Potential cause of elevated nighttime blood pressure in patients with apnea identified

University of Missouri, Columbia

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) affects an estimated 22 million Americans. In addition to sleep problems, the condition can cause other health issues, including high blood pressure, chronic heart failure and stroke.

Scientists Detail how Chromosomes Reorganize after Cell Division

Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

Researchers have discovered key mechanisms and structural details of a fundamental biological process—how a cell nucleus and its chromosomal material reorganizes itself after cell division. The new findings in chromosomal architecture and function may offer important insights into human health and disease.

Newswise: CRISPR-Cas9 Gene Editing Shows Very Low Risk of Mistakes

CRISPR-Cas9 Gene Editing Shows Very Low Risk of Mistakes

Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago

Along with the promise that CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing technology can offer new human therapies is the need to ensure its safety. A recent study showed that CRISPR-Cas9 did not produce off-target gene mutations in zebrafish. These results, published in Frontiers in Genetics, confirm previous data in animal models that the risk to the rest of the genome from gene editing is minimal.

Newswise: Genetic Testing Results Help Mom Be Proactive About Her Health

Genetic Testing Results Help Mom Be Proactive About Her Health

Nuvance Health

A strong family history of various cancers and her own breast cancer diagnosis led Wendy Richardson to pursue genetic testing at Danbury Hospital. Genetic testing results showed that Wendy was at high risk for breast and stomach cancer. Wendy and her healthcare team used this information to make decisions about her breast cancer treatment and future preventive care. Wendy believes that the information she received through genetic testing is powerful because it has allowed her to be proactive about her and her family’s health.

LJI researchers reveal unexpected versatility of an ancient DNA repair factor

La Jolla Institute for Immunology

New work from the lab of La Jolla Institute for Immunology (LJI) investigator Anjana Rao, Ph.D., reveals a previously unrecognized activity for a highly conserved DNA repair factor. The study reports that mouse lymphocytes engineered to lack that protein (known as HMCES and pronounced Hem'-sez) cannot recombine their DNA in a manner necessary to make new classes of antibodies, called Immunoglobulins G or A (IgG or IgA).
