- Sleep Provides A Window Into Memory
    Patterns of brain activity while awake can shape the formation of
    their neuron connections during sleep.
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/01-2008/000041.html

- A Stem Cell-Based Therapy To Treat Muscular Dystrophy
    A new way to manipulate embryonic stem cells (ESCs) in mice offers
    hope for an eventual cell-based therapy to treat muscular
    dystrophies, suggests a paper online.
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/01-2008/000040.html

- To Mend A Failing Heart
    A method to create an artificial heart using the remains of an actual
    full-sized adult heart that has been stripped of all its cells, but
    then replanted with neonatal heart cells, may hold promise for its
    eventual use in transplant surgery.
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/01-2008/000038.html

- Seeing How Viruses Encounter Immune Cells
    Study uncovers a surprising answer that may help to create effective
    anti-viral vaccines.
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/01-2008/000037.html

- Genetic Variants Associated With Susceptibility To Lupus
    Newly discovered genetic variants in at least six different regions
    of the genome are associated with increased risk of developing lupus.
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/01-2008/000036.html

- Genetics Of Height And Bone Disease
   Variants on a genetic locus related to osteoarthritis also affect the
   height of an individual, according to research.
   http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/01-2008/000035.html

- Seven Novel Loci For Plasma Lipid Levels
    Three new genome-wide association studies report seven novel genes or
    loci associated with lipid levels.
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/01-2008/000034.html

- Receptor Signalling In Pairs
    Scientists have discovered new information about the way that small
    molecules cause cell signalling.
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/01-2008/000033.html

- Transmitting HIV Through T Cell Nanotubes
    Membrane nanotubes formed by contact between immune T-cells
    significantly increase transmission efficiency of HIV between
    infected and uninfected cells.
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/01-2008/000032.html

- RNA And Tumour Suppression
    Researchers identify a candidate tumour suppressor gene for the
    deletions on chromosome 5q that are associated with certain
    blood-cell-production diseases.
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/01-2008/000031.html

- Identifying Skin Cancer Starter Cells
    Cells that initiate human skin cancer are identified.
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/01-2008/000028.html

- Tethering HIV
    An antiviral molecule called a 'tetherin' that acts to inhibit HIV-1
    particle release from cells is identified.
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/01-2008/000027.html

- Suppressing A Leukaemia Suppressor
    The expression of genes that help to limit the growth of normal cells
    can sometimes be turned down in cancer, causing cells to divide
    uncontrollably - hence their branding as 'tumour suppressor' genes.
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/01-2008/000026.html

- MicroRNAs That Reduce Metastasis
    Restoring the expression of certain microRNAs (miRNAs) that are lost
    as breast cancer starts to metastasize suppresses the spread of the
    cancer
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/01-2008/000025.html

- A triggering event is identified in the transformation of a
   precancerous cell to a cancer stem cell
    A study of monochorionic twins attributes the transformation of a
    preleukemic cell to a leukemic stem cell to the formation of a fusion
    gene, TEL-AML1.
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/01-2008/000024.html

- Identification of a Novel Neural Stem Cell Type
     Neural rosette cells have the potential to form all cell types found
    in the mammalian nervous system
    http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/01-2008/000023.html

- Molecular Evolution of Limb Length
    Changes in gene expression can create inter-species v
