Artemis is the Greek goddess that guards young children and small animals. The gene Artemis is therefore appropriately named, as it seems to be a genome guardian that protects children and mice from cancer. In the February issue of the Journal of Clinical Investigation, Moshous et al. associate mutations in Artemis with immunodeficiency and predisposition to lymphoma. Artemis was initially identified as a factor involved in the non-homologous end-joining (NHEJ) phase of V(D)J recombination of… Expand

The fact that Zika is a close relative of yellow fever and Japanese encephalitis viruses provides a rational basis for the fast-tracked laboratory-based preparation of a candidate vaccine, however, undertaking clinical trials on pregnant females provides ethical and practical hurdles to overcome before licensure is granted for public administration.

An Effector from the Cyst Nematode Heterodera schachtii Derepresses Host rRNA Genes by Altering Histone Acetylation[OPEN]
The data show that the 32E03 effector alters plant rRNA gene expression by modulating rDNA chromatin in a dose-dependent manner, which regulates plant gene expression to promote cyst nematode parasitism. Expand
Efficiency of erythropoietin to reduce blood transfusion during craniosynostosis surgical repair: a preliminary study: C-1
CBF autoregulation is abolished in rats during early S. pneumoniae meningitis in some animals, in the absence of significant changes in the intracranial pressure, as it inhibits fluctuations in perfusion pressure. Expand
A Theory for the Origin of Human Menopause
The theory proposed herein explains at multiple levels – ultimately genetic but involving behavioral, life history, and social changes – the origin and evolution of menopause in women, and associate in a one-to-one manner with existing, non-mutually exclusive hypotheses. Expand

The asbestos-related policies should be revaluated on the basis of independent research, and carcinogenicity of chrysotile vs. amphibole asbestos is discussed. Expand
Tackling Technical Debt: Managing Advances in DNA Technology thatOutpace the Evolution of Law
From its initial development in the 1980s as an identification tool, the use of DNA in criminal cases—both to convict defendants and exonerate the wrongly convicted—has been prolific. By the 1990s,Expand
The East–West Divide in Response to COVID-19
It is argued that the currently available information points to the factors most responsible for the East–West divide, which plausibly results from failure in the West to implement the basic public health policies of early action and the isolation of infectious individuals. Expand
