Stanford researchers create a new technique for controlling protein production

Thanks to new RNA vaccines, we humans have been able to protect ourselves incredibly quickly from new viruses like SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. These vaccines insert a piece of ephemeral genetic material into the body’s cells, which then read its code and churn out a specific protein – in this case, telltale “spikes” …

Impact of Biochemical, Epigenetic, and Genetic Factors in RBC Health

Biree Andemariam, MD: That’s the perfect segue into a question I want to ask Matt. How does an increase in the levels of 2,3-DPG [diphosphoglycerate] impact red blood cell function? Matthew M. Heeney, MD: An increase in 2,3-DPG shifts the sigmoid-shaped oxygen dissociation curve to the right. That increases the p50 measure we use in …
