The seven participants tested so far breathe for ten minutes into a commercially available handheld device, which cools the air, ...

Scientists Map Key Landmarks in Human Genome

... regulates target genes, and specifically where in promoter regions of those genes does MITF bind," Fisher said. "In the process of this work, we asked whether MITF is binding between nucleosomes or on top of nucleosomes, and that led us to devise a method to ask where the nucleosomes are located." The rese...

Probing the Effect of Endurance Exercise on Athletes' Hearts

... for our findings is that exercise also acted as a promoter of the RV changes, maybe in synergy with other environmental or genetic factors, and hence led to arrhythmias. Our study does not provide definitive proof for either of these explanations, but our data contribute to the accumulating, indirect evidenc...

Scientists Identify Gene That May Indicate Predisposition To Schizophrenia

...etween schizophrenia and genetic variations in the promoter region of the chitinase 3-like 1 (CHI3L1) gene, an association that was significant in both population-based and family-based investigations. The CHI3L1 gene acts as a survival factor in response to adverse environments, countering various types o...

Hostile Behavior in Women may Be Gene Based
