Stem Cells Reveal How Illness-Linked Genetic Variation Affects Neurons
A genetic variation linked to schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and severe depression wreaks havoc on connections among neurons in the developing brain, a team of researchers reports.
Cell's Recycling Center Implicated in Division Decisions
Researchers at The Johns Hopkins University have now identified a mechanism that overrides the cells’ warning signals, enabling cancers to continue to divide even without a robust blood supply.
Schizophrenia-Associated Gene Variation Affects Brain Cell Development
Johns Hopkins researchers have begun to connect the dots between a schizophrenia-linked genetic variation and its effect on the developing brain.
Signals Found That Recruit Host Animals’ Cells, Enabling Breast Cancer Metastasis
Working with mice, Johns Hopkins researchers report they have identified chemical signals that certain breast cancers use to recruit two types of normal cells needed for the cancers’ spread.
New Type Of Protein Action Found To Regulate Development
Johns Hopkins researchers report they have figured out how the aptly named protein Botch blocks the signaling protein called Notch, which helps regulate development.
