San Diego School of Medicine scrutinized the whole genome sequences of 18 induced pluripotent stem cell lines derived from skin cells that they had reprogrammed to identify and characterize somatic mutations.
