Emory Health Sciences DNA methylation critical in model of atherosclerosis Disturbed patterns of blood flow induce lasting epigenetic changes to genes in the cells that line blood vessels, and those changes contribute to atherosclerosis, researchers have found. The findings suggest why the protective effects of good blood flow patterns, which aerobic exercise promotes, can persist over time. An epigenetic change to DNA is a chemical modification that alters whether nearby genes are...

Inhibiting enzymes that cause changes in gene expression could decrease chemotherapy resistance in ovarian cancer patients, researchers at Georgia State University and the University of Georgia say. Dr. Susanna Greer, associate professor of biology, and research partners at the University of Georgia have identified two enzymes that suppress proteins that are important for regulating cell survival and chemoresistance in ovarian cancer. Their findings are published in the journal, PLOS ONE....

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...

Caltech-led team discovers enzyme responsible for neural crest cell development During the early developmental stages of vertebrates–animals that have a backbone and spinal column, including humans–cells undergo extensive rearrangements, and some cells migrate over large distances to populate particular areas and assume novel roles as differentiated cell types. Understanding how and when such cells switch their purpose in an embryo is an important and complex goal for...

UT MD Anderson researchers expose molecular connection between inflammation, methylation Chronic inflammation combines with DNA methylation, a process that shuts down cancer-fighting genes, to promote development of colorectal cancer, scientists at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center report today in the advance online publication of the journal Nature Medicine. The team's connection of these two separate influences eventually may lead to better combination therapies for...
