Cell Biology in Sydney, Australia, have identified a novel function for BAFF: it acts as a specific survival factor for Ig-secreting cells derived from memory B cells. The study suggest that in human autoimmune diseases, elevated levels of serum BAFF may contribute to the disease process by not only breaking tolerance at the immature/transitional B cell stage of development, but by also enhancing plasmablast survival.

Secret to controlling thyroid hormone production

Originating in the thyroid, the prohormone thyroxine is converted to triiodothyronine, which is essential in brain development, growth, and metabolism. A study from researchers at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, reveals a novel mechanism for controlling triiodothyronine production that demonstrates the first example of enzyme activity being restored by deubiquitination.
