The creation and selection of mutations resistant to a gene drive over multiple generations in the malaria mosquito

Creation & selection of mutations resistant to a #GeneDrive over mult. generations in the malaria mosquito
http://journals.PLoS.org/plosgenetics/article?id=10.1371/journal.pgen.1007039 Indels created by #NHEJ-based repair of DS breaks give rise to resistance (probably resulting from mis-matches due to
micro-homologies near breakpts)

“In a response to STAT’s questions, Memorial Sloan Kettering said international journals are part of the literature it provides to Watson, including the Lancet, the European Journal of Cancer, Annals of Oncology, and the BMJ. “As we do in all areas of cancer research, we will continue to observe and study how Watson for Oncology impacts care internationally, follow the evidence, and work with IBM to optimize the system,” the hospital said.”

Cryo-EM Structures of the Magnesium Channel CorA Reveal Symmetry Break upon Gating – ScienceDirect

Friday, December 1st, 2017

QT:{{”
• Find 3.8 Å resolution cryo-EM structure of the ∼200 kDa magnesium channel CorA • Mg2+-free CorA exhibits dramatic loss of symmetry in the cytoplasmic domain …
• Inter-subunit Mg2+ is important for stabilizing the closed state of CorA “}}

#CryoEM Structures of the Mg++ Channel CorA Reveal Symmetry Break upon Gating https://www.ScienceDirect.com/science/article/pii/S0092867415017195 In closed conformation: 5 identical subunits arranged tightly around 5-fold axis & pore. In open: they lose bridging ions & open to differing degrees with helix-hinging motions.
