AbbVie’s cancer drug Venclexta blocks diabetes in mice by targeting beta cell ‘senescence’ 

AbbVie’s cancer drug Venclexta blocks diabetes in mice by targeting beta cell ‘senescence’ 
A UCSF team found that beta cells experience “secretory senescence,” a process whereby DNA damage causes them to stop working properly. That touches off the immune attack on beta cells that’s characteristic of Type 1 diabetes. In mice, a drug that eradicates senescent cells—AbbVie’s leukemia treatment Venclexta—prevented the onset of the disease.

Revealing the role of the mysterious small proteins

Revealing the role of the mysterious small proteins
Investigators develop a technique to identify and classify proteins with less than 100 amino acids. These types of proteins account for only 16 percent of a bacterial genome’s coding capacity. This technique may be applied to guide the search for new proteins with different functions, such as antimicrobials.
