    Understanding retinal regeneration

    Following injury of the retinal pigmented epithelium (RPE), dedifferentiation and increased FGF2 expression initiate repair, but Del Rio-Tsonis and colleagues identify the importance of the transcription factor Lin28, which can direct the complete reprogramming of the RPE in this regeneration process in the chick eye.

  • Eye disorders in golden retrievers linked to novel mutation in TTC8

    The authors use whole genome scanning to identify an association between the gene TTC8 and inherited eye disorders in golden retrievers. A single mutation in TTC8 was found by DNA sequencing, and then confirmed by screening a larger number of dogs.

  • Genetics of eye disorders in the dog

    Cathryn Mellersh looks at the mutations that have been associated with inherited eye disorders in the dog. Similarities between eye structure and disease in humans and dogs point to an increased role for dogs in helping us to understand and treat eye disorders in both species.

  • Approaches to canine health surveillance

    Authors at the Royal Veterinary College and the University of Sydney review the history and development of health surveillance systems in canine medicine. These systems each have their own strengths and weaknesses when it comes to monitoring dog health.

    Gene expression in patient-derived xenografts

    Transcriptomic analysis shows for the first time that patient-derived xenografts in mice are more closely related to primary tumors than cell lines are for pancreatic tumors.

    Nuclear Receptor Signaling is now open for submissions

    BioMed Central is pleased to announce that Nuclear Receptor Signaling is now open for submissions. The journal has published reviews and commentaries with the Nuclear Receptor Signaling Atlas (NURSA) since 2004, but will now also consider primary research articles following its transfer.  The goal of NURSA is to accrue, develop, and communicate information that advances our understanding of the roles of nuclear receptors in human diseases and conditions in which they play an integral role. for further information please visit the journal.
