Perturbance analysis of nuclear determination in Tetrahymena I: background, rationale, and illustrative example, employing temperature responses

Differentiation; Research in Biological Diversity
D L NanneyS S Chen


A model based on comparative considerations, is presented for the nuclear determination of mating type in Tetrahymena thermophila. The model proposes a system of three binary control elements, each capable of stable persistence in one of two states. A general method is proposed for evaluating the model and for assigning particular mating types to particular compound states. Preliminary assignments of mating types are made from the responses of nuclei to temperature differentials.

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.

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.

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.
