Prions, prionoids and protein misfolding disorders    pp405 - 418
Claudia Scheckel & Adriano Aguzzi

Parallels are increasingly being drawn between prion diseases and other aggregate-mediated neurodegenerative disorders. While prion diseases are a distinct subclass of protein misfolding disorders (PMDs), a better understanding of shared mechanisms is likely to benefit treatment of all PMDs.


The transition to modernity and chronic disease: mismatch and natural selection    pp419 - 430
Stephen Corbett, Alexandre Courtiol, Virpi Lummaa, Jacob Moorad & Stephen Stearns

The authors review the changes in life history traits brought forth by the Industrial Revolution and the evidence for antagonistic pleiotropic effects, whereby genetic variants associated with higher fitness in the past now predispose to diseases such as cancer and coronary artery disease.


Heterogeneity and specialized functions of translation machinery: from genes to organisms    pp431 - 452
Naomi R. Genuth & Maria Barna

Variation in the composition of translation complexes may serve as a means to regulate gene expression. How translation of select transcripts is achieved by specialized components and the role of this form of dynamic control of gene expression in disease are reviewed.


Structural variation in the 3D genome    pp453 - 467
Malte Spielmann, Darío G. Lupiáñez & Stefan Mundlos

Recent studies show that structural variation can alter the genome architecture, leading to changes in the regulation of gene expression that cause disease. The authors review the role of genetic structural variation in disease and the pathogenic potential of changes to the 3D genome.
