Nuclear lamina remodelling and its implications for human disease.
The intermediate filament A- and B-type lamins are key architectural components of the nuclear lamina, a proteinaceous meshwork that lies underneath the inner nuclear membrane. In the past decade, many different monogenic human diseases have been lin

The Human Gut Phage Community and Its Implications for Health and Disease.
In this review, we assess our current understanding of the role of bacteriophages infecting the human gut bacterial community in health and disease. In general, bacteriophages contribute to the structure of their microbial communities by driving host

Regulation of the adrenocortical stem cell niche: implications for disease.
Stem cells are endowed with the potential for self-renewal and multipotency. Pluripotent embryonic stem cells have an early role in the formation of the three germ layers (ectoderm, mesoderm and endoderm), whereas adult tissue stem cells and progenit

Crystal structure of NOD2 and its implications in human disease.
Nucleotide-binding oligomerization domain-containing protein 2 (NOD2), a member of the NOD-like receptors family, are crucial for innate immune responses. Mutations of NOD2 have been associated with chronic inflammatory disorders such as Crohn's dise

Hormonal regulation of c-KIT receptor and its ligand: implications for human infertility?
The c-KIT, a tyrosine kinase receptor, and its ligand the stem cell factor (SCF) play an important role in the production of male and female gametes. The interaction of SCF with c-KIT is required for germ cell survival and growth, and abnormalities i

Molecular regulation of autophagy and its implications for metabolic diseases.
Autophagy is an evolutionarily conserved cellular programme for the turnover of organelles, proteins, and other macromolecules, involving the lysosomal degradation pathway. Emerging evidence suggests that autophagy can play a central role in human me

Treg biology and its implications for diseases.
Nuclear receptors in the cell play essential roles in environmental sensing, differentiation, development, homeostasis,and metabolism and are thus highly conserved across multiple species. The anti-inflammatory role of nuclear receptors in immune cel

The discovery of human of GLUD2 glutamate dehydrogenase and its implications for cell function in health and disease.
While the evolutionary changes that led to traits unique to humans remain unclear, there is increasing evidence that enrichment of the human genome through DNA duplication processes may have contributed to traits such as bipedal locomotion, higher co

The RNA Modification N6-methyladenosine and Its Implications in Human Disease.
Impaired gene regulation lies at the heart of many disorders, including developmental diseases and cancer. Furthermore, the molecular pathways that control gene expression are often the target of cellular parasites, such as viruses. Gene expression i
