Health News - Genetics

Timebomb in the testicles investigated by Oxford University researchers
Oxford scientists have for the first time been able to identify the origins of some severe disease-causing mutations within the testicles of healthy men. (Medical News Today)

Turning the volume of gene expression up and down
Gene expression can be turned on and off like a switch, or it can be finely adjusted, as with a volume control knob. Dr Garth Ilsley, research scientist in Prof. (Medical News Today)

Novel gene implicated in deafness
Researchers from King's College London and the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute have for the first time demonstrated a direct link between the Wbp2 gene and progressive hearing loss. (Medical News Today)

Single-lesion biopsy may be insufficient to choose therapy targeting resistance mutations
When metastatic tumors driven by drug-targetable genetic mutations become resistant to a targeted therapy drug, the usual practice is to biopsy a single metastatic lesion to test for new mutations... (Medical News Today)

Chromosomes reconfigure as cell division ends
Cellular senescence -- when a cell can no longer divide -- is a programmed stage in a cell's life cycle. (Medical News Today)

Gene family turns cancer cells into aggressive stem cells that keep growing
An examination of 130 gene expression studies in 10 solid cancers has found that when any of four related genes is overexpressed, patients have much worse outcomes, including reduced survival. (Medical News Today)

NIH researchers identify striking genomic signature shared by 5 types of cancer
National Institutes of Health researchers have identified a striking signature in tumor DNA that occurs in five different types of cancer. (Medical News Today)

Protein that switches cancers from inflammation to proliferation identified
Oxford University scientists researching PAD4, a protein that plays a role in the development of inflammatory diseases like arthritis and which is regularly found in cancers have uncovered the... (Medical News Today)

Mysterious allergy to vibrations: gene provides clue
People with vibratory urticaria now have an explanation for their condition, as scientists discover a gene that is specific to those affected. (Medical News Today)

The evolution of Dark-fly
On November 11, 1954, Syuiti Mori turned out the lights on a small group of fruit flies. More than sixty years later, the descendents of those flies have adapted to life without light. (Medical News Today)

Individuals' medical histories predicted by their noncoding genomes, Stanford study finds
Identifying mutations in the control switches of genes can be a surprisingly accurate way to predict a person's medical history, researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine have found. (Medical News Today)

Hair thinning by stem cell loss
Why people lose their locks in old age may be related to the aging of hair follicle stem cells, two new studies suggest. (Medical News Today)

From genes to latrines: Vikings and their worms provide clues to emphysema
In a paper published in Nature: Scientific Reports a group of researchers led by LSTM have found that the key to an inherited deficiency, predisposing people to emphysema and other lung conditions... (Medical News Today)

Schizophrenia breakthrough: scientists shed light on biological cause
A gene called C4 plays a key role in schizophrenia development, new research finds, representing the first ever study to shed light on the biological origins of the mental illness. (Medical News Today)

Clinical investigations of MRT are 'ethically permissible' if conditions met
Conducting clinical investigations of mitochondrial replacement techniques (MRT) in humans is ethically permissible as long as significant conditions and principles are met, says a new report from... (Medical News Today)

Model shows cancer's birth and spread from single cell
Using a model of melanoma plus a fluorescent tracer, scientists image live zebrafish over time to visualize the origin and spread of cancer from its birth as a single cell. (Medical News Today)

Lab in a suitcase for real-time Ebola surveillance
A genomic surveillance system that can be packed into a suitcase and transported to the field to provide on-site Ebola virus genome sequencing, generating results within 24 hours of collecting... (Medical News Today)

Structure of brain plaques in Huntington's disease described by Pitt team
Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine have shown that the core of the protein clumps found in the brains of people with Huntington's disease have a distinctive structure, a... (Medical News Today)

It's all about the timing: Fetal expression of core clock gene determines lifespan in mice
Abolishing the 24-hour clock by knocking out a key gene during development accelerates aging and shortens lifespan by two thirds in mice, but this effect is absent if the gene deletion is delayed... (Medical News Today)

Real time outbreak surveillance using genomics now possible in resource-limited conditions
New research published in Nature has shown how genome sequencing can be rapidly established to monitor outbreaks. (Medical News Today)

New stem cell model valuable tool for studying Andersen's syndrome
Successful reprogramming of muscle cells derived from biopsies of patients with Andersen's syndrome (AS) led to the formation of induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells that can serve as a valuable... (Medical News Today)

New syndrome which causes obesity and intellectual disability identified
Scientists at The University of Manchester have discovered a new genetic syndrome of obesity, over-eating, mental and behavioural problems in six families, from across the world. (Medical News Today)

UMN study identifies mechanism for drug target to help block HIV's ability to spread
Process in which HIV mutations speed up to a point that the HIV essentially wears itself out. (Medical News Today)

'Junk' DNA plays role in preventing breast cancer
Supposed "junk" DNA, found in between genes, plays a role in suppressing cancer, according to new research by Universities of Bath and Cambridge. (Medical News Today)

A 'gap in the armor' of DNA may allow enzyme to trigger cancer-causing mutations
Research at Indiana University has identified a genetic mechanism that is likely to drive mutations that can lead to cancer. (Medical News Today)
