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...

...sured." 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...

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
