K. Markey, J. Mill, R. Nemade, F.S. Zollmann
http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen

- Twin Studies Point to Genetic Variability Among Different Populations
    Twin studies from eight populations show that genetic mechanisms for
    height, weight and BMI are more variable than researchers previously
    suspected.
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/09-2008/000019.html

- The Tuberculosis Bacterium's Stealthy Ways
    Mycobacterium tuberculosis -- the bacterium that causes most cases of
    tuberculosis -- spreads infection by blocking a naturally triggered
    immune response that would cause the infected cells to die.
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/09-2008/000018.html

- Coping with Immune Cell Death
    Researchers have discovered a 'sensor' molecule that alerts the
    immune system to the presence of necrotic cells.
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/09-2008/000017.html

- Risk Factor for Common Kidney Disease
    Scientists have identified the first common genetic variants that
    increase risk of end-stage kidney disease (ESKD).
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/09-2008/000016.html

- Susceptibility to Bladder Cancer
    Researchers have found a genetic variant associated with increased
    risk of urinary bladder cancer.
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/09-2008/000015.html

- Enzyme Associated with Vitamin B12 Levels
    Scientists have identified the first genetic variants that contribute
    to variation in levels of vitamin B12.
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/09-2008/000014.html

- New Approach for Leukaemia Treatment?
    Drugs that block the action of an enzyme called glycogen synthase
    kinase (GSK3) may prove useful in treating a particular type of poor
    prognosis leukaemia.
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/09-2008/000013.html

- Invasion Proteins Target Placenta
    Researchers may have figured out how a disease-causing bacteria
    crosses the placenta from mother to baby.
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/09-2008/000012.html

- New Colon Tumour Gene Gives Fresh Therapeutic Lead
    Cancer researchers have identified a gene that promotes the growth of
    colon cancers, potentially creating a new avenue for treating many
    cases of the disease.
