Found: a genetic link to non-alcoholic steatohepatitis

10 December, 2021

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.

Gene editing used to create single-sex litters of mice

09 December, 2021

UK scientists have used gene editing technology to create female-only and male-only mice litters with 100% efficiency.

CRISPR gene editing can favour cells with cancer-linked mutations

22 November, 2021

The findings point to a need for caution in the use of CRISPR-based gene therapies.

Genetic risk factors identified for spine osteoarthritis

17 November, 2021

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.

So-called 'dust specks' are actually genome building blocks

09 November, 2021

Tiny 'microchromosomes' in birds and reptiles are linked to a spineless, fish-like ancestor that lived 684 million years ago.

Mapping the epigenetic signatures of pain

20 October, 2021

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.

A single gene helps regulate the sleep–wake cycle

12 October, 2021

Using the genetic model organism Drosophila melanogaster, researchers discovered that the Nf1 gene is essential for the regulation of the sleep–wake cycle.

Genetic trigger for type 1 diabetes may be in the lungs

17 September, 2021

New research supports a theory that respiratory viral infections can trigger the onset of type 1 diabetes.

New regulatory regions uncovered on the human genome

07 September, 2021

By analysing genomic data from more than 30,000 people, researchers revealed thousands of new regulatory regions that control disease-linked genes.

Identifying genetic causes of childhood epilepsy

02 September, 2021

Genetic testing is crucial in epilepsy patients in order for them to receive appropriate counselling and treatment.

Gene variant linked to autism spectrum disorder

09 August, 2021

Researchers have shown that a deficit in histone methylation could lead to the development of autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

LSBio cDNA clones and expression-ready ORF clones

03 August, 2021

LSBio offers a broad selection of over 13,000 cDNAs, each available in either a cloning vector or one of 14 different ready-to-use expression vectors.

Male hormones accelerate DNA ageing — in sheep, at least

30 July, 2021

The removal of male hormones in sheep delays ageing of DNA, and also drives feminine characteristics of DNA and the chemical tags it holds.
