Ttc30a affects tubulin modifications in a model for ciliary chondrodysplasia with polycystic kidney disease

Significance Cilia are tubulin-based cellular appendages, and their dysfunction has been linked to a variety of genetic diseases. Ciliary chondrodysplasia is one such condition that can co-occur with cystic kidney disease and other organ manifestations. We modeled skeletal ciliopathies by mutating two established disease genes in Xenopus tropicalis frogs. Bioinformatic…

SNP of the SREK1 gene is associated with COPD in Kashi

Introduction Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a chronic respiratory disorder that progresses slowly and is characterized by an obstructive ventilatory pattern, which is rarely reversible. The main risk factors are active smoking, genetic factors, and air pollution. In particular, COPD has been a major public health problem and will…

Genome-wide synthetic lethal screen unveils novel CAIX-NFS1/xCT axis as a targetable vulnerability in hypoxic solid tumors

Abstract The metabolic mechanisms involved in the survival of tumor cells within the hypoxic niche remain unclear. We carried out a synthetic lethal CRISPR screen to identify survival mechanisms governed by the tumor hypoxia–induced pH regulator carbonic anhydrase IX (CAIX). We identified a redox homeostasis network containing the iron-sulfur cluster…

Strong within-host selection in a maternally inherited obligate symbiont: Buchnera and aphids

Significance Many animals depend on maternally transmitted symbiotic bacteria that provide nutrients or other benefits. The evolution of these symbionts is complicated: natural selection can act on hosts, favoring symbionts that increase host reproduction, or on symbionts, favoring symbionts that spread within hosts. Furthermore, transmission bottlenecks can facilitate the spread…
