Genomic Changes Within a Generation in Fish

Two ecotypes of threespine stickleback fish can be found in and around Lake Constance. Each has developed under the influence of its specific habitat: lake stickleback on the left and river stickleback on the right. The two ecotypes differ in numerous morphological and behavioral traits; most striking are the differences in body size and in the breeding coloration of the males.

Inhibiting Glutamine Metabolism Could Be an Effective Therapeutic Strategy for ARID1A-Mutant Ovarian Cancer

News

According to a new study, mutations that inactivate the ARID1A gene in ovarian cancer increase utilization of the glutamine amino acid making cancer cells dependent on glutamine metabolism. The researchers also demonstrated that pharmacologic inhibition of glutamine metabolism could be an effective strategy for treating ARID1A-mutant ovarian cancer.
