A study that tracked genetic mutations through the human equivalent of about 5,000 years has demonstrated for the first time that oxidative DNA damage is a primary cause of the process of mutation - the fuel for evolution but also a leading cause of aging, cancer and other diseases. The research, just published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, also indicated that natural selection is affecting the parts of the genome that don't contain genes "“ supposedly "junk" DNA...

A recent Swedish study may shed new light on the old adage, "You are what you eat." Researchers found that DNA isolated from the muscles of people with diabetes bears chemical marks not found in those who respond normally to rising blood sugar levels. The marks in question are found on a specific gene that controls the amount of fuel, in the form of glucose or lipids that cells burn. Those marks also show up in the skeletal muscle of people with prediabetes as well, suggesting that the DNA...

Discovery could lead to new therapies for progressive hearing loss A team led by scientists from The Scripps Research Institute has discovered a genetic cause of progressive hearing loss. The findings will help scientists better understand the nature of age-related decline in hearing and may lead to new therapies to prevent or treat the condition. The findings were published the September 3, 2009, in an advance, online issue of the American Journal of Human Genetics, a publication of Cell...

Johns Hopkins engineers have devised innovative computer software that can sift through hundreds of genetic mutations and highlight the DNA changes that are most likely to promote cancer. The goal is to provide critical help to researchers who are poring over numerous newly discovered gene mutations, many of which are harmless or have no connection to cancer. According to its inventors, the new software will enable these scientists to focus more of their attention on the mutations most likely...

One of nature's most gripping feats of survival is now better understood. For the first time, scientists from the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory observed the chemical changes in individual cells that enable them to survive conditions that should kill them. The team tracked the chemical changes in Desulfovibrio vulgaris, which is a single-cell bacterium that normally can only exist in an oxygen-free environment. They exposed the cells to the most...

Stem-cell research has led to what British scientists are calling a major breakthrough in the hunt for a cure for deafness, observers say. The studies at the University of Sheffield in England raise hopes for a cure after the cells vital for hearing were grown in a laboratory, the Times of London reported Thursday. Scientists hope that further work will lead to functional cells that could be implanted into the ears to treat total hearing loss. The investigative team has now started the next...

A U.S.-led team of medical researchers says cells isolated from the eye that many scientists believe are retinal stem cells are actually normal adult cells. The international study, led by Michael Dyer of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, suggests therapies to restore vision in people with retinal degeneration should emphasize the use of other types of stem cells. Stem cells are immature cells capable of producing large numbers of adult cells, such as retinal cells, the researchers said....
