First Atlas of B-cell Clones in Human Body Forms New Foundation for Infectious Disease Research

PrakNatureBiotechCoverAug2017.png

A new “anatomic atlas” of how B cells – the immune system’s producer of antibodies – link up to form networks has been charted by researchers. This map will be an important resource for researchers and clinicians studying infectious diseases, the microbiome, vaccine responses, and tissue-specific immunity.

Turtles May Hold the Key to Protecting Human Hearts after Heart Attack

In humans, going just minutes without oxygen—such as during a heart attack or stroke—can cause devastating damage to the heart. Researchers looking to freshwater turtles to understand the mechanisms that protect them from heart damage after long hibernation periods will present their findings at the Physiological Bioenergetics: Mitochondria from Bench to Bedside conference in San Diego.

Chemists Get Step Closer to Replicating Nature with Assembly of New 3D Structures

A team of chemists has created a series of three-dimensional structures that take a step closer to resembling those found in nature. The work offers insights into how enzymes are properly assembled, or folded, which could enhance our understanding of a range of diseases that result from these misfolded proteins.

You and Some 'Cavemen' Get a Genetic Checkup

Evolution has weeded out genetic variants associated with diseases for millennia and propagated genetic variants that protect against ailments, a comparative genetics study shows. But that good trend may have recently gone in reverse.
