CRISPR-Cas systems in bacterial gene regulation and virulence
CRISPR-Cas systems are known to function in bacterial defense against foreign nucleic acids. We discovered a non-canonical and novel role in the regulation of gene expression via targeting of mRNA. Furthermore, repression of mRNA leads to evasion of host innate immune defenses (Toll-like Receptor 2 (TLR2) and inflammasome signaling), promoting bacterial virulence. As CRISPR-Cas systems are widely distributed among pathogens and commensals, they are likely to broadly play a role in the interaction of these bacteria with eukaryotic hosts.

Beginner paced yoga class with a focus on building strength, flexibility, stamina, and balance. Students will learn healthy and healing body alignment in and through yoga poses -- breaking poses down so that new or refreshing students can understand how classical yoga postures work and how to implement them in a home practice. Students learn breath awareness and the therapeutic benefits of synching movement with breath. Appropriate for individuals interested in a traditional yoga class, including first time students. Instructors are able to show modifications for each pose and for general health concerns. Take this if you have heart disease, pulmonary disease, chronic pain, arthritis, fibromyalgia, cancer, diabetes or a movement disorder.
