📢🎉The work of #Bat1K is featured on the cover in the latest issue of @nature: “Six reference-quality #genomes reveal evolution of #bat adaptations” 🦇🧬 #bats Our thread 👇 on the paper:nature.com/articles/s4158… 📸: Olivier Farcy(1/n) Image
📢Have you ever wondered how 🦇 manage to do what they do? #bats have extraordinary adaptations, including powered #flight, laryngeal #echolocation, #vocal #learning and an exceptional #longevity with unique #immunity and resistance to #cancer! 📸: @DanielWhitby5 (2/n) Image
A #Bat1K team led by @Sonja_Vernes @EmmaTeeling1 @hillermich @TheGeneMyers has just published the raw genetic material that codes for these unique 🦇 adaptations and #superpowers in @nature! #bats #genomics #cool! (3/n) Image

Ahora que están de moda los #anticuerpos y todo el mundo quiere unos por Navidad... Alguna vez os habéis preguntado cómo se producen así de repente cuando te infectas o por qué son efectivos? Os cuento algunas cosas sobre ellos porque es un proceso que MOLA MUCHO⬇️
Los anticuerpos o inmunoglobulinas son producidos por los llamados linfocitos B. Estos son células que se generan en la médula ósea y tienen la capacidad de fabricar anticuerpos. Los anticuerpos son proteínas que se unen de forma específica a los patógenos y los bloquean.
Para que un anticuerpo se produzca tiene que existir un linfocito B que tenga un gen que codifique para ese anticuerpo con la secuencia exacta que haga que se una específicamente a su patógeno.

"The live SARS-like coronavirus SL-CoV-WIV1 has been isolated for the first time from bat droppings; and such virus has been confirmed to invade the host cells through the ACE2 of human beings..." ImageImageImage

Encodes an Extra Accessory Protein, ORFX, Involved in Modulation of the Host Immune Response. (2016) #ZhengLiShi #PeterDaszak #EcoHealth

In this study, we have developed a fast and cost-effective method
for reverse genetics of coronaviruses by combining two approaches developed by others..As the genomes can be divided into multiple short fragments, mutations can be introduced into individual
fragments easily. ImageImageImageImage

There's a seasonality to many respiratory #viruses. Will #SARSCoV2 [#COVID19] follow a similar pattern? We hope so BUT we don't really know. We know when air is humid / warm ➡️droplets gather more moisture ➡️too heavy to stay airborne / fall more quickly➡️transmission harder.
There was a significant correlation between #SARS cases & environmental temperature. A sharp rise or decrease in the environmental temperature related to the cold spell led to an increase of SARS cases because of the possible influence of the weather on the human immune system.
Plus the winter season has a profound effect on how human #genes work - this may explain why some illnesses are aggravated in the #winter. During cold, winter months, genes involved with #immunity & specifically #inflammation were more active. nature.com/articles/ncomm…

@jenbrea Hey! Yes several people spoke on that topic at the recent #ILADs conference I was at 👉 and remember this case history which found that a woman treated w/ antibiotics to target persistent #Bartonella had substantial improvement in EDS symptoms: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/P…
@jenbrea 2/2 As for #mast cell activation in response to persistent #pathogens...there is extensive literature on how a range of bacterial, viral and fungal pathogens can drive #MCAS-like symptoms 👉 for example: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/P…
@jenbrea 3/3 There is even a receptor common in #connective tissue who’s activity controls mast cell activation in response to bacterial signaling molecules that drive #biofilm formation: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/31278…

Breaking↘️ @US_FDA Finds Unexpected Antibiotic Resistance #AMR #Genes in ‘Gene-Edited’ Dehorned #Cattle: "The @Recombinetics gene-edited cattle do contain #DNA unnatural to cattle". independentsciencenews.org/news/fda-finds… @Act4AnimalsEU
@US_FDA @Recombinetics @Act4AnimalsEU "FDA’s demonstration that gene-editing techniques can introduce foreign DNA is likely to be seen as a significant blow to the no-regulation argument. It is also a powerful vindication of the #EU approach, which is to regulate gene-edited organisms as #GMOs."
@US_FDA @Recombinetics @Act4AnimalsEU This is one more and very compelling argument to be critical of #CRISPR technologies to genetically modify animals. We recently expressed more criticism here, with regard to using gene editing to prevent puberty in #pigs: allianceforscience.cornell.edu/blog/2019/07/a…
