redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Rare copy number variations (CNVs) are more common in families that are affected by autism, suggesting that this type of genetic testing could prove to be an important tool in the individualized diagnosis and treatment of the condition, researchers from the Autism Genome Project claim in a new study. In a report published in the April 24 edition of the American Journal of Human Genetics, the authors discuss the CNV testing of...

New study finds substantial proportion of risk for developing autism spectrum disorders resides in genes that are part of specific, interconnected biological pathways New York, NY (PRWEB) April 24, 2014 A substantial proportion of risk for developing autism spectrum disorders (ASD), resides in genes that are part of specific, interconnected biological pathways, according to researchers from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, who conducted a broad study of almost 2,500 families...

Researchers at King's College London and Imperial College London have discovered that people with fewer copies of a gene coding for a carb-digesting enzyme may be at higher risk of obesity. The findings, published in Nature Genetics, suggest that dietary advice may need to be more tailored to an individual's digestive system, based on whether they have the genetic predisposition and necessary enzymes to digest different foods. Salivary amylase plays a significant role in breaking down...

Genetic Variations Found In The Brain

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online While it was once believed that every cell in a person’s body contains the same DNA code, new research, led by experts at the Salk Institute, has found an unexpected level of variation among the genomes of different neurons originating from the same person’s brain. Previously, it was assumed that the way in which a genome is read imparts cell function and ultimately defines the individual, but the authors of the new study...

Sometimes, when the DNA in a cell is copied during cell division, there is a mistake. A large portion of the genetic material could be duplicated or deleted. In each instance, there is often a greatly enhanced potential for serious genetic disease. Such changes are known as copy number variation (CNV) referring to the numbers of copies of a gene. Instead of ‘letters of the DNA alphabet’ being changed or missing, whole sentences, entire paragraphs or even pages/volumes of the encyclopedia...
