they also had other quirks such as increased production of the pigment melanin a known virulence factor Two-thirds of these unconventional cells contained an extra chromosome Cells carrying an additional copy of either chromosome 9 or 10 became drug resistant living longer than their parents when treated with the antifungal drug fluconazole Offspring with extra copies of chromosome 9 or 13 proved as virulent as their parents when injected into mice Overall duplications of chromosomes led to changes that were detrimental under some conditions (the presence of a drug) or neutral under others (higher or lower temperatures) Although the study doesn’t point to immediate treatment possibilities Heitman says that many researchers are studying the mechanisms that allow cells to tolerate the many extra proteins produced by the additional genes which might reveal a weakness to target The fact that genetic diversity produced from scratch through unusual types of sexual reproduction can lead to antifungal drug resistance suggests that this process may occur in other fungal infections Heitman believes The mechanism may also underlie infections caused by some parasites including Giardia which causes intestinal illness and Leishmania which causes skin sores organ damage and anemia he says Berman agrees that the possibility that aneuploidy can confer benefits “isn’t what the textbooks say is supposed to happen If it’s a mechanism of drug resistance we need to take that into account” For example Berman says future treatments might combine antifungal drugs with compounds still to be developed that can hinder the formation of aneuploid cellsWritten by ANI | London | Published: April 10 2009 5:09 pm Related News A new healing drug can reduce scarring after surgery or injurysay UK researchers At the site of the wound before and after an incisionthe druga synthetic cell- signalling agentis injected under the skin To reach the conclusionresearchers conducted three trials of the treatment on groups of volunteers who willingly suffered centimetre-wide puncture wounds in their arms The incisions were deep enough to penetrate through the skin to underlying musclereports The Scotsman.
