Scientists detect probable genetic cause of some Parkinson's disease cases

...Parkinson'sdisease. It was isolated on a region of chromosome 12 called PARK8 byinvestigators who studied five families with a history of Parkinson'sdisease who lived in the Basque region of Spain and in England.In these new studies, the researchers sought to determine theprevalence of the genetic mutation in o...

Breakthrough Microarray-based Technology for the Study of Cancer

Protein Packages Found To Activate Genes; May Be What Regulates Development And Disease

...ological breakthrough Bernstein has been studying chromosome wrappings for five years as a postdoctoral researcher in the lab of Stuart Schreiber. Together they worked out techniques to examine the way genes are packaged in yeast. To go from yeast to humans required a technological breakthrough, however. "Mos...

Mouse gene shows new mechanism behind cardiac infarction in man

...panese research group, have scrutinised an area on chromosome 1 that is of demonstrable importance to the development of arteriosclerosis. The TNFSF4 gene was identified as the one responsible, as mice with mutations in this gene displayed a lower degree of atherosclerosis, while mice with more active variants ...

Chromosome Deletion Predicts Aggressive Neuroblastoma

When genes are deleted on a particular section of chromosome 11, the result is an aggressive form of the childh...plified MYCN. "The deletion of genetic material on chromosome 11 may account for a significant percentage of these high-risk neuroblastomas," said Dr. Attiyeh. I...

Tendency to hair loss inherited from the mother

...lies on the x chromosome. Men always inherit the x chromosome from their mother. In many cases men therefore take after their grandfather on their mother's side rather than their father. However, this defect is not simply caused by one gene: "We have indications that other genes are involved which are independe...

Mother birds increase progesterone to hatch females

...fspring. In birds, however, it is the female's sex chromosome that determines offspring sex. Now, Cornell University researchers think they understand the mechanism that several bird species use to bias the sex ratios of their offspring toward female. By experimenting with domestic chickens, they have determin...

Located on chromosome 18 and called PH domain Leucine-rich repeat Protein Phosphatase (PHLPP, pronounced "flip"), the tumor suppressor is described in the April 1, 2005 issue of the journal Molecular Cell. The scientists demonstrated that PHLPP deletes a phosphate molecul...
