Genetic clues found for common congenital brain disorder

...searchers show that in humans, loss of one copy of each of two adjacent genes, known as ZIC1 and ZIC4, causes Dandy-Walker. The researchers then used this finding to create a mouse model to allow them to study the developmental basis of the disorder. "Dandy-Walker malformation is an important clinical pr...

Managing occupational exposures to potential bioterrorist agents

... however, that these are guidelines only, and that each case must be evaluated individually. The USAMRIID team also compared their recent experience with data on laboratory acquired infections during the offensive biological warfare research program conducted by the U.S. between 1943 and 1969. During tho...

This is a significant contribution to our understanding of biological invasion because it shows that dispersal played a more significant role than local ecological interactions in...

Newly discovered protein may be key to muscular dystrophy

... is found in C. elegans, in mice and in humans. In each species, defects in the complex can cause muscle degeneration, but the exact role of the complex in disease has not been clear. In a genetic screen, the scientists identified 12 mutations which produced defects in coordinated movement just like...

Clefts that occur in the oral-facial region often involve the upper lip, the roof of the mouth (hard palate), or the soft tissue in the back of the mouth (soft palate). More than 70 pe...

Gene duplication allowed pigs to have more babies

It is the evolution of these different catalytic activities that might have caused changes in the pig's reproductive biology.
