Alcohol's effects on gene expression in the central nervous system

...ehavioral responses to alcohol as well as possibly influencing drinking behavior. "Thus far, genes that appear to be responsive to alcohol include genes involved in the intracellular signaling process (which can alter how the neuron functions), neuropeptide signaling (which modulates nerve cell activity), and m...

Research Using Mouse Models Reveals A Novel Key Player In The Initiation Of Colon Cancer

...d a study that identifies another molecular player influencing the initiation of colon cancers. This study will be published in the February 1 issue of the journal Genes and Development. An animal model with an inactivating mutation within the mouse equivalent of the APC gene displays very similar pathology as...

Indeed the paper says that "in addition to influencing myogenesis directly, PAI-1 may modulate regeneration by regulating the inflammatory response (and) may also modulate muscle regeneration through the regulation of extracellular matrix turnover (or) by regulating the bioactivity of a variety of growth...

Single gene is genetic switch for fly sexual behavior

...mplex anatomical structures like eyes or limbs, by influencing sometimes hundreds of other genes, Dickson notes. "I don't see any good reason why innate behaviors, which are a consequence of how the nervous system is built, should be any different. Indeed, I think that is what our work shows," he says. In a se...

NCAR analysis shows widespread pollution from 2004 wildfires

Access to complete sequences across several MHC haplotypes that exhibit differences in disease susceptibility will help researchers to home in on specific variants (susceptibility al...

Ernst Mayr's theory illustrated in genetic epidemiology studies

...nes, the apparent importance of these two genes in influencing cholesterol levels can be totally reversed. Such alterations, Templeton said, are the fundamental basis of genetic revolution. A school of biologists who goes back to the English biologist R. A. Fisher believes that genes alone inherently are majo...

Engineered mouse mimics cognitive aspects of schizophrenia
