Study identifies location of DNA that gives clues to hidden cancer mutations

University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Health Sciences

A new study by UCLA scientists shows that enhancers, snippets of DNA that contribute to gene regulation, fall into the same “insulated neighborhoods” or chromatin loops as the target gene and other gene-specific regulatory elements.

Kidney Transplant Survivor Toasts Life This Holiday Season

Cedars-Sinai

Here's a great holiday story about a 20-year-old Reno, NV, man whose mother saved his life. Harley Brackney's snowboarding accident and subsequent trip to the emergency room led to the shocking discovery that he had a life-altering condition - stage 5 renal failure - and needed a kidney transplant. Fortunately for Harley Brackney, his mom was a perfect match and instead of waiting 7 to 10 years for a donor organ -- as many people must -- he was able to have a transplant in just a matter of months.
