Central signaling found in mitochondrial diseases
Researchers have identified a master network of signaling molecules that acts like a "fuse box" to regulate the cellular effects of defective energy flow in mitochondrial respiratory chain diseases—a diverse set of difficult-to-treat genetic-based energy disorders.

Epilepsy in a dish — stem cells reveal clues to disease
A new stem cell-based approach to studying epilepsy has yielded a surprising discovery about what causes one form of the disease, and may help in the search for better medicines to treat all kinds of seizure disorders.

Controlling genes with light
New technique can rapidly turn genes on and off, helping scientists better understand their function.

Heading for regeneration
Max Planck researchers manage to reactivate head regeneration in a regeneration-deficient species of planarian flat worms.

Neural simulations hint at the origin of brain waves
For almost a century, scientists have been studying brain waves to learn about mental health and the way we think. Yet the way billions of interconnected neurons work together to produce brain waves remains unknown. Now, computer assisted research brings us closer to an answer.

Clinical value of very small embryonic-like stem cells?
Scientists have reported that very small embryonic-like stem cells (VSELs), which can be isolated from blood or bone marrow rather than embryos, could represent an alternative to mouse and human embryonic stem cells for research and medicine. But their very existence is hotly debated.

Putting the brakes on inflammation
Researchers have uncovered a signal that prevents the immune system from spinning out of control. The findings could help develop more effective therapies for autoimmune disorders, allergies, chronic inflammation and cancer.

We are the microbes we carry
You are not just yourself. You are also the thousands of microbes that you carry. In fact, they represent an invisible majority that may be more you than you realize.

The Secret to Making Macrophages
Biologists at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have worked out the details of a mechanism that leads blood stem cells to become macrophages—immune cells that attack bacteria and other foreign pathogens.

Shocker: The 'female' X chromosome key to sperm production
Painstaking new analysis of the genetic sequence of the X chromosome—long perceived as the "female" counterpart to the male-associated Y chromosome—reveals that large portions of the X have evolved to play a specialized role in sperm production.

Researchers create a complete description of genes in the human retina
Investigators at Massachusetts Eye and Ear and Harvard Medical School have published the most thorough description of gene expression in the human retina reported to date.

Deadliest cancers may respond to new drug strategy
UC San Francisco researchers have found a way to knock down cancers caused by a tumor-driving protein called “myc,” paving the way for patients with myc-driven cancers to enroll in clinical trials for experimental treatments.

Gene mutation in dogs offers clues for neural tube defects in humans
A gene related to neural tube defects in dogs has for the first time been identified by researchers at the University of California, Davis, and University of Iowa.

Newly found CLAMP protein regulates genes
A newly discovered protein, found in many species, turns out to be the missing link allowing regulation of a complex that operates the lone X chromosome of male fruit flies — bringing them to parity with females. Called CLAMP, the protein is a model of how regulatory protein complexes find their targets.
