Estrogen receptor is linked to long-range changes in higher-order chromatin organisation and epigenetic dysregulation in breast cancer
Expression of a phosphorylated STAT3 (pSTAT3)-associated gene signature is linked to trastuzumab resistance in HER2-positive breast cancer, suggesting that agents targeting the STAT3 pathway could help overcome resistance in the clinical setting.
English Cocker spaniels in Denmark risk inheriting distichiasis, an uncomfortable additional row of cilia on the eyelid margin. Could selective breeding benefit the breed?
