New research has found unique DNA markings on certain genes may 'predict' the risk of developing head and neck cancer Unique DNA markings on certain genes may "predict" the risk of developing head and neck cancer, according to new research led by Queen Mary University of London. The findings, published today in the journal Cancer, raise the potential for the development of non-invasive tests which could pick up these tell-tale signs of early cancer initiation. Head and neck cancers...

Understanding How Our Seasonal Clocks Work Using Siberian Hamsters

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...

Genes related to self-control could be 'disabled' by the prenatal environment Chronic aggressive behavior exhibited by some boys from disadvantaged families may be due to epigenetic changes during pregnancy and early childhood. This is highlighted by two studies conducted by a team led by Richard E. Tremblay, professor emeritus at the University of Montreal and Moshe Szyf, professor at McGill University, published in the journal PLOS ONE. The first author of the two papers, Nadine...

Microbes that live in rice paddies, northern peat bogs and other previously unexpected environments are among the bacteria that can generate highly toxic methylmercury, researchers at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center have learned. This finding, published in Environmental Science and Technology, explains why deadly methylated mercury is produced in areas where the neurotoxin’s presence has puzzled researchers for decades. Methylmercury —...
