GlyT1 (light blue) is a protein that transports glycine across the cell membrane (grey). To do this, it opens to the outside and inside of the cell alternately. In contrast to other neurotransmitter transporters, it is bound by its inhibitor (orange) from the intracellular side, rather than the extracellular one. The sybody, a synthetic mini-antibody (dark blue), also inhibits GlyT1 by binding to a novel extracellular site. Credit: Azadeh Shahsavar/DANDRITE

Problems with cell’s skeleton and energy production: how a single gene defect can affect both neuronal development and immune system function

Researchers in Finland and Norway have discovered a gene defect that causes a novel inherited immune deficiency. The same gene, DIAPH1, has been previously shown to cause SCBMS syndrome, a rare genetic disease associated with severe brain development defects.

AI sup­por­ted diagnostics can fa­cil­it­ate screen­ing for cer­vical cancer in re­source-poor set­tings

A new study from FIMM group leader, Johan Lundin, at the University of Helsinki and Karolinska Institutet shows that artificial intelligence-supported digital microscopy at the point-of-care can be used to identify atypical Pap smears in a resource-limited setting.
