Biologists Identify Gene Involved in Kidney-Related Birth Defects

A team led by University of Iowa researchers has identified a gene linked to rare kidney-related birth defects. When working properly, a gene called GREB1L activates a cascade of signals that ultimately tells other genes what they need to do to create a kidney. Results published in the journal Genetics.

Genetically Altered Mice Bear Some Hallmarks of Human Bipolar Behavior

Johns Hopkins researchers report they have genetically engineered mice that display many of the behavioral hallmarks of human bipolar disorder, and that the abnormal behaviors the rodents show can be reversed using well-established drug treatments for bipolar disorder, such as lithium.

How Does a Cell Maintain its Identity During Replication?

ZaretPalozolaSciencecellimageSept2017.jpg

Prior to cell division, chromosomes are seemingly a jumbled mess. Researchers have long assumed that genes become “silent” during cell division, not being transcribed into proteins or regulatory molecules. This has left open the question of how genes get properly re-activated after cell division. Now, researchers have found that gene expression actually continues during cell replication.

Researchers Develop New Strategy to Target KRAS Mutant Cancer

In a new study, published this month in Cancer Discovery, University of California San Diego School of Medicine researchers report that approximately half of lung and pancreatic cancers that originate with a KRAS mutation become addicted to the gene as they progress.
