mutations that impact NF-κB activation. Dr. Louis M. Staudt from the National Cancer Institute led a research group who revealed the importance of both the classical and alternative NF-κB pathways in MM pathogenesis. Most MM patient sampl...
Interaction of just 2 genes governs coloration patterns in mice

the genetic changes producing a simple color pattern that helps camouflage mice inhabiting the sandy dunes of Florida's Gulf and Atlantic coasts. These 'beach mice' have evolved a lighter pigmentation than their mainland relatives, a coloration that ...
