Rabbit genome analysis reveals a polygenic basis for phenotypic change during domestication

Science

Aug 30, 2014

Miguel CarneiroLeif Andersson

Abstract

The genetic changes underlying the initial steps of animal domestication are still poorly understood. We generated a high-quality reference genome for the rabbit and compared it to resequencing data from populations of wild and domestic rabbits. We identified more than 100 selective swe...read more

Neurotoxicity, Inflammation & Neuroprotection

The end result of the inflammatory process, neurotoxicity and/or neuroprotection, is a function of the fine balance between the two cellular systems, i.e., of the complex signaling relationships between anti-inflammatory neuroprotective factors (neurotrophins and other chemical mediators) and proinflammatory neurotoxic factors (tnf, free radicals, certain cytokines, etc). Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to neurotoxicity, inflammation and neuroprotection.
