Shifts in the microbiome impact tissue repair, regeneration
A definitive link between the makeup of the microbiome, the host immune response, and an organism’s ability to heal itself has been confirmed by scientists.

The sound of a healthy reef
A new study will help researchers understand the ways that marine animal larvae use sound as a cue to settle on coral reefs. The study has determined that sounds created by adult fish and invertebrates may not travel far enough for larvae -- which hatch in open ocean -- to hear them, meaning that the larvae might rely on other means to home in on a reef system.

Mechanical force triggers gene expression by stretching chromatin
How genes in our DNA are expressed into traits within a cell is a complicated mystery with many players, the main suspects being chemical. However, a new study has demonstrated that external mechanical force can directly regulate gene expression. The study also identified the pathway that conveys the force from the outside of the cell into the nucleus.

ESC launches novel paper on tackling cardiac toxicity of anticancer therapies
(European Society of Cardiology) The European Society of Cardiology has launched a novel position paper, under the auspices of its Committee for Practice Guidelines, on tackling the cardiac toxicity of anticancer therapies. The cardio-oncology paper is published online today in European Heart Journal and on the ESC website.

Moderate physical activity linked with 50 percent reduction in cardiovascular death in over-65s
(European Society of Cardiology) Moderate physical activity is associated with a greater than 50 percent reduction in cardiovascular death in over-65s, according to research presented at ESC Congress 2016 today. The 12-year study in nearly 2,500 adults aged 65 to 74 years found that moderate physical activity reduced the risk of an acute cardiovascular event by more than 30 percent. High levels of physical activity led to greater risk reductions.

Activity tracker uses heart rate to personalize amount of exercise needed to prevent death
(European Society of Cardiology) A novel activity tracker has been developed that uses heart rate data to personalize the amount of exercise needed to reduce the risk of death from cardiovascular disease. The science behind the tracker is presented for the first time today at ESC Congress 2016.

In some genetic cases of microcephaly, stem cells fail to launch

In a very severe, genetic form of microcephaly, stem cells in the brain fail to divide, according to a new Columbia University Medical Center study that may provide important clues to understanding how the Zika virus affects the developing brain.

Yale team discovers how Zika virus causes fetal brain damage

Infection by the Zika virus diverts a key protein necessary for neural cell division in the developing human fetus, thereby causing the birth defect microcephaly, a team of Yale scientists reported Aug. 24 in the journal Cell Reports.

Scientists uncover the way a common cell enzyme alerts the body to invading bacteria

Biomedical investigators at Cedars-Sinai have identified an enzyme found in all human cells that alerts the body to invading bacteria and jump-starts the immune system.

Probing how CRISPR-Cas9 works: Study examines DNA targeting dynamics in live cells
A study in The Journal of Cell Biology by scientists at the University of Massachusetts Medical School reveals important new details about the inner workings of the CRISPR-Cas9 machinery in live cells that may have implications for the development of therapeutics that use the powerful gene editing tool.
