  • "Explosion in cancer genome" much more common than expected

    Chromothripsis is a form of genome instability by which one or a few chromosomes virtually "explode(s)" in a presumably single catastrophic event. According to current opinion, chromothripsis occurs at the beginning of tumor development and plays an important role in cancer onset. While the phenomen more

  • Exchange of Arms between Chromosomes Using Molecular Scissors

    The CRISPR/Cas molecular scissors work like a fine surgical instrument and can be used to modify genetic information in plants. The research teams of Professor Holger Puchta of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and Professor Andreas Houben from the Leibniz Institute of Plant Genetics and Crop more

  • Unstable chromosomes can promote breast cancer

    If chromosomes are unevenly distributed or otherwise altered during cell division, this normally damages the daughter cells and impairs their viability. Not in cancer cells, however, in which chromosome instability can actually confer a growth advantage under certain circumstances. Moreover, as scie more

  • Nobel Prize for Solving the End-Replication Problem

    The Nobel Assembly awarded this year's Nobel Prize in Medicine to Elizabeth H. Blackburn, Jack W. Szostak, and Carol W. Greider for the discovery of how chromosomes are protected by telomeres and the enzyme telomerase. With their ingenious genetic re more

  • Rare Variants of IFIH1 Protect Against Type-1 Diabetes

    Nejentsev and co-workers have found that rare alleles of all associated IFIH1 polymorphisms consistently protect from type-1 diabetes, whereas IFIH1 alleles carried by the majority of the population predispose to the disease. This observation suggest more
