US researchers have found that exercise may quite literally be helping us to stay young — on an epigenetic level, that is.
Researchers found that a particular form of E. coli had a previously unnoticed gene that made it highly resistant to commonly prescribed antibiotics.
Until now, it was believed that the Adelaide Imipenemase (AIM-1) gene was only found in the South Australian capital city.
The findings could make it easier to screen for the disease, which is caused by thousands of genes that interact with other risk factors like smoking.
CAR T cells are most often manufactured using viruses, but new research is exploring the benefits of using alternative gene editing systems for this purpose.
Researchers found that albino mice with a point mutation in the tyrosinase gene are more susceptible to NASH than mice carrying the non-mutated gene.
UK scientists have used gene editing technology to create female-only and male-only mice litters with 100% efficiency.
The findings point to a need for caution in the use of CRISPR-based gene therapies.
HKU researchers helped identify that the SOX5 gene, which is known to be essential for the development of the intervertebral discs, is implicated in spine OA.
Tiny 'microchromosomes' in birds and reptiles are linked to a spineless, fish-like ancestor that lived 684 million years ago.
Scientists carried out a complete epigenomic study to define specific biomarkers for each type of pain, in order to be able to categorise the various types of pain quickly.
Using the genetic model organism Drosophila melanogaster, researchers discovered that the Nf1 gene is essential for the regulation of the sleep–wake cycle.
New research supports a theory that respiratory viral infections can trigger the onset of type 1 diabetes.
By analysing genomic data from more than 30,000 people, researchers revealed thousands of new regulatory regions that control disease-linked genes.
Genetic testing is crucial in epilepsy patients in order for them to receive appropriate counselling and treatment.
