Normalizing Tcf4 expression during early postnatal development improves behavioral outcomes in Pitt-Hopkins syndrome (PTHS) model mice, suggesting that genetic therapies are feasible in individuals with PTHS.
Single-cell time-lapse imaging and optogenetical gene recombination system uncovered that bacteria cells can overcome a deleterious genetic change of antibiotic resistance gene deletion depending on their environmental histories.
Biochemical and genetic analysis of the functional relationship between RIT1 and its regulatory protein, LZTR1, across various model organisms helps define the substrate specificity of LZTR1 for RAS GTPases.
Increased efficiency of targeted genome editing by simple addition of a bipartite-optimized tag at the N- and C-termini of effector proteins (Cas9 and cytosine-to-thymine base editor) is applicable in organismo and cell culture.
Age-dependent changes in DNA methylation are tightly coupled to the metabolic state, and is partly under genetic regulation, and longer lifespan is associated with lower epigenetic entropy at CpGs that increase in methylation with age.
