49ers visit Stockton in pursuit of crown

first_img“We want to get it done as soon as possible,” Aaron Nixon said, after scoring 27 points in only 28 minutes during Long Beach’s 102-77 nonconference victory over UC Davis on Saturday in the Walter Pyramid. “There is a lot riding (on the game). We’re playing on national TV, we want to wrap up the league and we want to take a (winning) streak into the (conference) tournament.” Long Beach was guaranteed no worse than a co-championship (with three games to play) when Cal Poly beat host Cal State Fullerton on Saturday, 90-80. The 49ers had little difficulty while beating the Tigers (92-64) when the teams met in Long Beach on Feb. 3. Long Beach coaches threw a bit of a surprise at UOP, pressing the Tigers full court and then falling into a 1-3-1 zone in half court (instead of their usual man-to-man). The move kept the Tigers from getting the ball inside to post players Anthony Brown (14.5 points per game) and Michael White (8.9 ppg) as frequently and in as good of position as coach Bob Thomason would have preferred. With a national television audience looking on (or whatever kind of viewing crowd ESPN2 can muster), the 49ers will take 19-7 overall and 9-2 conference records into the Spanos Center against a UOP team that is 11-15 and 5-6 after its 76-73 loss at Cal State Northridge on Saturday. If the 49ers win in Stockton for the first time in five years, they’ll return to Southern California on Tuesday morning with the BWC title all to themselves for the first time since 1996. LONG BEACH – The Long Beach State men’s basketball team got a helping hand from its Cal Poly counterpart Saturday in order to clinch a share of the Big West Conference regular-season championship. But it will be all on the 49ers tonight to win the thing outright when they visit Stockton for a 9 o’clock game with the University of Pacific Tigers. center_img And UOP’s perimeter players didn’t do much in the way of responding with jump shots while hitting just 7 of 23 shots behind the arc. Long Beach coach Larry Reynolds expects the Tigers to be much better prepared for that defensive approach this time around – assuming the 49ers employ it. “They’ve got a great coaching staff and I’m sure they’ll make adjustments,” he said of Thomason and his assistants. “So it will be up to us to make adjustments to their adjustments. “And I’m sure we’ll see a different UOP than the one we played here (in the Walter Pyramid).” The 49ers play their final home game on Thursday night against UC Irvine, then wrap up the regular season Saturday evening at UC Riverside. The Big West Tournament gets under way on March 7 in the Anaheim Convention Center. But the 49ers have clinched a bye until the March 9 semifinals. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

UK researcher details proposal for CRISPR editing of human embryos

first_imgThis past September, when Niakan applied to the United Kingdom’s Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) for a renewal of her license to conduct research on human embryos, she proposed to extend her work to include CRISPR editing. She hopes CRISPR will reduce the number of embryos required for her research, she said at the press conference; in several organisms, CRISPR has been shown to have higher efficiency compared with other approaches. Niakan believes her team would able to successfully edit up to eight out of 10 embryos using CRISPR. “If we start off with good quality zygotes, this is likely to work efficiently,” she said.As a pilot project, Niakan plans to knock out OCT4, a gene that is turned on in embryonic stem cells in both humans and mice. Researchers think that OCT4 is important for pluripotent cells, which can ultimately become any type of tissue. A way to test this idea is to knock out the gene when the embryo is 1 day old and still a single cell. The prediction, based on studies in mice, is that human embryos will continue to develop, but without pluripotent cells.Niakan will then look at less well-known genes that may be crucial for early development of human embryos. Unlike OCT4, these genes can only be studied in human embryos because they are not expressed the same way, or at all, in mouse embryos or immortalized lines of human stem cells, says her colleague Robin Lovell-Badge, also at the Crick Institute. The application contains a request to further study two or three such genes, Niakan said, depending on how many embryos will be available. The research would likely require 20 to 30 embryos per gene.Niakan did not express any opinions at the press conference about the merits or dangers of one day using CRISPR or other techniques for gene therapy of infertility. “At the moment it’s very important to continue the ethical discussions,” she said. But after several questions about potential outcomes of such early research, Niakan did “wildly speculate” that, if certain genes are found to be particularly important for development, one eventual approach might be to check during IVF whether eggs were making the proteins encoded by those genes, and if not, then add them to culture media. But the immediate goal of the research is far more basic: Understand what genes do in blastocysts.If HFEA approves the application, Niakan hopes to start research within months. The project would also need to be approved by the U.K. equivalent of an institutional review board.In a statement about the application, Hugh Whittall, director of the Nuffield Council on Bioethics here noted: “The changes to DNA made for the purposes of this research could not themselves be used as part of a treatment procedure. There are, however, possible future scenarios in which a modification made in a research context—for example to correct a disease-causing genetic mutation—could, if this were to become permissible, be used in a treatment that would result in the birth of a child. Such research, which could also be licensed under current legislation, would raise a number of significant questions that should be addressed before any such work is undertaken, including about whether, and under what circumstances, a move into treatment (which would require new legislation to be permissible in the U.K.) could be desirable.” Email Researchers have already identified several thousand genes that are active in the early embryo. To find out what these genes do, and which ones are master regulators of development, researchers have several approaches, including deactivating embryonic genes in mice. But only one group of researchers, in Guangzhou, China, has published a paper describing attempts to use this technique in human embryos.

Country LONDON—The hottest technique in gene editing, called CRISPR, could soon be used to study human embryos. On 14 January, a regulatory committee in the United Kingdom will evaluate a request to knock out development genes in day-old embryos. In a press conference today, Kathy Niakan, a researcher at the Francis Crick Institute here, discussed the rationale behind her proposed project and the hope that this line of inquiry might one day improve treatments for infertility.Niakan studies how the single cell of a fertilized egg turns into a blastocyst, the approximately 5-day-old structure that subsequently implants in the mother’s uterus. The blastocyst contains several types of cells. Those destined to become the fetus are called epiblast progenitor cells. They are surrounded by two other types of cells, which become the placenta and another structure, the yolk sac. Niakan’s research uses human embryos, created in fertility clinics, that are left over from in vitro fertilization (IVF) attempts and donated for research. After being studied, the embryos are destroyed when they are 7 days old.last_img read more
