Interspecies transfer of mitochondria in Paramecium aurelia

Molecular & General Genetics : MGG
G H Beale, J K Knowles


Erythromycin-resistant mitochondria from species 1, 5 and 7 of P. aurelia were injected into erythromycin-sensitive paramecia of each of the same three species. Mitochondria from species 1 and 5 were successfully transferred to all three species, but species 7 mitochondria failed to develop in species 1 and 5. Minor differences were indicated in the frequency of successful transfers of species 1 mitochondria into species 1 and 5 cells. From studies on the transferability of mitochondria from "hybrid" cells, containing mitochondria from one species and nuclei from another, it was concluded that mitochondrial compatibility was mainly under control of the nuclear genome, with a possible minor control also by the mitochondrial genome.

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.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.

Pediculosis pubis

Pediculosis pubis is a disease caused by a parasitic insect known as Pthirus pubis, which infests human pubic hair, as well as other areas with hair including eye lashes. Here is the latest research.

Genetic Screens in iPSC-derived Brain Cells

Genetic screening is a critical tool that can be employed to define and understand gene function and interaction. This feed focuses on genetic screens conducted using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived brain cells. It also follows CRISPR-Cas9 approaches to generating genetic mutants as a means of understanding the effect of genetics on phenotype.
