To multicellularity likely rested on the co-optation of several transmembrane and secreted proteins to new functions in intercellular signaling and adhesion,’they wrote in Science. Are choanoflagellates really a unique window back in time to the origin of animals and people They are our best way of triangulating on that last unicellular ancestor of animals , because there are fossils not there, ‘said Dan Rokhsar, UC Berkeley professor of molecular and Cell Biology and program Director for Computational Genomics at the JGI King and Rokhsar also members of the UC Berkeley Center for Integrative Genomics.. Perhaps, they argue, the last unicellular ancestor of all animals employed these ancient cadherin bacteria to bind proteins and to eat, while more complex metazoans has these proteins for gluing cells into a larger, multi-cellular organisms.

‘In animals, some of these proteins, called cadherins, developed for linking cells together, they are the glue that prevents clumps of cells from falling apart,’King said. ‘Choanoflagellates show no trace of multicellularity, but they have 23 genes for cadherin proteins, about the same as the fruit fly or the mouse. ‘.. A result is confirmed by sequencing that choanoflagellates many genes in animals, produce proteins essential for cell-to – cell signaling, and in determining which cells adhere to each other. And recorded.onosiga of colonies do not have as some other choanoflagellates, these proteins are the roles are a mystery, King said.A study in the journal Clinical Cancer Research is published in a journal of which American Association for Cancer Research, confirmed a non-invasive screening method with future potential proof human papillomavirus – a positive head and neck cancers.

The results showed identification on high risk HPV infections in patients with HPV16 – positive HNSCC of for up to five years after treatment, what and to the high rate of persistent infection and affirming the conjunction between high-risk HPV HPV-positive head of and neck cancer. There is no doubt of causes, said degree co-author Maura Gillison Associate professor of oncology. This was the first study were able were able to track the disease and related oral infection for a longer period. .
