Up4A is a novel purine regulator in the colon [Neuroscience]

PNAS Early Edition Articles - Thu, 10/23/2014 - 12:12
Enteric purinergic motor neurotransmission, acting through P2Y1 receptors (P2Y1R), mediates inhibitory neural control of the intestines. Recent studies have shown that NAD+ and ADP ribose better meet criteria for enteric inhibitory neurotransmitters in colon than ATP or ADP. Here we report that human and murine colon muscles also release uridine...

IRAK1 mutation defines PEL [Microbiology]

PNAS Early Edition Articles - Thu, 10/23/2014 - 12:12
Primary effusion lymphoma (PEL) is an AIDS-defining cancer. All PELs carry Kaposi sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV). X chromosome-targeted sequencing of PEL identified 34 common missense mutations in 100% of cases. This included a Phe196Ser change in the interleukin 1 receptor-associated kinase 1 (IRAK1). The mutation was verified in primary PEL exudates....

The sea level rise over the past ~200 years shows no evidence of acceleration, which is necessary to [...]
