Single cell sequencing of various tissues of mice harboring mutations in the chromosome segregation regulator BUB1B revealed that while tissues that primarily proliferate in the embryo i. This result indicates that aneuploid cells are selected against or perhaps even actively culled in the adult animal and can be explained by the population flush effect principle. This principle states that in rapidly expanding populations — as occurs during embryonic development — purifying selection is relaxed such that less fit individuals can survive and significantly contribute to the population.
During tissue regeneration in the adult purifying selection strength forces become relatively stronger, selecting against less fit aneuploid cells. Hematopoietic reconstitution experiments support the idea that aneuploid cells are selected against in adult tissues. Single cell sequencing of peripheral blood following reconstitution of a lethally irradiated recipient with BUB1B mutant hematopoietic stem cells shows that shortly after transplantation when stem cells and progenitor cells are rapidly expanding to repopulate the hematopoietic compartment of the recipients, aneuploidy levels are high Figure 5.
More recently we have obtained evidence that aneuploid cells are in fact actively culled. We observe that cells with highly aneuploid karyotypes senesce and are recognized by the innate immune system in vitro and in vivo.
We now want to understand how the innate immune system recognizes aneuploid cells and eliminates them. We are especially intrigued by the possibility that aneuploidy is one reason for immune recognition of cancer cells. Mitotic entry in the presence of DNA damage is a widespread property of aneuploidy in yeast. Mol Biol Cell.

Although Akhenaten's efforts have historically been viewed as a sincere effort at religious reform, he was most likely motivated by the great wealth of the Priests of Amun, who, at the time he ascended to the throne, held more land and greater wealth than the pharaoh. Huang, D. Aten was already associated with Amun and with Ra as the solar disc representative of the sun's divine power. The land of ancient Egypt was alive with the spirit of the gods Reviewed December 29, Amun, at this time, was associated with protecting the king but, largely, was simply a local fertility god paired with his consort Amaunet as part of the Ogdoad, eight gods who represented the primordial elements of creation. This attribute of invisibility led to a popular belief during the New Kingdom in the knowledge and impartiality of Amon, making him a god for those who felt oppressed.

Aneuploidy affects proliferation and spontaneous immortalization in mammalian cells. When chromosome segregation fails: consequences of aneuploidy on cellular and organismal physiology.
Cellular models to study aneuploidy: To study the effects of aneuploidy on cellular and organismal physiology we created two types of aneuploidy models — cells that harbor defined aneuploidies and cells in which the karyotype is continuously changing, a condition known as chromosome instability CIN. Defined aneuploidy models: For our work on aneuploidy in budding yeast we created 20 strains carrying one or two additional chromosomes that are maintained via selection.
CIN models: To examine the effects of chromosome instability on yeast and mammalian cell physiology we employ mutations or compounds that interfere with chromosome segregation and hence generate cell populations that harbor multiple random aneuploidies and continuous CIN.

Whether with the classical avant garde Kronos Quartet or D'n'B legends Noisia, or on his own in some invented form, Amon has established a reputation for musical ingenuity that is unconfined by genre.
