Cancer-Treating Drugs May Help Reduce Alcoholism-Related Anxiety

June 27, 2016 — Epigenetics is the study of changes in organisms caused by modifying gene expression – by alcohol, for example – rather than alteration of the genetic code itself. Recent evidence suggests that ... read more

Social Adversity Early in Life May Affect the Expression of Stress-Related Genes

June 3, 2016 — New research suggests that early severe social deprivation may impact DNA modifications that affect the expression of stress-related ... read more

Reader of Epigenetic Marks Could Be 'Game Changer' for Certain Cancers

Apr. 18, 2016 — A new article outlines the essential role of YEATS domain proteins in reading epigenetic marks that regulate gene expression, DNA damage response, and other vital DNA-dependent cellular ... read more

New Insights Into How the Brain Adapts to Stress

Apr. 12, 2016 — Genes in the brain that play a crucial role in behavioral adaptation to stressful challenges are controlled by epigenetic mechanisms. Adaptation to stress is known to require changes in the ... read more

Apr. 1, 2016 — Every cell in the body has two genomes, one from the mother and one from the father. Until now, researchers have lacked the tools to examine -- in a single cell -the exact readout from each genome to ... read more

Mar. 31, 2016 — A study of over 6,000 mothers and their newborn children -- one of the largest studies of its kind -- solidifies the evidence that smoking cigarettes while pregnant chemically modifies a fetus' ... read more

New Method Measures Risk of Type 2 Diabetes in Blood

Mar. 31, 2016 — A new type of biomarker has been found that can predict the risk of type 2 diabetes, by detecting epigenetic changes in specific genes through a simple blood test, report ... read more

Mar. 28, 2016 — According to epigenetics -- the study of inheritable changes in gene expression not directly coded in our DNA -- our life experiences may be passed on to our children and our children's ... read more

Sequence Features Accurately Predict Genome-Wide MeCP2 Binding in Vivo

Mar. 24, 2016 — Researchers are combining in vivo experimentation with computation for highly accurate prediction of the genome-wide binding pattern of a key protein involved in brain ... read more

Mar. 21, 2016 — The season a person is born in influences a wide range of things: from risk of allergic disease, to height and lifespan. Yet little is known about how a one-time exposure like the season of birth has ... read more

Mar. 14, 2016 — Scientists have shown that diet-induced obesity and diabetes can be epigenetically inherited by the offspring via both the oocytes and the ... read more

Feb. 29, 2016 — DNA is made from four nucleosides, each known by its own letter -- A, G, C, and T. However, since the structure of DNA was deciphered in 1953, scientists have discovered several other variants that ... read more

Unraveling the Gene-Environment Interaction

Feb. 17, 2016 — New research highlights new studies exploring how genes and the environment interact to shape how a child's behavior develops. The work provides evidence that methylation of specific genes is ... read more

New Predictor of Cancer

Feb. 17, 2016 — Epigenetic age is a new way to measure your biological age. When your biological (epigenetic) age is older than your chronological age, you are at increased risk for getting and dying of cancer, ... read more

Feb. 16, 2016 — A new study finds that RNA, considered the DNA template for protein translation, often appears with an extra letter -- and this letter is the regulatory key for control of gene expression. The ... read more

Feb. 9, 2016 — Ecological epigenetics has now been further advanced thanks, to the development of a new research technique. Epigenetic research has grown immensely as a field of research all across the world. In ... read more

Some Heart Drugs, Antibiotics Show Effective in Fighting Cancer

Feb. 9, 2016 — Drugs that showed promising perspectives in treating cancers have been identified by researchers, according to a recent study. These drugs are normally used to treat other diseases, such as heart ... read more

New Type 2 Diabetes Biomarker Identified

Feb. 8, 2016 — Type 2 diabetes accounts for around 90 percent of diabetes cases as well as being one of the major cardiovascular risk factors. Researchers have found an epigenetic mechanism implicated in the ... read more

Feb. 3, 2016 — For the first time, researchers have shown that an enzyme key to regulating gene expression -- and also an oncogene when mutated -- is critical for the expression of numerous inflammatory compounds ... read more

Feb. 1, 2016 — When the process of epigenetic reprogramming is defective in mouse development, the consequences in adulthood can include abnormal repetitive behaviors, scientists have ... read more
