  • Liu, Huanle; Begik, Oguzhan; Lucas, Morghan C.; Ramirez, Jose Miguel; Mason, Christopher E.; Wiener, David; Schwartz, Schraga; Mattick, John S.; Smith, Martin A.; Novoa, Eva Maria (Nature Research, 2019)
    The epitranscriptomics field has undergone an enormous expansion in the last few years; however, a major limitation is the lack of generic methods to map RNA modifications transcriptome-wide. Here, we show that using direct ...

    Cellular systems have evolved numerous mechanisms to adapt to environmental stimuli, underpinned by dynamic patterns of gene expression. In addition to gene transcription regulation, modulation of protein levels, dynamics ...
  • Casas, Ana I.; Hassan, Ahmed; Larsen, Simon J.; Gomez-Rangel, Vanessa; Elbatreek, Mahmoud; Kleikers, Pamela W. M.; Guney, Emre; Egea, Javier; López, Manuela G.; Baumbach, Jan; Schmidt, Harald H.H.W. (National Academy of Sciences, 2019)
    Drug discovery faces an efficacy crisis to which ineffective mainly single-target and symptom-based rather than mechanistic approaches have contributed. We here explore a mechanism-based disease definition for network ...
  • Glover, Natasha; Dessimoz, Christophe; Ebersberger, Ingo; Forslund, Sofia K.; Gabaldón Estevan, Juan Antonio, 1973-; Huerta Cepas, Jaime; Martin, Maria-Jesus; Muffato, Matthieu; Patricio, Mateus; Pereira, Cecile; Sousa da Silva, Alan; Wang, Yan-Dong; Sonnhammer, Erik; Thomas, Paul D. (Oxford University Press, 2019)
    Gene families evolve by the processes of speciation (creating orthologs), gene duplication (paralogs), and horizontal gene transfer (xenologs), in addition to sequence divergence and gene loss. Orthologs in particular play ...

    The gastrointestinal tract harbors most of the microbiota associated with humans. In recent years, there has been a surge of interest in assessing the relationships between the gut microbiota and several gut alterations, ...

    Early smoking onset age (SOA) is a public health concern with scant empirical evidence of its role in health outcomes. The study had two aims: i) to assess whether an early SOA was associated with the risk of fatal and ...
  • Courthéoux, Thibault; Reboutier, David; Vazeille, Thibaut; Cremet, Jean-Yves; Benaud, Christelle; Vernos, Isabelle, 1959-; Prigent, Claude (Company of Biologists, 2019)
    During mitosis, the cell sequentially constructs two microtubule-based spindles to ensure faithful segregation of chromosomes. A bipolar spindle first pulls apart the sister chromatids, then a central spindle further ...
  • Pinder, Corinne; Matsuo, Yuzy; Maurer, Sebastian; Toda, Takashi (Company of Biologists, 2019)
    High-fidelity chromosome segregation relies on proper microtubule regulation. Kinesin-8 has been shown to destabilise microtubules to reduce metaphase spindle length and chromosome movements in multiple species. XMAP215/chTOG ...

    Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) is an inhibitor of DYRK1A, a serine/threonine kinase considered to be a major contributor of cognitive dysfunctions in Down syndrome (DS). Two clinical trials in adult patients with DS have ...

    The French revolutionary Jean-Paul Marat (1743-1793) was assassinated in 1793 in his bathtub, where he was trying to find relief from the debilitating skin disease he was suffering from. At the time of his death, Marat was ...
  • Pires Hartwig, Fernando; Dalmau Bueno, Albert; Guxens Junyent, Mònica; Bustamante Pineda, Mariona; Gomes Victora, Cesar (Oxford University Press, 2019)
    Background: Accumulating evidence suggests that breastfeeding benefits children’s intelligence, possibly due to long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LC-PUFAs) present in breast milk. Under a nutritional adequacy hypothesis, ...

    Gene fusion occurs when two or more individual genes with independent open reading frames becoming juxtaposed under the same open reading frame creating a new fused gene. A small number of gene fusions described in detail ...
