African American men are more likely than any other racial group to die from prostate cancer. The contribution of acquired genomic variation to this racial disparity is largely unknown, as genomic from Africa is lacking....
AIMS/HYPOTHESIS: Pancreatic beta cells secrete insulin to maintain glucose homeostasis, and beta cell failure is a hallmark of type 2 diabetes. Glucose triggers insulin secretion in beta cells via oxidative mitochondrial...
Major funding boost means rare cancer patients can access precision medicine trials in their home state
Post-doctoral fellow Dr David Herrmann from Garvan’s Cancer Division will work on a new approach to inhibiting one of Australia’s most deadly cancers.
OBJECTIVES: Readily apparent cyclin E1 expression occurs in 50% of HGSOC, but only half are linked to 19q12 locus amplification. The amplified/cyclin E1(hi) subset has intact BRCA1/2, unfavorable outcome, and is potentia...
Cardiac differentiation of human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) requires orchestration of dynamic gene regulatory networks during stepwise fate transitions but often generates immature cell types that do not fully recapi...
OBJECTIVE: ATL1103 is a second-generation antisense oligomer targeting the human growth hormone (GH) receptor. This phase 2 randomised, open-label, parallel-group study assessed the potential of ATL1103 as a treatment fo...
Excess caloric intake results in increased fat accumulation and an increase in energy expenditure via diet-induced adaptive thermogenesis; however, the underlying mechanisms controlling these processes are unclear. Here ...
