Score that combines genetic and epigenetic changes might help guide acute myeloid leukemia therapy
Scritto da Genetics News From Medical News Today   
BiochimicaCurrently, doctors use chromosome markers and gene mutations to determine the best treatment for a patient with acute myeloid leukemia (AML). But a new study suggests that a score based on seven mutated genes and the epigenetic changes that the resea ... ...
 
New method established for studying RNA's regulatory 'footprint'
Scritto da Genetics News From Medical News Today   
BiochimicaIncreasingly, biologists have come to realize that RNA is not merely a transitional state between DNA and proteins but plays a major role in determining whether and how genes are turned into a protein product. Gaining a deeper understanding of RNA re ... ...
 
Cholera's early evolution and identification of strain responsible for early pandemics
Scritto da Genetics News From Medical News Today   
BiochimicaWorking with a nearly 200-year-old sample of preserved intestine, researchers at McMaster University and the University of Sydney have traced the bacterium behind a global cholera pandemic that killed millions - a version of the same bug that continu ... ...
 
Express yourself: UCLA researchers develop novel approach to study how genetic differences affect gene expression
Scritto da Genetics News From Medical News Today   
BiochimicaIndividuals differ from each other genetically, each carrying a unique version of the human genome. Some of the genetic differences influence traits such as height, weight or vulnerability to certain diseases. But precisely what these genetic variant ... ...
 
Inherited gene copies 'randomly activated,' study suggests
Scritto da Genetics News From Medical News Today   
BiochimicaIt is common knowledge that with many illnesses, such as cancer, risk of development is partly determined by family history of the disease. But new research suggests that "random chance" decides if a certain gene copy that is inherited from our mot ... ...
 
Improved understanding of fat control and the body clock
Scritto da Genetics News From Medical News Today   
BiochimicaAustralian researchers have shed more light on an underexplored aspect of the important brain-signaling system that controls appetite, body composition and energy use. Their findings suggest that a specific gene regulating our body clock may play a c ... ...
 
Tracking genomic divergence in humans, chimpanzees and their lice
Scritto da Genetics News From Medical News Today   
BiochimicaA new study compares the relative rate of molecular evolution between humans and chimps with that of their lice. The researchers wanted to know whether evolution marches on at a steady pace in all creatures or if subtle changes in genes - substitutio ... ...
