This press release is in support of a presentation by Dr. Daniel van den Hove on Sunday Oct. 6 at the 26th ECNP Congress in Barcelona, Spain Increasing evidence suggests that epigenetic regulation is associated with the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease (AD) and targeting it may one day lead to novel diagnostic and therapeutic strategies, research suggests. Scientists at The School for Mental Health and Neuroscience at Maastricht University, the Netherlands, have been performing...

The advent of next-generation sequencing in recent years has lead to a rapid, increased production of genetic and epigenetic data that can be used towards development of new diagnostics, treatments, and drugs. Epigentek, a leading company specializing in epigenetics, has developed a series of products specifically designed for optimal gathering of data in next-gen sequencing applications in a more convenient manner than currently used methods. Farmingdale, NY (PRWEB) October 01, 2013...

Understanding How Our Seasonal Clocks Work Using Siberian Hamsters
2013-09-24 08:10:52

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Humans, and many other animals, have internal clocks and calendars that help them regulate behavior, physiological functions and biological processes. Scientists have extensively studied the mechanisms that inform our daily functions, known as circadian rhythms. However, they know very little about the internal timekeeping mechanisms that inform seasonal functions. A new international study, led by the University of Chicago, reveals...

PTSD Treatment Hope From Memory Loss Gene
2013-09-19 04:11:00

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online The discovery of a gene partially responsible for the loss of old memories could benefit people suffering from posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) by making it easier to replace fear-inducing recollections with more positive associations, researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) claim in a new study. The gene, which is known as Tet1, appears to control a small group of genes that control the phenomenon...

Even before they are born, babies accumulate changes in their DNA through a process called DNA methylation that may interfere with gene expression, and in turn, their health as they grow up. But until now it's been unclear just how long these changes during the prenatal period persist. In a new study, researchers at the Columbia Center for Children's Environmental Health at the Mailman School of Public Health establish that signs of DNA methylation persist through early childhood, suggesting...

Brain Epigenome Changes Through Developmental Years
2013-07-05 14:26:38

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online While the entire genome has been sequenced and the codes of many genes have been identified, there are is a wide range of unknown mechanisms that interact with the code without changing "letters" of the DNA. These chemical changes to DNA are referred to as the epigenome, and a new study in the journal Science has revealed significant epigenomic activity during brain development. DNA includes four chemical bases: adenine (A), guanine...

Methylation refers to a chemical modification of DNA and this modification can occur in millions of positions in the DNA sequence. Until now, scientists believed that this epigenetic phenomenon actively reduced the expression of certain genes. Today, a team of researchers from the University of Geneva (UNIGE), Switzerland, led by Emmanouil Dermitzakis, Louis-Jeantet Professor at the Faculty of Medicine, reveals that this is not always the case and that DNA methylation may play both a passive...
