Early male and female germ cells regulate their gene expression differently

13 December 2021 Gene expression during early development of primordial germ cells (PGCs) is sex-specific. Research led by Professor Petra Hajkova from the Reprogramming and Chromatin research group at the Medical Research Council London Institute of Medical Sciences has shown for the first time that germ cells, which give rise…

Stem cell study paves way for gene editing to produce cultured meat

Scientists have obtained stem cells from pigs, sheep, and cattle without the need for serum, feeder cells, or antibiotics to pave the way for “manufacturing cell-cultured meat and breeding enhanced livestock”. The researchers for the study were mainly from the University of Nottingham’s School of Biosciences in the UK, in…

Epistasis shapes the fitness landscape of an allosteric specificity switch

Computational design Protein modeling and design was performed with Rosetta version 3.5 (2015.19.57819)35,37. Python and shell scripts for generating input from Rosetta and analyzing from Rosetta are available at: github.com/raman-lab/biosensor_design The high-resolution TtgR structure co-crystalized with tetracycline was selected as the starting point for computational design (PDB: 2UXH)28. The structure…

Some Medications Can Accumulate in Gut Bacteria

Common medications can accumulate in gut bacteria, a new study has found, altering bacterial function and potentially reducing the medications’ effectiveness. “If we can characterise how people respond depending on the composition of their microbiome, then drug treatments could be individualised,”Kiran Patil These interactions – seen for many drugs including…

Multiform antimicrobial resistance from a metabolic mutation

Abstract A critical challenge for microbiology and medicine is how to cure infections by bacteria that survive antibiotic treatment by persistence or tolerance. Seeking mechanisms behind such high survival, we developed a forward-genetic method for efficient isolation of high-survival mutants in any culturable bacterial species. We found that perturbation of…
