Mothers Ensure Their Offspring's Success Through Epigenetics

Parents pass genes along to their offspring which equip them for their future life. In recent years, research has shown that the reality is much more complex and that parents endow much more than ...

Mothers' Behavior Influences Bonding Hormone Oxytocin in Babies

A new epigenetic study now suggests that mothers' behavior can also have a substantial impact on their children's developing oxytocin ...

A Treasure Map to Understanding the Epigenetic Causes of Disease

Researchers have identified special regions of the genome where a blood sample can be used to infer epigenetic regulation throughout the body, allowing scientists to test for epigenetic causes of ...

It May Be Possible to Restore Memory Function in Alzheimer's, Preclinical Study Finds

New research reveals a new approach to Alzheimer's disease (AD) that may eventually make it possible to reverse memory loss, a hallmark of the ...

Leukemia Breakthrough: CircASXL1-1 Regulates BAP1 Deubiquitinase Activity in Leukemia

Researchers have identified covalently closed circular RNAs (circRNAs) from key genes involved in leukemia development and provided greater understanding of their roles in haematological ...

Epstein-Barr Virus Rewires Host Epigenomes to Drive Stomach Cancer

Researchers have discovered a molecular mechanism that explains how Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection alters a host's epigenome to promote tumorigenesis (the transformation of normal cells into ...

Epigenetics: What the Embryo Can Teach Us About Cell Reprogramming

Cell reprogramming provides an outstanding opportunity for the artificial generation of stem cells for regenerative medicine approaches in the clinic. As current cell reprogramming methods are low in ...

Parental Diet Affects Sperm and Health of Future Offspring

When parents eat low-protein or high-fat diets it can lead to metabolic disorders in their adult offspring. Now, an international team has identified a key player and the molecular events underlying ...

Length of Pregnancy Alters the Child's DNA

Researchers have mapped the relationship between length of pregnancy and chemical DNA changes in more than 6,000 newborn babies. For each week's longer pregnancy, DNA methylation changes in ...

Could New Discovery Play a Role in Diagnosing Alzheimer's Earlier?

Scientists have detected that a previously overlooked gene behavior could potentially lead to a new way to diagnose Alzheimer's ...

Epigenetics: Inheritance of Epigenetic Marks

A study undertaken by a molecular biologist sheds new light on the mechanisms that control the establishment of epigenetic modifications on newly synthesized histones following cell ...

Hormone Resistance in Breast Cancer Linked to DNA 'Rewiring'

Researchers have revealed changes to the 3D arrangement of DNA linked to treatment resistance in ER+ breast ...

A New Breakthrough in Developing Effective Antimalarial Drugs

Parasites in the genus Plasmodium, which cause malaria, are transmitted to humans through bites from infected mosquitoes. The parasites manage to acclimatize to these two completely different hosts ...

Combining Neurologic and Blood Pressure Drugs Reduces Breast Tumor Development in Mice

Adding a medication used to treat epilepsy, bipolar disorder and migraines to a blood pressure medicine reversed some aspects of breast cancer in the offspring of mice at high risk of the disease ...

Researchers Uncover Defective Sperm Epigenome That Leads to Male Infertility

One out of eight couples has trouble conceiving, with a quarter of those cases caused by unexplained male infertility. Research has linked that to defective sperm that fail to 'evict' ...

Scientists Create 'Epigenetic Couch Potato' Mouse

A study in mice shows for the first time that epigenetics -- the molecular mechanisms that determine which genes are turned on or off -- plays a key role in determining an individual's innate ...

Highly Sensitive Epigenomic Technology Combats Disease

Much remains unknown about diseases and the way our bodies respond to them, in part because the human genome is the complete DNA assembly that makes each person unique. Researchers have created new ...

Silencing Retroviruses to Awaken Cell Potential

Silencing of retroviruses in the human genome is a crucial step in the production of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) from somatic cells. Researchers led by a team from the University of ...

Swiss Army Knife for Genome Research

Multifunctional tool CRUP makes enhancer prediction quick and ...

DNA Repeats -- The Genome's Dark Matter

First direct analysis of pathogenic sequence repeats in the human ...

Mechanism Connects Early Binge Drinking to Adult Behaviors

Intermittent exposure to high levels of alcohol in adolescent animals leads to increased levels of microRNA-137 in the brains of adults. Blocking microRNA-137 helps to reverse or the lasting effects ...

Leukaemia Cells Can Transform Into Non-Cancerous Cells Through Epigenetic Changes

Researchers have discovered that a leukemic cell is capable of transforming into a non-cancerous cell through epigenetic ...

Machine Learning's Next Frontier: Epigenetic Drug Discovery

Scientists have developed a machine-learning algorithm that gleans information from microscope images -- allowing for high-throughput epigenetic drug screens that could unlock new treatments for ...

Changes Associated With Alzheimer's Disease Detectable in Blood Samples

Researchers have discovered new changes in blood samples associated with Alzheimer's disease. A new international study was conducted on disease-discordant Finnish twin pairs: one sibling ...
