Researchers have revealed the mechanism of the drug valemetostat shown to be effective in treating certain types of cancer by targeting a protein modification (histone methylation) silencing the expression of tumor suppressor genes and restoring ...
While exposure to a single substance like DDT has been shown to create inherited disease susceptibility, a recent study in animals found exposure to multiple different toxicants across generations ...
Do epigenetic changes cause type 2 diabetes, or do the changes occur only after a person has become ill? A new study provides increased support for the idea that epigenetic changes can cause type 2 ...
Researchers have uncovered a mechanism that safeguards the biallelic expression of haploinsufficient genes, shedding light on the importance of having two copies of each chromosome. A study identified the epigenetic regulator MSL2 an ...
