Despite the structural sexual dimorphism in the song control system, both male and female starlings experience similar seasonal neuroplasticity in multisensory systems and cerebellum during the photosensitive phase, which acts as a sensitive window of plasticity.
Familial cancer clustering was significantly higher in US minority populations compared to those of US European origin, suggesting renewed need for a focus on family cancer predisposition in US Latinos, Blacks, and Asian/Pacific Islanders.
Adenoviral CRISPR/Cas9 gene knockdown of mutant Col8a2 achieves structural and functional rescue of murine Fuchs’ endothelial corneal dystrophy, the first demonstration of post-mitotic CRISPR-based knockdown for phenotypic restoration.
The transcriptional landscape of epicardial cells revealed 11 cell populations that differentially expressed early cardiac genes and numerous cardioprotective paracrine factors defining their regenerative potential.
Structure-guided biochemistry defines how the coupling between nucleic acid substrate binding and ATPase activity is used by a molecular switch to load ring-shaped motor proteins onto single-stranded DNA.
