    Dogma challenged: the genetic determination of testis or ovary is conserved through evolution

    In animals, sexual reproduction is almost universal but the mechanisms that determine the choice between forming a testis or ovary are highly diverse. Researchers from the Institut Pasteur and the University of Minnesota have recently proven that the genetic determination of testis or ovary has been conserved through evolution, thanks to a study of the gene DMRT1.

    Premature aging: scientists identify and correct defects in diseased cells

    Scientists have succeeded in restoring normal activity in cells isolated from patients with the premature aging disease Cockayne syndrome. They have uncovered the role played in these cells by an enzyme, the HTRA3 protease. This enzyme is overexpressed in Cockayne syndrome patient cells, and leads to mitochondrial defects, which in turn play a crucial role in the appearance of symptoms leading to aging in affected children.

    Viagra to prevent transmission of the malaria parasite?

    By increasing the stiffness of erythrocytes infected by the causal agent of malaria, Viagra favors their elimination from the blood circulation and may therefore reduce transmission of the parasite from humans to mosquitoes. This astonishing discovery could lead to a treatment to reduce the spread of malaria within a population.

    From monkeys to humans: the importance of interspecies transmission in the emergence of retroviruses in Central Africa

    Most of the viral pathogenic agents that have emerged in humans in recent decades are of animal origin. Hence, researchers from the Institut Pasteur have recently proved, for the first time scientifically at the epidemiological level, that specific contact with a monkey is a risk factor for the transmission of a pathogenic retrovirus (STLV-1/HTLV-1) to humans
