Under Certain Conditions, Bacterial Signals Set the Stage for Leukemia

University of Chicago Medical Center

A new study by researchers from the University of Chicago Medicine shows that bacterial signals are crucial to the development of a precursor condition to leukemia, which can be induced by disrupting the intestinal barrier or by introducing a bacterial infection.

Biologists Find Mechanisms that Control Where Transcription Factors Bind

New York University

A team of biologists has determined how transcription factors, which guide gene regulation, function differently in embryonic development. The results help illuminate how cells acquire distinct functions as the embryo matures.

Scientists Find Missing Factor in Gene Activation

University of California San Diego

Scientists have unraveled a mystery on how genes are activated. Genes are blocked by structures known as nucleosomes, which package DNA. How do these roadblocks clear out to allow genes to turn on? Scientists have identified a key factor that unravels nucleosomes and clears the way. They say the finding is useful in understanding diseases such as cancer.

Taming Random Gene Changes As Our Bodies Start to Form

Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center

Scientists exploring how to tame random gene fluctuations as the embryos that become our bodies start to form have identified a control switch in the vertebrate segmentation clock of developing zebrafish. The researchers report in Cell Reports their findings could uncover methods for modulating genetic signals to prevent birth defects or cancers rooted at the earliest stages of development.
