An intronic transposon insertion associates with a trans-species color polymorphism in Midas cichlid fishes

Conflicting results suggest a missing variant In order to narrow down candidates for the causal genetic variant, we performed genome-wide association mapping separately in individual lake populations (previously, association mapping was only performed across the whole species flock5). Interestingly, despite clear association peaks in the crater lakes (Fig. 1a, b), the…

TANK prevents IFN-dependent fatal diffuse alveolar hemorrhage by suppressing DNA-cGAS aggregation

Abstract Diffuse alveolar hemorrhage (DAH) is one of the serious complications associated with systemic lupus erythematosus, an autoimmune disease whose pathogenesis involves type I IFNs and cytokines. Here, we show that TANK, a negative regulator of the NF-κB signaling via suppression of TRAF6 ubiquitination, is critical for the amelioration of…

Dura cells in the etiopathogenesis of Crouzon syndrome: the effects of FGFR2 mutations in the dura cells on the proliferation of osteoblasts through the hippo/YAP mediated transcriptional regulation pathway

Background: FGFR2 (fibroblast growth factor receptor 2) mutations are implicated in the etiopathogenesis of syndromic craniosynostosis, and C278F- or C342Y-FGFR2 mutations can lead to Crouzon syndrome. The dura mater exerts crucial effects in the regulation of cranial suture development. However, the underlying mechanisms of these biological processes are rarely studied….
