A unique experiment explores the connection between the food we eat and our gut microbiota

Pre-leukemic stem cells (top) with both mutated and healthy copies of the RUNX1 gene already display some of the characteristics of acute myeloid leukemia (AML). When the non-mutated copy of the gene is inactivated, disruptions in the spindle-assembly-checkpoint phase of cell division trigger cell death

Weizmann Institute researchers discover that a “standoff” between a mutated gene and its normal counterpart keeps certain cancer cells alive...
