SCNT immune reaction
Stanford researchers find that genetic differences in mitochondria contained in egg cells used in a process known as nuclear transfer can prompt rejection by the immune system in mice.
Blistering skin disease may be treatable with ‘therapeutic reprogramming,’ researchers say
In laboratory experiments, researchers were able to correct a collagen defect — the source of a blistering skin disease — in stem cells made from patients.
An enzyme that fixes broken DNA sometimes destroys it instead, researchers find
The discovery of a new mechanism of DNA damage could offer new insights into cancer and neurodegenerative disease, and also reveals a surprising role for messenger RNA, the molecule that forms the genetic transcript.

Of mice and men: Researchers compare mammals’ genomes to aid human clinical research
Comparing the human genome with the mouse genome reveals both shared general principles and important differences in how each species’ genes are regulated.
‘Big data’ approach helps pinpoint possible new stent drug to prevent heart attacks
Replacing the current drug used to coat artery-opening stents with a drug more targeted to the actual cause of stent disease could reduce blood clots and heart attacks, researchers say.
