1,000-year-old remains in Finland may be non-binary iron age leader

DNA suggests body buried in feminine attire with swords had Klinefelter syndrome, researchers sayModern analysis of a 1,000-year-old grave in Finland challenges long-held beliefs about gender roles in ancient societies, and may suggest non-binary people were not only accepted but respected members of their communities, researchers have said.According to a peer-reviewedstudy in the European Journal of Archaeology, DNA analysis of remains in a late iron age grave at Suontaka Vesitorninm äki in Hattula, southern Finland, may have belonged to a high-status non-binary person.Continue reading...

Patients with chromosomal abnormalities are at risk for numerous neurosurgical pathologies, given the broad impact and multisystem involvement of these disorders. Down syndrome (trisomy 21), Edwards syndrome (trisomy 18), Patau syndrome (trisomy 13), Klinefelter syndrome (47,XXY), and velocardiofacial or DiGeorge syndrome (22q11.2 deletion) are particularly associated with neurosurgical concerns. Given the heterogeneity of concerns and presentations, these patients benefit from multidisciplinary care provided by teams familiar with their specific syndrome.

Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTSex disparities in cardiac homeostasis and heart disease are well documented, with differences attributed to actions of sex hormones. However, studies have indicated sex chromosomes act outside of the gonads to function without mediation by gonadal hormones. Here, we performed transcriptional and proteomics profiling to define differences between male and female mouse hearts. We demonstrate, contrary to current dogma, cardiac sex disparities are controlled not only by sex hormones but also through a sex-chromosome ...
