A new century of Alzheimer's disease research

...yloid-beta precursor protein, or APP) was found on chromosome 21. This made sense, because patients with Down syndrome, all of whom inherit an extra chromosome 21, typically develop early brain plaques and tangles. Then scientists linked mutations in two othe...

New Asthma Gene Identified

...'s risk for asthma. These markers are located on chromosome 17, and children with this marker had higher levels of a new gene called ORMDL3 in their blood, which occurs in higher amounts in children with asthma. The presence of the disease-associated version of ORMDL3 increases the risk of asthma by 60-70 per...

Genetic Marker That Increases Colon Cancer Risk Discovered

...ween genetic variation in a single region of human chromosome 8 and the risk of colorectal cancer. People who carry the specific genetic variation, the C allele of rs10505477, were found to be 23 percent more likely to have colon cancer than individuals without the marker. The genetic link between the mar...

Genetic Risk Factor for Prostate Cancer

...egion of the human genome devoid of known genes on chromosome 8. The studys complete findings will be published in the July 8 online edition of Nature Genetics. This is an important finding because, for the first time, a common genetic risk factor for multiple cancers has been identified, says lead author Chri...

Scientists Identify New Genetic Mutation Behind Common Dementia

...The researchers say that the mutation in a gene on chromosome 17 halves the production of progranulin, a protein growth factor that helps brain cells survive. For the study, the researchers conducted DNA tests on 70 family members, including 13 people with the disease. They found the new mutation in nine of t...
