In PNAS this week: ties between epigenetic changes and metabolic memory, dromedary domestication patterns, and more.

Initially studying pancreatic tissue, the team also linked their findings to methylation patterns in blood, suggesting the possibility of developing a non-invasive test.

The team said their approach may have several applications, including evaluation of cellular response to therapies, and early diagnosis of diseases like cancer.

Using mass spec analysis of pancreatic β cell extracts, they identified peptides that appeared responsible for T cell responses involved in the disease.
