Scientists Discover How Antiviral Gene Works

Albert Einstein College of Medicine

It’s been known for years that humans and other mammals possess an antiviral gene called RSAD2 that prevents a remarkable range of viruses from multiplying. Now, researchers at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, part of Montefiore, have discovered the secret to the gene’s success: The enzyme it codes for generates a compound that stops viruses from replicating. The newly discovered compound, described in today’s online edition of Nature, offers a novel approach for attacking many disease-causing viruses.

Deep Data Dive Helps Predict Cerebral Palsy

University of Delaware

A pioneering technique developed to analyze genetic activity of Antarctic worms is helping to predict cerebral palsy. The technique uses next-generation genetic sequencing data to measure how cells control the way genes are turned on or off, and can also be used in other human health care research.

إكتشفت Mayo Clinic أن الطفرات الجينيّة ترتبط بسرطان البنكرياس وتستدعي إجراء اختبارات موسعة

Mayo Clinic

روتشستر، مينيسوتا. — هناك ستة من الجينات الوراثية تحتوي على طفرات جينيّة يُمكن أن يتوارثها أفراد الأسرة الواحدة وتزيد بشكل كبير من خطر تعرُّض الشخص للإصابة بسرطان البنكرياس. وذلك وفقًا لأحـد البحوث الصادرة عن Mayo Clinic والمنشورة في إصدار التاسع عشر من يونيو من JAMA. على الرغم من ذلك، فقد اكتشف الباحثون وجود تلك الطفرات الوراثية في مرضى لا تُعاني عائلاتهم من أي تاريخ سابق للإصابة بسرطان البنكرياس، ولذلك فإنهم يوصون بإجراء اختبارات جينيّة لجميع مرضى سرطان البنكرياس كمعيار جديد للرعاية.
