Neanderthals were upright individuals, skeleton proves

The popular image of a Neanderthal is that of a hunched ape-like creature with its knuckles scraping through the dirt. New research, however, reveals they stood more upright than modern humans. The first scientific comparison between current day homospaiens and neanderthals shows mankind’s ancient cousin had a straighter spine and stronger longs. Based on the most complete skeleton unearthed to date, it conjures a radically different image to the stooped and barrel chested character of myth. The...

[Perspective] One target for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis therapy?

Repeat expansion mutations cause a range of developmental, neurodegenerative, and neuromuscular disorders. The repeat sequences generally comprise a 3– to 6–base pair repeat unit that expands above a critical threshold, leading to disease. Expanded repeats cause disease via a range of mechanisms, including loss of function of the repeat-containing protein and production of toxic repeat RNAs and proteins, making the disorders difficult to treat. In 2011, a hexanucleotide repeat expansion in the C...
