Analyses of human stem cells with distinct GATA6 mutations revealed a spectrum of molecular responses that drive isolated congenital heart disease or the co-occurrence of pancreas and diaphragm malformations.
Faithful models of RMC require SMARCB1 loss for survival, and genetic and small-molecule screens identify inhibition of the ubiquitin-proteasome system (UPS) as a potential therapeutic approach for SMARCB1 deficient cancers.
Perinatal granulopoiesis and cord blood serum PGLYRP-1, a specific granule protein, are altered prior to onset of childhood asthma and provide potential targets for early identification of at-risk populations.
Diffusion-MRI-based cerebral cortical microstructure encoding regionally differential dendritic arborization and synaptic formation at birth robustly predicts future 2-year-old cognitive and language outcomes with regionally heterogeneous contribution that exhibits functional selectivity.
Single cell transcriptomics reveal a complex orchestration of lung immune cells during the transition from fetal to air-breathing life to fill context-specific functions in tissue remodeling, angiogenesis, and immunity.
RNA profiles from lungs of mice exposed to intermittent hypoxia shared similarity with gene expression changes in human lung from patients with pulmonary diseases, including pulmonary hypertension, COPD, and asthma.
