  • Which variable has the greatest impact on gene expression? That was the challenge facing researchers at Warsaw Medical University, Poland, when they explored the attenuating effect of cyclosporin A (CsA) and allochimeric peptide on heart transplant rejection in rats at 1, 3 and 7 days post-treatment.

  • Which neurotransmitter is in control? Researchers at Columbia University are challenging the accepted model of appetite activation. Gene expression analysis suggests leptin—long thought to regulate food intake—may actually have less of a role than serotonin. Learn more.
  • How different signaling pathways can produce different effects. Serotonin can both promote and inhibit bone mass accrual. Faced with one neurotransmitter and two very different outcomes, researchers at Columbia University investigated the pathways that led to the contradictory effects. Learn more.
