    cause for reflection even revelation as in a poem or painting The Selection Committee for the 1994 Lewis Thomas Prize believes that François Jacob embodies this synthesis of talents in a distinctive and highly original manner A scientist at the famed Pasteur Institute in Paris and professor of the College de France Dr Jacob s research has revolutionized modern genetics Studying some of the world s simplest organisms the phage viruses that invade bacteria Dr Jacob s research has helped lay the foundations of our modern understanding of the logic and machinery by which DNA directs a cell s functions In 1965 he received the Nobel Prize in Medicine Jacob has also gained world renown as an author of three distinguished books The Logic of Life hailed by the philosopher and historian Michel Foucault as the most remarkable history of biology that has ever been written The Possible and the Actual regarded by many as the most acute account yet written on the evolution of biological form and The Statue Within an autobiographical memoir described by The New York Review of Books as comparable in its evocative power to Boris Pasternak s Doctor Zhivago François Jacob was born in 1920 in Nancy France In 1940 his medical studies at the Faculty of Paris were interrupted when the Germans invaded France Jacob escaped joined the Free French forces in London and served during World War II as a medical officer in North Africa and in Normandy Fighting with the allies he was severely wounded and thus forced to abandon his studies as a surgeon He eventually turned to research in bacterial genetics joining Andre Lwoff s famed group at the Pasteur Institute in 1950 With Jacques Monod Jacob showed how the genetic information contained in DNA can be switched on and

  • Research explains how cellular guardians of the gut develop | Newswire
    of the Laboratory of Mucosal Immunology The discovery of this pathway makes it possible to explore exactly how the IELs protect the gut which no one has so far been able to address in a conclusive way IELs police the single cell layer of intestinal epithelium a fine boundary that spans as much as 400 square meters and allows nutrients in and wastes out Nearly all IELs belong to a group of lymphocytes themselves a type of white blood cell known as T cells produced by the thymus an organ below the breastbone IELs are made one of two ways Natural IELs require no additional activation after they are produced by the thymus Induced IELs meanwhile are produced when two types of mature T cells CD4 and CD8 cells acquire new traits and move into the gut epithelium becoming IELs During an immune response CD4 cells send out signals to other immune cells earning them the name helper T cells In research published last year Mucida and his colleagues uncovered how CD4 cells lose much of their helper function and take on characteristics more commonly associated with CD8 cells and IELs which are less likely to promote inflammation The new research took a closer look at this pathway which the team had since determined leads to all IELs natural and induced They focused on two proteins T bet and Runx3 transcription factors that regulate the expression of genes Both T bet and Runx3 occur in high levels in IELs and were already known to play a role in the development and function of T cells Using genetically modified mice along with other techniques we determined the hierarchy between these two transcription factors T bet induces the expression of Runx3 says Bernardo Reis a postdoc and first author of the study
