Stem Cell Resilience Model of Oculomotor Neurons a Boost for ALS Research

Researchers at KI have successfully created neurons that control our eye movements – oculomotor neurons – from embryonic stem cells. The cell culture system can be used to understand how ALS affects neurons. Image credit: Karolinska Institute



Alzheimer's Protein Segment Plays the Hero in the Mouse Brain


The amyloid precursor protein has always been vilified as a major cause of Alzheimer’s disease. However, a recent has shown how it has an extended role in brain signaling that can prevent the development of Alzheimer’s disease in mice.


Insights Into Genetic Diversity of the Lynx


Little is known about the biology and the genetic status of the Caucasian Lynx (Lynx lynx dinniki), a subspecies of the Eurasian lynx distributed across portions of Turkey, the Caucasus region and Iran. To collect baseline genetic, ecological, and behavioural data and assist future conservation efforts, a team of scientists from the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research (Leibniz-IZW) collected data and samples in a region of Anatolian Turkey over several years.


Single Gut Bacteria Enterotype Associates Multiple Types of Inflammatory Bowel Disease


Researchers who sequenced the fecal samples of over 3,000 healthy volunteers recently described the so-called B2 enterotype, which is deficient in some anti-inflammatory bacteria. Today, they published more data, showing the high prevalence of this particular enterotype across multiple disease diagnoses.
