The angucycline antibiotic jadomycin B (JdB) produced by Streptomyces venezuelae has been found here to induce complex survival responses in Streptomyces coelicolor at subinhibitory concentration. The receptor for JdB was identified as a "pseudo" gamma-butyrolactone receptor, ScbR2, which was shown to bind two previously unidentified target promoters, those of redD (redDp) and adpA (adpAp), thus directly regulating undecylprodigiosin (Red) production and morphological differentiation, respectively. Because AdpA also directly regulates the expression of redD, ScbR2, AdpA, and RedD together form a feed-forward loop controlling both differentiation and Red production phenotypes. Different signal strengths (i.e., JdB concentrations) were shown to induce the two different phenotypes by modulating the relative transcription levels of adpA vs. redD. The induction of morphological differentiation and endogenous antibiotic production by exogenous antibiotic exemplifies an important survival strategy more sophisticated than the induction of antibiotic resistance.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

Hereditary Sensory Autonomic Neuropathies are a group of inherited neurodegenerative disorders characterized clinically by loss of sensation and autonomic dysfunction. Here is the latest research on these neuropathies.

Separation Anxiety

Separation anxiety is a type of anxiety disorder that involves excessive distress and anxiety with separation. This may include separation from places or people to which they have a strong emotional connection with. It often affects children more than adults.

Neural Activity: Imaging

Imaging of neural activity in vivo has developed rapidly recently with the advancement of fluorescence microscopy, including new applications using miniaturized microscopes (miniscopes). This feed follows the progress in this growing field.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule.
