NASA Spaceline Current Awareness List #700 27 May 2016 (Space Life Science Research Results)

Status Report From: Spaceline
Posted: Friday, May 27, 2016

 

Editor's note: NASA's various life sciences programs have prepared the SPACELINE Current Awareness updates since 1999 covering all aspects of space life science, gravitational biology, space medicine, and human factors. NASA does not maintain a website - nor does it have an archive of this resource online. However, SpaceRef does have a complete archive of SPACELINE updates all the way back to 1999
that can be accessed here: http://www.spaceref.com/news/mission.html?mid=188&pag

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27192056

Note: ISS results. From the article: "There is an error in the fifth sentence of the last paragraph of the introduction. The correct sentence is: Recently, analysis of skin from space-flown mice showed that prolonged exposure to space conditions might induce skin atrophy and dysregulate the hair follicle cycle. There are errors in the last two sentences of the first paragraph of the discussion. The correct sentence is: Neutelings et al. investigated skin from space-flown mice and suggested that prolonged exposure to space environment might induce skin atrophy and deregulate hair follicle cycle, although they reported that the number of hair follicle in anagen increased in the space environment. Considering the FGF18 function on hair cycle, our results are not inconsistent with their findings."
