Childhood Abuse Increases the Risk of Alcoholism
... M.D., a visiting fellow in NIAAAs Laboratory of Neurogenetics in Bethesda, Maryland. DNA variations occur within a regulatory area the MAOA-linked polymorphic
region (MAOA-LPR) -- of the MAOA gene.
Two such MAOA-LPR variants occur most frequently and result in high or low MAOA enzyme activity. In a ...
Young People Who Died Suddenly, Inexplicably Had Genetic Heart Defects
... spelling errors in the genetic code. The defects produced one of two abnormal heart rhythm conditions: Long QT syndrome (LQTS) and catecholaminergic polymorphic
ventricular tachycardia (CPVT). Both syndromes can declare their presence silently and catastrophically with a sudden death episode as the first ...
Alcohol Dehydrogenase Gene may Protect from Developing Alcoholism
... Alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH) is one of the major enzymes involved in alcohol metabolism. The genes for ADH are polymorphic
at two loci, ADH1B and ADH1C.//
The three alleles at the ADH1B locus have previously been linked with protection from alcohol dependence, a new ...
Does Aspirin Crystallize?
... one polymorph or the other.
Aspirin is the first case in which two different “polymorphic” structures exist in one single crystal. So is aspirin polymorphic
or not? Should the definition of polymorphism be updated? Such questions are not just philosophical in nature, but could have tangible implications ...
Allergies can prevent brain cancer
... multiforme (GBM) might be prevented by the same genetic factors that cause allergies.
Researchers had found that the different kinds of polymorphic
forms of two genes are responsible for people being susceptible to allergic conditions and having a minor risk of GBM.
The current study ...
Risk for Diabetes type II may be in the genes
