Emerging roles of PLC{gamma}1 in endothelial biology
Phospholipase C 1 (PLC1) is a member of the PLC family that functions as signal transducer by hydrolyzing membrane lipid to generate second messengers. The unique protein structure of PLC1 confers a critical role as a direct effector of VEGFR2 and signaling mediated by other receptor tyrosine kinases. The distinct vascular phenotypes in PLC1-deficient animal models and the gain-of-function mutations of PLC1 found in human endothelial cancers point to a major physiological role of PLC1 in the endothelial system. In this review, we discuss aspects of physiological and molecular function centering around PLC1 in the context o...

Simone Biles and Why We All Get the ‘Twisties’ (Even If We Can’t Fly)
Well hello! I’m so glad you’re here. A version of this article also appeared in the It’s Not Just You newsletter. Sign up to get a new edition every Saturday. The supernova that is gymnast Simone Biles has been explaining a phenomenon called “the twisties” for we who are more earthbound creatures. It’s “not having your mind and body in sync,” she says. Not great for most people, but if you’re upsidedown and six or eight feet above the ground, that disconnection can be deadly. On July 30th, days after upending a truckload of other people’s expectations by pulling ...

Testosterone in women ’s athletics - podcast
Genetic advantages in sport tend to be celebrated, but that isn ’t always the case when it comes to women’s athletics. At the start of July, two female runners from Namibia, Christine Mboma and Beatrice Masilingi, were told they couldn’t compete in the 400m race in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics unless they reduced their naturally high testosterone hormone levels . Shivani Dave speaks to Katrina Karkazis, a professor ofsexuality, women ’s, and gender studies, specialising in ‘sex testing’ and sport regulations, about the rules that ban female athletes with naturally high testosteroneContinue re...
