Size Matters: How Cells Pack in Epithelial Tissues

Stowers Institute for Medical Research

Small-cell clones in proliferating epithelia – tissues that line all body surfaces – organize very differently than their normal-sized counterparts, according to a recent study from the Stowers Institute for Medical Research. Published online September 5, 2019, in Developmental Cell, these findings from the laboratory of Matthew Gibson, PhD, may contribute to a better understanding of how some human diseases progress.

Super-resolution microscopy illuminates associations between chromosomes

Stowers Institute for Medical Research

KANSAS CITY, MO—Thanks to super-resolution microscopy, scientists have now been able to unambiguously identify physical associations between human chromosomes. The findings have brought to light a new understanding to a curious observation first made more than 50 years ago. The Stowers Institute for Medical Research scientists probed these physical connections between five of the chromosomes in the human karyotype in a report recently published online in the Journal of Cell Biology.

More than a protein factory

Stowers Institute for Medical Research

Researchers from the Stowers Institute for Medical Research have discovered a new function of ribosomes in human cells that may show the protein-making particle’s role in destroying healthy mRNAs, the messages that decode DNA into protein.

New Method of Scoring Protein Interactions Mines Large Data Sets From a Fresh Angle

Stowers Institute for Medical Research

Researchers from the Stowers Institute for Medical Research have created a novel way to define individual protein associations in a quick, efficient, and informative way. These findings, published in the March 8, 2019, issue of Nature Communications, show how the topological scoring (TopS) algorithm, created by Stowers researchers, can – by combining data sets – identify proteins that come together.

"Navigator" neurons play critical role in sense of smell

Stowers Institute for Medical Research

Researchers at the Stowers Institute for Medical Research have identified "navigator" neurons that are key to setting up connections in the system responsible for the sense of smell. The new study builds on a breakthrough 2014 report from the laboratory of Stowers Investigator Ron Yu, Ph.D., which showed a critical period in olfactory wiring using mice as a model system.

New study probes the ancient past of a body plan code

Stowers Institute for Medical Research

Researchers from the Stowers Institute for Medical Research have opened a window on another piece of evolutionary biology. They have found that Hox genes, which are key regulators of the way the bodies of bilaterally symmetrical animals form, also play a role in controlling the radially symmetric body plan of the starlet sea anemone, Nematostella vectensis.

New Model for Predicting Neuroblastoma Outcomes Incorporates Early Developmental Signals

Stowers Institute for Medical Research

Motivated by a desire to better understand the molecular circuitry underlying neuroblastoma and limitations of current methods for predicting disease progression and outcome, researchers from the Kulesa Lab at the Stowers Institute for Medical Research and collaborators at the University of Michigan and Oxford University set out to construct a logic-based model incorporating information about developmental signaling pathways implicated in the disease.
