TRF2-independent chromosome end protection during pluripotency.

Phil Ruis, David Van Ly, Valerie Borel, Georgia R Kafer, Afshan McCarthy, Steven Howell, Robert Blassberg, Ambrosius P Snijders, James Briscoe, Kathy K Niakan, Paulina Marzec, Anthony J Cesare, Simon J Boulton,

Mammalian telomeres protect chromosome ends from aberrant DNA repair1. TRF2, a component of the telomere-specific shelterin protein complex, facilitates end protection through sequestration of the terminal telomere repeat sequence within a lariat T-loop structure2,3. Deleting TRF2 (also known as TERF2) in somatic cells abolishes T-loop formation, which coincides with telomere ... Read more >>

Dietary protein considerations for muscle protein synthesis and muscle mass preservation in older adults.

Eunice T Olaniyan, Fiona O'Halloran, Aoife L McCarthy,

Amino acid bioavailability is critical for muscle protein synthesis (MPS) and preservation of skeletal muscle mass (SMM). Ageing is associated with reduced responsiveness of MPS to essential amino acids (EAA). Further, the older adult population experiences anabolic resistance, leading to increased frailty, functional decline and depleted muscle mass preservation, which ... Read more >>

Spontaneous single synapse activity predicts evoked neurotransmission by using overlapping machinery

Andreas Grasskamp, Meida Jusyte, Anthony McCarthy, Torsten W.B. Götz, Alexander Walter,

Abstract Synaptic transmission relies on presynaptic neurotransmitter (NT) release from synaptic vesicles (SVs), and on NT detection by postsynaptic receptors. Two principal modes exist: action-potential (AP) evoked and AP-independent “spontaneous” transmission. Though universal to all synapses and essential for neural development and function, regulation of spontaneous transmission remains enigmatic. Mechanisms ... Read more >>
