More than half of our genome consists of transposons, DNA sequences that are reminiscent of ancient, extinct viruses. Transposons are normally silenced by a process known as DNA methylation, but their activation can lead to serious diseases. Very little is known about transposons but researchers in an international collaboration project have now succeeded for the first time in studying what happens when DNA methylation is lost in human cells. These findings provide new insight into how changes in DNA methylation contribute to diseases.

Researchers have found that a gene known as AEBP1 may play a central role in the development, severity and potential treatment of liver disease. One of the study's major findings is that AEBP1 regulates the expression of a network of at least nine genes related to fibrosis: AKR1B10, CCDC80, DPT, EFEMP1, ITGBL1, LAMC3, MOXD1, SPP1, and STMN2.

An international team of researchers has discovered a new species of tree growing in the forests of the Usambara Mountains in Tanzania. The newfound tree species belongs to the genus Mischogyne (family Annonaceae, tribe Monodoreae), a group of small- to medium-sized tropical trees and shrubs. Named Mischogyne iddii, the species grows up to 33-66 feet [...]

A team has identified a gene that could make immunotherapy treatments, specifically checkpoint inhibitors, work for a wider variety of cancer patients. The study found that when the DUX4 gene is expressed in cancer cells, it can prevent the cancer from being recognized and destroyed by the immune system.
