COVID-19 causes profound epigenetic changes in the lungs of patients who have died from the disease, particularly affecting genes related to hyperinflammation and fibrosis.
The SureSeq Myeloid MRD Panel is claimed to represent a substantial improvement on conventional flow cytometry and qPCR methods of detecting measurable residual disease (MRD) in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) samples.
Researchers have combined over seven synthetic chromosomes that were made in the lab into a single yeast cell, resulting in a strain with more than 50% synthetic DNA.
Latrunculins are cell-permeable marine toxins that have been shown to strongly affect actin polymerisation.
Users of SureSeq myeloid panels can now benefit from insightful tertiary reporting for all myeloid malignancy content and variants.
Renting your home has a stronger link to faster 'biological aging' — the cumulative damage to the body's tissues and cells — compared to unemployment or being a former smoker.
When ANP32A gene-edited chickens were exposed to a normal dose of the H9N2-UDL strain of avian influenza virus, nine out of 10 birds remained uninfected.
Researchers have developed a new gene editing technique that is just as effective as CRISPR/Cas9 while significantly reducing any unintended mutations.
SMCHD1, a gene discovered by researchers in 2008, is critical for switching off the production of the protein that causes facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy.
The hormone testosterone may play an important role in the development of endometrial cancer, raising new possibilities for screening, preventing and fighting the disease.
Researchers have isolated and sequenced RNA molecules from a preserved thylacine specimen, resulting in the reconstruction of skin and skeletal muscle transcriptomes from an extinct species.
Scientists say they have identified a self-destruct button within EBV-associated gastric cancer, and also figured out how to press that self-destruct button.
The study has discovered specific changes in our DNA that increase the risk of developing epilepsy, advancing our knowledge of why epilepsy develops.
The genes of the mitochondria, the energy producers of our cells, can be negatively impacted by SARS-CoV-2, leading to dysfunction in multiple organs beyond the lungs.
The mechanism that repairs our skin cells' DNA takes precedence over all other systems in the cell, temporarily inhibiting the pigmentation mechanism.
