The Notch gene encodes a receptor protein that is involved in many processes during development. Its best understood role is during neurogenesis in a process called "lateral inhibition." However, it has been proposed that Notch also has a role in defining the proneural clusters in the first place. This raises the possibility that the Notch protein is acting(More)
Naked mole-rats (NMRs) are the oldest-living rodent species. Living underground in a thermally stable ecological niche, NMRs have evolved certain exceptional traits, resulting in sustained health spans, negligible cognitive decline, and a pronounced resistance to age-related disease. Uncovering insights into mechanisms underlying these extraordinary traits(More)
