Mitochondrial Disease Signaling Network Discovered

Children’s Hospital researchers recently identified a network of signaling molecules that acts like a “fuse box,” regulating the effects of defective energy flow in mitochondrial respiratory chain diseases — a set of difficult-to-treat genetic-based energy disorders. Using that knowledge, they showed that a form of vitamin B3 partially restores normal functioning in cells taken from patients with mitochondrial disease.

Male-biased autosomal effect of 16p13.11 copy number variation in neurodevelopmental disorders.

Copy number variants (CNVs) at chromosome 16p13.11 have been associated with a range of neurodevelopmental disorders including autism, ADHD, intellectual disability and schizophrenia. Significant sex differences in prevalence, course and severity have been described for a number of these conditions but the biological and environmental factors underlying such sex-specific features remain unclear.
