UCF Scientists Use Gene Editing Tech to Develop New Screening Tool for Parkinson's Disease

Via medresearch 

A team of researchers at the University of Central Florida is using CRISPR Cas9, the breakthrough gene-editing technology, to develop a new screening tool for Parkinson's disease. The technology allows scientists in the lab to “light up” and then monitor a brain protein called alpha-synuclein that has been associated with Parkinson's.

“Alpha-synuclein is a protein that is normally found in the brain. We all have it,” said Burnett School of Biomedical Sciences doctoral student Levi Adams, one of the lead researchers on the project. “But for some reason, when you have Parkinson's the levels become abnormal. So, if we can monitor this protein in the cell, we can start to measure what causes it to go up and also what treatments can cause it to go down.”

The team published its findings in the Scientific Reports journal.

Using the CRISPR technique, the Burnett team edited the alpha-synuclein gene and inserted a luminescent tag made from proteins that causes fireflies to light up. Every time the cell creates the alpha-synuclein protein, the tag gives off a light. That reaction “makes it much easier to measure,” Adams said. “More light means an increased level of alpha-synuclein, which would be considered a diseased state.”

“If we take one of these modified cells and treat it with a particular drug, if it doesn't produce light anymore, then this means the drug is a potential treatment for this disease,” doctoral student Sambuddha Basu said.

'Private Snafu vs. Malaria Mike' [1944]
This cartoon video was used to educate soldiers in malaria prevention during World War II. Malaria Mike is a mosquito who repeatedly attacks Private Snafu in an effort to infect the soldier. The mosquito is temporarily foiled because of Snafu's use of clothing, repellent, and mosquito netting.

Local Health Problems [New York in 1942]

This film illustrates the health and sanitary pressures created for a rural area of New York State when the federal government establishes a large ordnance depot in Seneca County and issues a call for thousands of construction and other workers. Because the county and local towns are ill-equipped to handle the influx, the state steps in to test wells, cleaning up or capping them as necessary; close filthy privies and build new ones; truck clean water to the area; send nurses to workers' homes (which include tents, cars, and old school buses); and eventually establish a modern trailer camp with trailers provided by the Farm Security Administration. The trailers are heated and have small kitchens, and central facilities are provided for showering and laundry. A child-care cooperative is set up as well.

African-American, White, Latino Children Have Different Food Allergen Profiles

via medresearch

Researchers have found that both African-American and Latino children have significantly higher rates of corn, shellfish and fish allergies than white children, confirming that race and ethnicity play an important role in how people are affected by food allergy.

The findings come from the first study designed to assess and characterize the racial and ethnic difference in food allergies among children in the United States. The study was conducted by allergy and immunology experts at Rush University Medical Center, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center and Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago.

Results of the study were published in the Nov. 21 issue of the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology: In Practice.
