Majority of Baseball Parents Unaware Their Youth Athlete Is Specializing Which Can Lead to a Higher Rate of Injury

National Athletic Trainers' Association

Baseball is an incredibly popular sport in the United States with 13 million-17 million athletes under the age of 18 participating at the club and high school levels. Despite evidence suggesting that sport specialization may be related to the development of overuse injuries and surgeries in youth athletes, youth specialization rates continue to rise in the United States. In this study, 31% of youth athletes self-classified as specialized in baseball, whereas the remaining 69% identified as non-specialized. When re-classified to scientific standards, the reality was that more than 83% of the cohort qualified as specialized and 17% qualified as not specialized.

Scientists discover link between unique brain cells and OCD and anxiety

University of Utah

Scientists discovered a new lineage of specialized brain cells, called Hoxb8-lineage microglia, and established a link between the lineage and OCD and anxiety in mice. Their experiments proved that Hoxb8-lineage microglia prevent mice from displaying OCD behaviors and sex hormones drove symptom severity and anxiety.

Article ID: 721147

Single Mutation Dramatically Changes Structure and Function of Bacteria’s Transporter Proteins

New York University

Swapping a single amino acid in a simple bacterial protein changes its structure and function, revealing the effects of complex gene evolution, finds a new study published in the journal eLife. The study—conducted using E. coli bacteria—can help researchers to better understand the evolution of transporter proteins and their role in drug resistance.
