Mapping the evolutionary history of a sugar gene

Added: 16.12.2017 14:01 | 5 views | 0 comments

The gene CMAH, that allows for the synthesis of a sugar called Neu5Gc, is missing from humans. This sugar is present in red meats, some fish and dairy products. When humans consume an animal with that gene, the body has an immune reaction to the foreign sugar, which can cause inflammation, arthritis, and cancer. Researchers have analyzed 322 animal genome sequences looking for animals with the presence of active CMAH genes.

Understanding the underlying mechanisms that lead to psoriasis

Added: 16.12.2017 2:11 | 5 views | 0 comments

Psoriasis is an inflammatory skin condition that affects some 125 million people worldwide. It is characterized by itchy, scaly skin plaques. The exact cause of psoriasis is unclear. But mounting evidence implicates the immune system in the overproduction of cell-signalling molecules called cytokines, which stimulate skin cells called keratinocytes to express genes that maintain an inflammatory microenvironment. Now, scientists have found more evidence that a cytokine called IL-17A is especially critical in this process.
