IN THE SPOTLIGHT
Memory CD8+ T cell, B cell responses, and SARS-CoV-2 protection after mRNA vaccination
Current SARS-CoV-2 vaccine recipients differ in infection history and the magnitude of their elicited antibody response.
A large human cohort distinguished by these parameters are queried for effector memory T cell subsets, memory B cells and ability to recognize epitopes from SARS-CoV-2 variants of concern.

FOXA1 regulates alternative splicing in prostate cancer

Lo studio ha identificato un nuovo ruolo per il noto oncogene del tumore alla prostata FOXA1, dimostrandone la funzione chiave nel controllo dello "splicing" alternativo, e quindi nell'influenzare la nascita di varianti geniche nel cancro. L'identificazione di tali varianti può aiutare a predire la prognosi della malattia e le varianti stesse possono rappresentare nuovi bersagli farmacologici per migliorare la sopravvivenza dei pazienti.
