Xtalks presents a new and informative webinar that focuses on epigenetics research to understand DNA methylation changes that occur within lineage-specific and cancer-specific chromatin states. The live webinar takes place on Wednesday, February 26, 2014 at 2pm EST (7pm GMT). Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) February 07, 2014 Transcriptional regulation is accomplished by both focal cis-regulatory elements (promoters, enhancers, and insulators) and the higher order organization of chromosomes...

Environment, Lifestyle Factors Determines Changes In Pain Sensitivity
2014-02-05 09:12:41

Ranjini Raghunath for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online The way you react to pain keeps changing throughout your lifetime, influenced by lifestyle and environmental factors, a new study carried out by researchers at King’s College London suggests. The study identified genetic changes that determine how different people – even identical twins -- react to pain differently. The results from the study could help scientists understand how pain sensitivity differs in individuals, and...

DNA Methylation May Increase Cancer Risk As We Age
2014-02-04 05:01:25

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Age-related changes in a biochemical process known as DNA methylation could be responsible for the increased risk of cancer in older men and women, according to research appearing in the latest edition of the journal Carcinogenesis. While medical experts have long known that the aging process is a leading risk factor for the development of several different types of cancer, the exact reasons for that phenomenon have remained...

University of California - Riverside Findings by UC Riverside researchers could help build a new drug to kill the deadly parasite that is becoming resistant to existing drugs Say "malaria" and most people think "mosquito," but the buzzing, biting insect is merely the messenger, delivering the Plasmodium parasites that sickened more than 200 million people globally in 2010 and killed about 660,000. Worse, the parasite is showing resistance to artemisinin, the most effective drug for...

Researchers from the Bellvitge Biomedical Research Institute (IDIBELL) in Barcelona, Spain, have studied the role of a peculiar class of small non-coding RNAs that are mainly expressed in the human male germline. Whereas messenger RNAs transmit the genetic information required for protein synthesis, non-coding RNAs are functional molecules that are never translated into proteins and have important roles in diverse cellular processes. In human spermatozoa, these tiny RNAs are epigenetically...
