Study Looks at Stem Cells for Answers to How a Type of Autism Develops

Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago

The lab of Yongchao Ma, PhD, from Stanley Manne Children’s Research Institute at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, discovered how the genetic defect in fragile X syndrome – a type of autism – delays production of neurons (nerve cells) at a critical time in the embryo’s brain development. In a study published in Cell Reports, Dr. Ma and colleagues describe a previously unknown regulatory mechanism controlling how stem cells differentiate into neurons. They identified early disruptions in this process in fragile X syndrome, the most common inherited intellectual disability in children.

Disrupting Immune Cell Behavior May Contribute to Heart Disease And Failure, Study Shows

Johns Hopkins Medicine

On an ice hockey team, the players all start off with identical uniforms, skates and a stick. But if you take one of them, add padding, a glove, and a mask; and switch the stick to one with a larger blade, then you get a goalie. Now, the player has morphed — or differentiated — into a one with a specific function: protect the goal from invading pucks.

UC San Diego Cancer Scientists Identify New Drug Target for Multiple Tumor Types

University of California San Diego Health

A dysfunctional enzyme involved in building cancer cell membranes helps fuel tumor growth; when it’s disabled or depleted in mouse models, tumors shrank significantly.

Scientists Invent Fast Method for ‘Directed Evolution’ of Molecules

University of North Carolina School of Medicine

Nobel Prize-winning Directed evolution is an artificial, sped up process to make a protein perform a specified task. UNC School of Medicine scientists created a powerful new directed evolution technique for the rapid development of scientific tools and new treatments for many diseases.

By Cannibalizing Nearby Stromal Stem Cells, Some Breast Cancer Cells Gain Invasion Advantage

Michigan Medicine - University of Michigan

Researchers at the University of Michigan Rogel Cancer Center and U-M College of Engineering have found that breast cancer cells that swallow up nearby stem cells take on some of their properties, enhancing their ability to invade other tissues throughout the body and seed secondary tumors, a process known as metastasis.
