- Household Allergens Make Skin Vulnerable To Eczema
    Dust mite and cockroach allergens aggravate the symptoms of eczema
    and similar diseases by disrupting skin barrier function.
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/03-2008/000014.html

- Autoimmunity Affected By More Than A Defective Immune System
    Research suggests that autoimmunity is linked to defective
    developmental biology as well as a defective immune system.
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/03-2008/000013.html

- Chemical Treatment Of Neurons Makes Them Light Sensitive
    A chemical treatment that makes neurons light responsive is
    described.
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/03-2008/000012.html

- Bone Marrow Nurturers
    Researchers have identified a new cell residing in bone marrow that
    provides an essential survival factor for antibody-producing B cells.
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/03-2008/000011.html

- Multi-Tasking Sensor Of Immune 'Danger'
    Data explaining how a single sensor of 'danger' manages to activate
    two distinct host immune defense signaling pathways is presented.
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/03-2008/000010.html

- Mitochondrial DNA Deletions Affect Lifespan
    Large DNA deletions in mitochondria are associated with premature
    ageing in mice
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/03-2008/000009.html

- Genetic Variants Predisposing To Coeliac Disease
    Scientists have identified variants in seven genomic regions that
    predispose to coeliac disease.

- Pathway Influences Human Hair Growth And Texture
    Researchers have identified the genetic basis of two related but
    clinically distinct forms of inherited hair loss.
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/03-2008/000007.html

- Altered Stem Cells Accelerate Ageing
    Study provides a mechanism by which the mutant protein Progerin
    contributes to the premature ageing disease Hutchinson-Gilford
    Progeria Syndrome (HGPS), and implications for our understanding of
    normal ageing.
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/03-2008/000006.html

- Twist Mediates Hypoxia-Driven Tumour Metastasis
    Study identifies a pathway that could be active in several types of
    cancer, and the importance of using certain protein inhibitors for
    tumour treatment.
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/03-2008/000005.html

- Drug Detective Kit For The Cell's Powerhouse
    A large-scale analysis of the effects of almost 2,500 drugs and
    natural products on mitochondria promises to become invaluable to
    scientists seeking new ways to tackle diabetes, neurodegeneration and
    even ageing.
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/03-2008/000004.html

- Building A Picture Of Sight
    A device that can 'read' the brain and produce a picture of a

    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/03-2008/000003.html

- Turning Off 'Stemness' In Skin Cells
    Researchers have discovered the switch mechanism responsible for
    imposing the molecular boundary between the proliferating basal cells
    and terminally differentiating outer skin cells.
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/03-2008/000002.html

- Targeting Psychosis
    A pair of receptors in the brain that react to hallucinogenic drugs
    are identified as a potential target for the treatment of psychosis.
