Novel mechanisms regulate inflammatory skin diseases

Investigators have identified a novel role for an intracellular trafficking pathway in regulating epidermal developmental processes, which could serve as a future therapeutic target for inflammatory skin diseases, according ...

Study finds high levels of PFAS in school uniforms

In yet another example of the prevalence of the hazardous chemicals known as PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) in consumer products, industrial products and textiles, researchers have found notably high levels in ...

How protein aggregation occurs in cells

Published in the Molecular Cell journal on July 19, a research study out of the Hatters Laboratory showed inappropriate protein aggregation is linked to poor outcomes for cell health and survival—especially in neurons in ...

Studying diseases with better delivery of gene-editing tools

Stem cells can be used to study the effects of disease on numerous tissue types due to their pluripotency, or ability to produce cells of any type. But using gene-editing tools with them can be challenging, according to Xiaojun ...

Landing therapeutic genes safely in the human genome

Many future gene and cell therapies to treat diseases like cancer, rare genetic and other conditions could be enhanced in their efficacy, persistence, and predictability by so-called "genomic safe harbors (GSHs)." These are ...

Enzyme treatment of skin samples improves microbiome analysis

Healthy skin has a bacterial shield to protect against germs: the microbiome. This complex assembly of microorganisms was previously believed to be difficult to decipher. A team of researchers has now succeeded in using the ...
