Gene Set Isolated in Transformation of Skin Cells into Embryonic Tissues

A team of developmental biologists identified a set of five genes that is capable of transforming skin cells into pluripotent stem cells and then into all three of the cell types that comprise the early embryo: the embryo itself, the placenta, and the extra-embryonic tissues, such as the umbilical cord. More...

Image: New research shows genetic risk factors for adult-onset asthma were largely a subset of the genetic risk for childhood-onset asthma but with overall smaller effects, suggesting a greater role for non-genetic risk factors in adult-onset asthma (Photo courtesy of Shutterstock).

Adult Asthma Genes Are Subset of Childhood-Onset Disease

A large asthma-related genome-wide association study found that the genes involved in adult-onset asthma were largely a subset of genes associated with the childhood-onset disease. More...
