Emergence of allosteric drug-resistance mutations: New challenges for allosteric drug discovery
13 February 2020
Here, we review the emergence of allosteric drug-resistance mutations with an emphasis on examples covering clinically important therapeutic targets, including Breakpoint cluster region-Abelson tyrosine kinase (Bcr-Abl), Akt kinase [also called Protein Kinase B (PKB)], isocitrate dehydrogenase (IDH), MAPK/ERK kinase (MEK), and SRC homology 2 domain-containing phosphatase 2 (SHP2).

Stress in small children separated from their parents may alter genes Experts in the emotional needs of small children say increased levels of the stress hormone cortisol in babies and small children who are separated from their parents, especially their mothers, could have a long-term genetic impact on future generations. In a commentary published by the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine, the authors say that several studies show that small children cared for outside the home, especially in poor quality care and for 30 or more hours per week, have higher levels of cortisol than children at home.

Cancer-Causing Culprits Will Be Caught By Their DNA Fingerprints Causes of cancer are being catalogued by a huge international study revealing the genetic fingerprints of DNA-damaging processes that drive cancer development. Researchers from the Wellcome Sanger Institute, Duke-NUS Medical School Singapore, University of California San Diego School of Medicine, the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, and their collaborators around the world have achieved the most detailed list of these genetic fingerprints to date, providing clues as to how each cancer developed.

How astronauts will make their own drugs in space NASA’s Translational Research Institute for Space Health (TRISH) has funded innovative projects seeking to better protect astronauts' health during deep space missions of three years or more. Two of the six projects focus on ‘just-in-time’ medications, which allow drugs to be manufactured on-demand and on-board the spacecraft – a necessity given that most commercially available medicines have shelf lives of two years or less.
