Preeclampsia hormone discovered
Bruno Reversade’s research team at the Institute of Medical Biology, A*STAR, have made an exciting new discovery on the importance of the ELABELA micropeptide in preventing preeclampsia. The study, published in the journal Science, shows that ELABELA protects against proteinuria and hypertension, two hallmarks of preeclampsia. Featured as a Perspective in Science, in The Scientist, MedicalXpress and PharmaAsia.
GASTRIC CANCER DRIVEN BY LGR5-EXPRESSING CHIEF CELLS
A breakthrough discovery by Nick Barker's group at Institute of Medical Biology, A*STAR found that LGR5-expressing chief cells are a major source of gastric cancer. A new population of Lgr5-labeled cells were identified in the corpus of the stomach and found to be recruited to function as stem cells during injury repair. However, with mutations these same cells can lead to gastric cancer.
