Pancreas divisum has been associated with idiopathic pancreatitis. However, the causal association remains controversial. To study the gene mutations in patients with pancreas divisum presenting with idiopathic pancreatitis. All consecutive patients with pancreas divisum presenting with recurrent pancreatitis were included in the study. Fifty healthy volunteers, 30 patients with chronic pancreatitis, and 14 patients with idiopathic recurrent acute pancreatitis without pancreas divisum served as controls. Patients and controls were tested for cationic trypsiongen gene, CFTR gene and SPINK1 gene mutations. Of the 12 patients with pancreas divisum and idiopathic pancreatitis, 4 had SPINK1 N34S gene mutation-3 were heterozygous and 1 was homozygous, and 1 had P55S mutation compared with 1 of 50 healthy controls with N34S mutation (P=0.001). The frequency of SPINK1 mutation was similar among patients with pancreas divisum and pancreatitis (41.6%), chronic pancreatitis (43.3%), and recurrent acute pancreatitis without pancreas divisum (35.7%). Five patients with pancreas divisum had polymorphisms in the CFTR gene. Patients with pancreas divisum presenting with idiopathic pancreatitis had a higher frequency of SPINK1 gene mutation com...Continue Reading

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.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

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.
