Human gut bacteria produce ΤΗ17-modulating bile acid metabolites

Bile acids are steroid-like natural products that are secreted into the gastrointestinal (GI) tract of vertebrate animals after eating — where they act as “detergents” that aid in digestion, as well as ligands for host receptors. In the gut, host-derived … Continue reading

Possible association between glyphosate exposure and autism spectrum disorder (ASD)

Human complex diseases represent a phenotype (trait) that reflects the combination of: [a] genetics (e.g., DNA sequence variants); [b] epigenetics (chromosomal changes other than DNA sequence alterations); [c] environmental factors (pesticides, chemical pollutants); [d] endogenous influences (diabetes, heart disease); and … Continue reading

Omicron variant largely avoids antibodies produced by present vaccines ??

The SARS-CoV-2 B.1.1.529 (omicron) variant contains 15 mutations in the receptor-binding domain (RBD). How Omicron evades RBD-targeted neutralizing antibodies — requires immediate investigation. Authors [see attached] used high-throughput yeast display screening to determine the profiles of RBD-escaping mutations for 247 … Continue reading
