Proposed job cuts at Cadent Gas are irresponsible and unnecessary
Plans to cut up to 450 jobs at Cadent Gas are totally unnecessary and must be urgently reconsidered, says UNISON today (Tuesday). As part of a consultation that has begun this week, the company announced that roles in the customer services, technical, scheduling and dispatch, repair planning and supervisory teams will go, despite past assurances by the company. Cadent had previously flagged a potential restructure of management posts, acknowledging that the business had too many. But plans shared with UNISON reveal that instead it’s the lowest paid in the company that will be affected, with a...

Drug testing approach uncovers effective combination for treating small cell lung cancer
(NIH/National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS)) NIH researchers have identified and tested a drug combination that exploits a weakness in small cell lung cancer, an aggressive cancer. They targeted a vulnerability in cancer cell reproduction, increasing replication stress ¬ ¬ -- a hallmark of out-of-control cell growth in many cancers that damages DNA and forces cancer cells to constantly repair themselves. In a small trial, the drug duo shrank tumors in SCLC patients. The team's findings appear April 12 in Cancer Cell. (Source: EurekAlert! - Cancer)

This is contrary to conventional wisdom that says mammalian cells fare better when there is more sugar to fuel their activities. Because ultra-low glucose environments do not allow other cell types to proliferate, the team could produce pure cultures of satellite cells, potentially a significant boost for biomedical research.

Incorporation of a nucleoside analog maps genome repair sites in postmitotic human neurons
Neurons are the longest-lived cells in our bodies and lack DNA replication, which makes them reliant on a limited repertoire of DNA repair mechanisms to maintain genome fidelity. These repair mechanisms decline with age, but we have limited knowledge of how genome instability emerges and what strategies neurons and other long-lived cells may have evolved to protect their genomes over the human life span. A targeted sequencing approach in human embryonic stem cell–induced neurons shows that, in neurons, DNA repair is enriched at well-defined hotspots that protect essential genes. These hotspots are enriched with histo...

Early developmental asymmetries in cell lineage trees in living individuals
Mosaic mutations can be used to track cell lineages in humans. We used cell cloning to analyze embryonic cell lineages in two living individuals and a postmortem human specimen. Of 10 reconstructed postzygotic divisions, none resulted in balanced contributions of daughter lineages to tissues. In both living individuals, one of two lineages from the first cleavage was dominant across tissues, with 90% frequency in blood. We propose that the efficiency of DNA repair contributes to lineage imbalance. Allocation of lineages in postmortem brain correlated with anterior-posterior axis, associating lineage history with cell fate ...
