Findings raise hope for new heart therapies Many people who survive a heart attack find themselves back in the hospital with a failing heart just years later. And the outcome often is unfavorable, owing to limited treatment options. But scientists at Temple University School of Medicine's Cardiovascular Research Center (CVRC) recently found hope in an unlikely source – stem cells in cortical, or compact, bone. In a new study, they show that when it comes to the regeneration of heart...

The mitochondria are the powerhouses of the cell, converting energy into usable forms. When a child is born with a gene defect that results in dysfunctional mitochondria, the results can be devastating, causing physical and cognitive disability and often death. Using genome-wide sequencing along with personalized functional genomics, researchers led by those at Baylor College of Medicine have identified mutations in a gene called FBXL4 revealing it as a novel cause of primary mitochondrial...

2013-08-29 08:52:33

AlphaGalileo Foundation Finnish researchers have identified a genetic mutation causing progressive retinal atrophy (PRA) in the Phalene and Papillon dog breeds. PRA is one of the most common causes of blindness in dogs and in human. This study highlights the shared genetic etiology of many canine and human genetic disorders, and provides new tools to investigate PRA mechanisms while the beloved dogs benefit from genetic testing. Professor Hannes Lohi’s research group at the University...

In an era of widespread genetic sequencing, the ability to edit and alter an organism's DNA is a powerful way to explore the information within and how it guides biological function. A paper from the University of Wisconsin–Madison in the August issue of the journal GENETICS takes genome editing to a new level in fruit flies, demonstrating a remarkable level of fine control and, importantly, the transmission of those engineered genetic changes across generations. Both features are key...
