Left: normal nerve cells; right cells genetically engineered to neutralize MTCH2. Fluorescent proteins reveal the calcium uptake in the mitochondria of these cells. The genetically engineered cells reveal dramatically less calcium uptake – evidence of the crucial role this gene plays in mitochondria function

How does the body keep replenishing the supply of blood cells all our lives? Two pathways must work together

A three-dimensional reconstruction of the mitochondrial volume: The volume is larger (yellow and red) in blood-forming stem cells lacking MTCH2 (right), and relatively smaller (blue and green) in regular blood-forming stem cells

The wake-up call for blood stem cells comes with a jolt of energy  

We share many of our genes with sea urchins, but none of the sequences for long non-coding RNAs that regulate those genes

Non-coding DNA sequences on an evolutionary “fast track” may hold clues to human disease

Immortalized cells, left, pretreated with a drug that blocks the ERK signal, and right, without the pretreatment. Top cells are untreated, while the bottom ones are stimulated
