Circadian expression of cone visual transduction genes and corresponding proteins correlates with circadian changes in photoresponse kinetics and visual behavior, linking circadian gene expression with physiological and behavioral rhythmicity.
A comprehensive package for pedigree-based risk modeling, with a highly optimized computational back-end, extends existing models beyond syndrome-specific approaches and incorporates data from panel studies by allowing for an arbitrary number of gene and syndrome associations.
An integrated stem cell-based disease modeling and computational approach demonstrates how proximal airway epithelium is critical for SARS-CoV-2 infectivity and distal alveolar cells are critical for simulating the host responses.
The use of nanopatterned hydrogels and specific integrin α5β1 peptidomimetic revealed that keratinocytes require an optimum inter-ligand spacing to best propagate intercellular forces and efficiently coordinate cell sheet migration.
In a Ugandan birth cohort, early childhood infection-exposure, notably to malaria, helminths, and diarrhoea, is associated with lower prevalence of atopy and allergy-related diseases in later childhood.
Using a cross-species phenotypic drug discovery pipeline, compounds promoting rod photoreceptor survival in zebrafish and mouse models of retinitis pigmentosa were identified, evidence of additive effects of paired compounds and inhibition of PARP-dependent cell death suggest novel therapeutic strategies.
