- Call for Assistant News Editors
  Join our editorial team
  http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/04-2003/msg01.html

- Disentangling Fetal And Maternal Susceptibility For Pre-Eclampsia
  The Genetics of Pre-Eclampsia (GOPEC) collaboration aims to identify
  genetic factors in U.K. families affected by pre-eclampsia.
  http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/05-2005/msg32.html

- Allan-Herndon-Dudley Syndrome and the Monocarboxylate Transporter 8
  (MCT8) Gene
  Disturbances in blood levels of thyroid hormones suggest the
  possibility of systematic detection through screening of high-risk
  populations.
  http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/05-2005/msg31.html

- Mapping Of A Single Locus Capable Of Complementing The Defective
  Heterochromatin Phenotype Of RS Cells
  Complementation of this abnormal cytogenetic phenotype was used as a
  means to identify a specific region of the normal human genome capable
  of rendering phenotypic correction.
  http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/05-2005/msg30.html

- Brain Changes Over The Menstrual Cycle
  Report may provide a molecular basis for some of the hormonal
  fluctuations over the course of the menstrual (or estrus) cycle.
  http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/05-2005/msg29.html

- Race-Related Brain Activity
  Report shows that the brain area called the amygdale, that is involved
  in emotional processing, is activated in response to pictures of
  same-race faces.
  http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/05-2005/msg28.html

- Wiring The Brain For Depression
  Healthy carriers of a gene that increases the risk of depression have
  altered activity in brain circuits involved in emotion.
  http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/05-2005/msg27.html

- Human Trial Shows Potential And Limitations Of Anti-HIV Antibodies
  A clinical trial in a small group of HIV-1 infected patients has
  provided the first direct proof in humans that antibodies can control
  the virus -- but only for a very short time.
  http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/05-2005/msg26.html

- Stiff Handling Of Genes
  The efficacy of materials for carrying genes into cells may be
  determined more by their stiffness than by their chemical properties.
  http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/05-2005/msg25.html

- Bacterial Trojan Horses
  New work identifies an important molecule to target against Brucella
  infections in both humans and animals.
  http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/05-2005/msg24.html

- RNA Enzymes Use Acid
  Researchers show how a RNA molecule from the hepatitis delta virus
  (HDV) uses an acidic group to accelerate a chemical reaction central
  to its life cycle.
  http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/05-2005/msg23.html

- Fat: The Big Picture
  Research identifies the network of genes required for early steps in
  the development of brown fat cells.
  http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/05-2005/msg22.html

- Molecule That Induces Tumour Regression
  A promising approach to eliminate cancer cells is to trigger cell
  death (apoptosis) with inhibitors that bind to and block
  anti-apoptotic proteins that help keep cancer cells alive.
  http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/05-2005/msg21.html

- Interactions Between Separate Chromosomes Might Control Gene
  Expression
  Physical interaction between chromosomes might play an important role
  in coordinating gene expression in the nucleus of higher organisms.
  http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/05-2005/msg20.html

- Insulin Triggers Autoimmune Response In Diabetes
  Two groups of researchers provide convincing proof that insulin itself
  initiates the devastating autoimmune response associated with Type I
  Diabetes.
  http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/05-2005/msg19.html

- New Disease/Phenotype Technical Standards And Guidelines Now Available
  On-Line

- ACMG's Revised Guidelines For Cystic Fibrosis Population Carrier
  Testing
  Link to free copy of the guidelines is provided in this posted
  summary.

- International Team Determines Geographic Origin of Leprosy
  Leprosy likely originated in East Africa and spread to Asia and Europe
  before being imported into West Africa by explorers.
  http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/05-2005/msg16.html

- Mouse Gene Accounts For Blood Abnormalities and Parkinson's Symptoms
  Iron Regulatory Protein 2(IRP2) knockout mice which develop develop
  Parkinson's -like symptoms also develop anemia and signs of a rare
  skin condition.
  http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/05-2005/msg15.html

- MLC1 Gene may have a role in the aetiology of both
  schizophrenia and bipolar disorder
  Indian study finds associations with MLC1 polymorphisms and
  haplotypes
  http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/05-2005/msg14.html

- Depression Gene May Weaken Mood-Regulating Circuit
  A brain scan study suggests that a suspect gene may increase
  susceptibility to anxiety and depression by weakening a circuit for
  processing negative emotion.
  http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/05-2005/msg13.html

- Survival of Pathogenic Bacterium Inside Neutrophils
  A delay in apoptosis of human neutrophils allows bacteria enough time
