Human Cells a Chimera of Ancient Life

Human Cells a Chimera of Ancient Life | Laboratory | Scoop.it

Despite eons of mingling inside our cells, gene networks we’ve inherited from primitive, singled-celled ancestors have stayed separate. Our cells remain chimeras, a hybrid fusion of unrelated creatures. The genes date from an event 1.5 billion years ago, when two kinds of simple cells, neither having a nucleus or cellular membrane, shacked up and created an entirely new form of life: eukaryotes.

Let Them Eat Dirt

Let Them Eat Dirt | Laboratory | Scoop.it

A new study suggests early exposure to microbes is essential for normal immune development, supporting the so-called “hygiene hypothesis” which states that lack of such exposure leads to an increased risk of autoimmune diseases. Specifically, the study found that early-life microbe exposure decreases the number of inflammatory immune cells in the lungs and colon, lowering susceptibility to asthma and inflammatory bowel diseases later in life. The finding, published in Science, may help explain why there has been a rise in autoimmune diseases in sterile, antibiotic-saturated developed countries.

Microbial exposure during early life has persistent effects on natural killer T cell function, Science, doi:10.1126/science.1219328, 2012.

AUSTRALIA: Paralytic shellfish toxin may have spread southward

AUSTRALIA: Paralytic shellfish toxin may have spread southward | Laboratory | Scoop.it

The paralytic shellfish toxin that affected Tasmania's east coast and forced the closure of fishing grounds from Ansons Bay to Marion Bay may have moved southward. Tests are being conducted to figure out how far the toxin has spread.

So far, the fisheries affected are mussel, rock lobster, abalone, and scallop. Commercial season never even took off.

Acting Deputy Secretary of the Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment Wes Ford assured that the closures are necessary to protect public health, Tasmania Examiner reports.

"Laboratory analysis from the affected area on the east coast showed that seven out of 10 rock lobster gut samples returned results above the health limits," Ford said. "Similarly, a number of the abalone samples returned readings of paralytic shellfish toxin above the health limits."

The government remains at a loss insofar as how the toxic algae species of dinoflagellate arrived at Tasmania and why it is thriving, stated Ford.

"Certainly, it's the first time that this species of algae has produced a toxic bloom in Tasmania," he said, ABC reports.

It first showed up earlier in November in a mussel farm on the east coast and has since spread. Shellfish farmers were the first to be affected, and the paralytic shellfish toxin outbreak is hitting them right as the spawning period approaches – and right before the period of peak demand at Christmas, oyster growers say.

Meanwhile, customers worry that their seafood may not be safe to eat, according to rock lobster processors. But they assure that there are no rock lobsters from that area on sale, as the season did not open there.

But there is still recreational fishing to worry about. Director of Public Health Roscoe Taylor warned consumers to stay away from the gut of rock lobster or the gut of abalone harvested from the east coast between Marion Bay and Eddystone Point, plus oysters, clams or mussels taken from the area recreationally. Periwinkles, sea urchins or crabs from this area should also be avoided.

For now, rock lobster from the south, west and north-west coasts is filling the gap and might be enough to satisfy demand come Christmas.

John Sansom from the Rock Lobster Fishermen's Association and the rest of the industry worry the toxin could keep spreading and affecting more fisheries.

"The worst case scenario at the moment is if rock lobsters test positive to PST outside the boundaries we have at the moment, that we'll have to extend the closures," he said.

On the other hand, University of Tasmania biologist Chris Bolch thinks the toxin is on its way out.

"All the data suggests we saw a peak probably about four weeks ago and that it's dissipating," he said.

Still, the fishing grounds in question may not be open for harvesting again for weeks.

Fellowship at FDA for plant molecular biologist - apply NOW

Fellowship at FDA for plant molecular biologist - apply NOW | Laboratory | Scoop.it

FDA’s Division of Biotechnology and GRAS Notice Review is looking for an ORISE fellow with qualifications in plant biology, molecular biology, and other appropriate fields to provide research support (data collection and analysis; non-laboratory) to our Biotechnology Consultation Program. 

 

FDA’s Division of Biotechnology and GRAS Notice Review (DBGNR) is responsible for the evaluation of safety and nutritional assessments, which are submitted to FDA by developers of new plant varieties intended for food and feed uses.  To this end, DBGNR must keep abreast of advances in the science of genetic engineering as well as of industry and academic trends in the new plant variety development, including methodology and traits. This project involves training in the evaluation of biotechnology safety and nutritional assessments under FDA’s Biotechnology Consultation Program.  The participant will be expected to use this knowledge to identify and analyze the impacts of recent scientific advances and plant breeding trends to the Agency’s biotechnology policy and to provide science-based support for program improvement or further research directions.

 

For more specific information please contact Carrie.McMahon@fda.hhs.gov.

 

We are actively seeking candidates and hope to fill the position before the end of July.

Scientists engineer bacteria to kill others

Scientists engineer bacteria to kill others | Laboratory | Scoop.it

Scientists have found a new way of killing Pseudomonas aeruginosa, an opportunistic species that thrives wherever humans are weak. It commonly infects hospital patients whose immune systems have taken a hit. It targets any tissue it can get a foothold on – lungs, bladders, guts – and it often causes fatal infections. To seek and destroy this threat, researchers used the common lab bacterium Escherichia coli as a sacrificial pawn.

Is bacterial fatty acid synthesis a valid target for antibacterial drug discovery?

Is bacterial fatty acid synthesis a valid target for antibacterial drug discovery? | Laboratory | Scoop.it

The emergence of resistance against most current drugs emphasizes the need to develop new approaches to control bacterial pathogens, particularly Staphylococcus aureus. Bacterial fatty acid synthesis is one such target that is being actively pursued by several research groups to develop anti-Staphylococcal agents. Recently, the wisdom of this approach has been challenged based on the ability of a Gram-positive bacterium to incorporate extracellular fatty acids and thus circumvent the inhibition of de novo fatty acid synthesis. The generality of this conclusion has been challenged, and there is enough diversity in the enzymes and regulation of fatty acid synthesis in bacteria to conclude that there is not a single organism that can be considered typical and representative of bacteria as a whole. We are left without a clear resolution to this ongoing debate and await new basic research to define the pathways for fatty acid uptake and that determine the biochemical and genetic mechanisms for the regulation of fatty acid synthesis in Gram-positive bacteria. These crucial experiments will determine whether diversity in the control of this important pathway accounts for the apparently different responses of Gram-positive bacteria to the inhibition of de novo fatty acid synthesis in presence of extracellular fatty acid supplements.
