Cystic fibrosis is caused by mutations in the gene encoding the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) channel, which can result in chronic lung disease. The sequence of events leading to lung disease is not fully understood but recent data show that the critical pathogenic event is the loss of the ability to clear bacteria due to abnormal airway surface liquid secretion (ASL). However, whether the inhalation of bacteria triggers ASL secretion and whether this is abnormal…

Midday raspberry, blackberry, kale, and chard smoothie! The raspberries and blackberries contain anthocyanins which recognize and bind to a little sequence of DNA called an antioxidant response element and can activate genes with this particular tell-tale sequence of DNA including a  gene called NRF2. NRF2 is a master regulator of many genes involved in inflammation and genes with antioxidant activity. The berries also contain a type of fiber called pectin, which feeds beneficial gut…

The ability to fix atmospheric nitrogen plays an important role in the successful establishment of introduced plants. Questioning the widely held belief that generalism in mutualistic interactions between legumes and nitrogen-fixing bacteria (rhizobia) will benefit introduced plants Keet et al. compared community richness and structures of rhizobial mutualists associated with widespread and localised Acacia species (Fabaceae) in South Africa.  Investigating among the roots of Acacias. Next…
