Prentis urges Labour to commit to a ‘new deal’ for public services
This year’s Labour conference – online, as befits the times – marked two very special speeches: the last by Dave Prentis as UNISON general secretary, and the first by Keir Starmer as Labour leader. Both men paid powerful tribute to the public sector workers who have kept the UK on its feet during the COVID-19 pandemic. And Mr Starmer said it was time for Labour “to get serious about winning” and repair the damage done to public services by a decade of Tory government. The first of this year’s very different, COVID-affected party conferences started on Saturday, under the branding of Labo...

How Cancer Shaped Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg ’s Life and Work
The name Ruth Bader Ginsburg became almost synonymous with strength and stamina as she rose to prominence in judicial and feminist circles throughout her long career. Famously nicknamed the Notorious RBG and known for her grueling fitness regimen, the late Supreme Court justice also struggled with cancer and other health issues for the better part of her time on the bench — culminating with her death on Sept. 18 at the age of 87 of complications from metastatic pancreatic cancer. Ginsburg’s health issues became public in 1999, six years after her appointment to the Supreme Court, when she had surgery for early-...

UCLA-led team of scientists discovers why we need sleep
Prolonged sleep deprivation can lead to severe health problems in humans and other animals. But why is sleep so vital to our health? A UCLA-led team of scientists has made a major advance in answering  this question and has shown for the first time that a dramatic change in the purpose of sleep occurs at the age of about 2-and-a-half.Before that age, the brain grows very rapidly. During REM sleep, when vivid dreams occur, the young brain is busy building and strengthening synapses — the structures that connect neurons to one another and allow them to communicate.“Don’t wake babies up during REM sleep...

Size and sleep: New research reveals why little things sleep longer
(Santa Fe Institute) Using data from humans and other mammals, a team of scientists including researchers from the Santa Fe Institute has developed one of the first quantitative models that explains why sleep times across species and during development decrease as brains get bigger. Crucially, the model identifies a sharp transition at around 2.4 years of age, where sleep patterns change in humans as the primary purpose of sleep shifts from reorganization, which is essentially learning, to repair.

The hallmarks of cancer are also the hallmarks of wound healing
The Hanahan and Weinberg "hallmarks of cancer" papers provide a useful structure for considering the various mechanisms driving cancer progression, and the same might be useful for wound healing. In this Review, we highlight how tissue repair and cancer share cellular and molecular processes that are regulated in a wound but misregulated in cancer. From sustained proliferative signaling and the activation of invasion and angiogenesis to the promoting role of inflammation, there are many obvious parallels through which one process can inform the other. For some hallmarks, the parallels are more obscure. We propose...

Degradation of 5hmC-marked stalled replication forks by APE1 causes genomic instability
Synthetic lethality between poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) inhibition and BRCA deficiency is exploited to treat breast and ovarian tumors. However, resistance to PARP inhibitors (PARPis) is common. To identify potential resistance mechanisms, we performed a genome-wide RNAi screen in BRCA2-deficient mouse embryonic stem cells and validation in KB2P1.21 mouse mammary tumor cells. We found that resistance to multiple PARPi emerged with reduced expression of TET2 (ten-eleven translocation), which promotes DNA demethylation by oxidizing 5-methylcytosine (5mC) to 5-hydroxymethycytosine (5hmC) and other products. TET2 knockd...

Type I and III interferons disrupt lung epithelial repair during recovery from viral infection
Excessive cytokine signaling frequently exacerbates lung tissue damage during respiratory viral infection. Type I (IFN-α and IFN-β) and III (IFN-) interferons are host-produced antiviral cytokines. Prolonged IFN-α and IFN-β responses can lead to harmful proinflammatory effects, whereas IFN- mainly signals in epithelia, thereby inducing localized antiviral immunity. In this work, we show that IFN signaling interferes with lung repair during influenza recovery in mice, with IFN- driving these effects most potently. IFN-induced protein p53 directly reduces epithelial proliferation and differentiation, wh...
