Mass Vaccination Triggers Spike in Cases, Deaths

Researchers have confirmed that it’s not the SARS-CoV-2 virus itself damaging the body’s cells, it’s the spike protein. And it does this by binding ACE2, which can lead to mitochondrial damage. STORY AT-A-GLANCE Doctors for COVID Ethics have been warning about the potential for gene-based COVID-19 “vaccines” to cause blood…

Bernstein wraps postdoc, joins cancer research startup

Tumors are complicated. Scientists can examine individual tumor cells and find varying patterns of gene expression. Sample those same locations again at a later time, and new patterns may emerge. Multiply these experiments by dozens of locations, thousands of genes, and several time points, and now there is a huge…

Research Roundup: New Insights into Alzheimer’s, ALS and FTD

BSIP/UIG Via Getty Images One particular gene variant, APOE4, is associated with an increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease. But why that is the case, what the mechanism of action is, has eluded researchers. At least one pathway has been determined, and it has possible repercussions in developing therapies against the…

Dissection and Immunohistochemistry of the Drosophila Adult Leg to Detect Changes at the Neuromuscular Junction for an Identified Motor Neuron

The overall goal of this procedure is to demonstrate dissection methods for the adult leg of Drosophila. This technique removes a portion of the cuticle, exposing the underlying tissue in a way that preserves neuronal and muscle architecture. This procedure allows us to characterize the neuromuscular junction for identified motor…

Optogenetic Phase Transition of TDP-43 in Spinal Motor Neurons of Zebrafish Larvae

We describe a protocol to induce phase transition of TAR DNA-binding protein 43 (TDP-43) by light in the spinal motor neurons using zebrafish as a model. So this protocol enables us to induce pathological phase transitions of TDP-43 and address their cellular consequence in the spinal motor neurons in vivo,…

Drosophila carrying epilepsy-associated variants in the vitamin B6 metabolism gene PNPO display allele- and diet-dependent phenotypes

Pyridox(am)ine 5′-phosphate oxidase (PNPO; Enzyme Commission Number 1.4.3.5) is a rate-limiting enzyme in the synthesis of vitamin B6 (VB6) (1). Mutations in PNPO can cause neonatal epileptic encephalopathy, a devastating disease that usually leads to death if untreated (2). Recently, PNPO mutations have also been reported in patients with infantile…

The Genetic Architecture of Sleep Health Scores in the UK

Introduction Sleep is a complex neurological and physiological state. It is defined as a natural and reversible state of reduced responsiveness to external stimuli and relative inactivity, accompanied by a loss of consciousness.1 Sleep disorders can be classified as seven major categories: insomnia disorders, sleep-related breathing disorders, central disorders of…

Rapid generation of ventral spinal cord-like astrocytes from human iPSCs for modeling non-cell autonomous mechanisms of lower motor neuron disease

Abstract Background: Astrocytes play important roles in the function and survival of neuronal cells. Dysfunctions of astrocytes are associated with numerous disorders and diseases of the nervous system, including motor neuron diseases such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Human induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-based approaches are becoming increasingly important for…
