|twist gene in fruit flies
Nov 12, 2003
Have you heard of the "twist" gene in fruit flies that when found to be lacked in mice, causes severe cachexia?
This gene is thought now to be a clue into better treatments for muscle wasting in Cancer, HIV/AIDS, and chronic wasting patients.
I figured you might have the latest on these developments.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
