One year of SARS-CoV-2 evolution
One year of SARS-CoV-2 evolution
A number of SARS-CoV-2 variants have emerged from immunocompromised hosts, research has identified. It is thought that variants of concern – including B.1.1.7, a variant first identified in Kent – were a result of long-term infection in people with a weakened immune system. Persistent infections in immunocompromised people could cause the virus to mutate more frequently because the person’s…

"But multicellular is more than just getting big. The big step to taking the volvocine algae from colony to multicellular life involves putting all those cells to work--specialized work. You can see the early days of specialization in the colonial algae through the development of organismal polarity, which is a fancy way of saying that we can define a front and back of the colony. The cells in front are generally large with big eyespots. And as you go to the back, the cells and eyespots get smaller. These differences create a gradient not just in characteristics, but in function. The larger eyespots in front mean those cells will be more sensitive to light, making them responsible for directing the colony."

Just a random, short thought for today’s post.
When microbes were discovered, they were first called “animalcules”.
For some daft reason I find that very cute. xP

Just a little fun fact, the ratio of bacteria in our body to human cells is 1:1 and approximately 0.2 kg in mass.

"In the Chlamydomonas algae, they separate completely through a process called cytokinesis, becoming their own individual self. But with the colonial algae and on up, that cytokinesis is incomplete, leaving the cells connected. Those connections are further supported by an extracellular matrix made up of glycoprotiens. And as the number of cells increased through evolution, so too did the volume of that matrix. At certain points in a Volvox's life cycle, that transparent scaffolding can make up 99% of its volume."

New research shows how immune response to TB differs in babies
New research shows how immune response to TB differs in babies
The immune response to tuberculosis (TB) differs in adults and newborn babies due to the way immune cells use energy to kick into gear in a bid to kill the bacteria. This fresh discovery – just published in leading journal, Frontiers in Immunology – offers hope for improving treatments for what remains a deadly disease. TB is still one of the biggest infectious killers in the world and babies are…

"For Chlamydomonas, you might get around 4-8 daughter cells. A gonium colony might have 8-16. And with Volvox, you can end up with thousands. And more than just the sheer increase in numbers is what the daughter cells do when they are newly made. "

Pain receptors linked to the generation of energy-burning brown fat cells
Pain receptors linked to the generation of energy-burning brown fat cells
BOSTON – (April 12, 2021) – A new source of energy expending brown fat cells has been uncovered by researchers at the Joslin Diabetes Center, which they say points towards potential new therapeutic options for obesity. According to the new report, published today by Nature Metabolism, the key lies in the expression of a receptor called Trpv1 (temperature-sensitive ion channel transient receptor…
