Risk of Obesity Influenced by Changes in Our Genes

A child’s risk of obesity as they grow up can be influenced by modifications to their DNA prior to birth, a new University of Southampton study has shown.

New Insights on Triggering Muscle Formation

LorenzoPuri_res.jpg

A team of scientists led by Lorenzo Puri, M.D., Ph.D., has identified a previously unrecognized step in stem cell-mediated muscle regeneration. The study, published in Genes and Development, helps explain why muscle stem cells lose the ability to generate new muscle as they age and provides insight into accelerated muscle stem cell aging in muscular dystrophy.

Circadian Clock

“Cyclops” Algorithm Spots Daily Rhythms in Cells

Humans, like virtually all other complex organisms on Earth, have adapted to their planet’s 24-hour cycle of sunlight and darkness. That circadian rhythm is reflected in human behavior, of course, but also in the molecular workings of our cells. Now scientists have developed a powerful tool for detecting and characterizing those molecular rhythms -- a tool that could have many new medical applications, such as more accurate dosing for existing medications.

Skin Stem Cells Used to Generate New Brain Cells

Using human skin cells, University of California, Irvine neurobiologists and their colleagues have created a method to generate one of the principle cell types of the brain called microglia, which play a key role in preserving the function of neural networks and responding to injury and disease.
