Ovarian reserve tests fail to predict fertility, NIH-funded study suggests
Tests that estimate ovarian reserve, or the number of a woman's remaining eggs, before menopause, do not appear to predict short-term chances of conception, according to a National Institutes of Health-funded study of women with no history of infertility. The study appears in the Journal of the American Medical Association. (2017-10-10)

Research rethinks the evolutionary importance of variability in a population
It's been long thought that variability within a population is key to population's growth and survival but new research questions that assumption. Harvard researchers found that variability can actually lower population growth in single-cell organisms. This insight is important for characterizing the fitness of a population, which is useful, for instance, in understanding how bacteria respond to antibiotics. (2017-10-04)

Tubules to stop cell growth
TORC1 is an enzyme complex that controls the normal growth of our cells; but, when too active, it can promote diseases such as cancer. A study led by biologists from the University of Geneva (UNIGE), Switzerland describes how sugar regulates the activity of TORC1, through a surprising mechanism. In the absence of sugar, TORC1s assemble into a tubular structure, rendering them inactive and thus cell growth stops. (2017-10-04)

Modified peptides could boost plant growth and development
A new Australian study of peptide hormones critical for plant development could result in wide-ranging benefits for agriculture, tissue culture, and related industries, and even improve knowledge of peptides in humans.

Study published in Nature reveals molecular pathway of weight-controlling hormone
Scientists at NGM Bio have revealed deep insights into the role that a little-understood human hormone plays in regulating body weight. Named Growth and Differentiation Factor 15 (GDF15), this hormone is typically active only when the body experiences acute or prolonged stress, including following exposure to tissue-damaging toxins, such as chemotherapy, or during chronic disease, such as obesity or cancer. As a result, the GDF15 pathway holds promise for the development of potential therapeutics for diseases of both excess and insufficient body weight. (2017-10-02)
