This result blew my mind a little bit. Horizontal gene transfer (HGT) is a phenomenon usually described in bacteria. One bacterium can trade genes with another directly. It is as if you were able to go over to someone with a different color of hair, shake her hand, get the gene for that color expression, and then start producing different colored hair. It is simply not something that we see in the animal kingdom... until now!

Researchers generated cancer cells with an impaired metabolism. In particular, the cells were deficit of the mitochondrial DNA required for their mitochondria to function. So what did those tumor cells do? They were able to transfer the mitochondrial DNA from non-cancer cells and restore their metabolic function. Cancer cells are highly adaptive and can manipulate their microenvironment in so many ways. In general, there is much we have to learn about cell physiology -- we really wouldn't expect to see HGT in the cells of a higher organism like this.

Figure 1. Tumor Cells without mtDNA Show Delayed Tumor Growth. (A) B16 and B16ρ0 cells (105) were injected s.c. into C57BL/6 or NOD/scid mice, and tumor growth was monitored. These cells and cell lines derived from s.c. tumors and lung metastases that grew from B16ρ0 cells were also injected ...

Colbert hat es wieder auf den Punkt gebracht
 
"There are certain favorites to be the next pope. According to the Irish gambling web site Paddy Power, the odds-on favorite is Cardinal Peter Turkson of Ghana, who is leading the pack at 3-1. That makes sense -- the church is in a mess right now and they always give the crappy cleanup job to the black guy." -- Stephen Colbert
