to certain ethnic groups and others are not. “This will help us in figuring out what exactly is going on in this illness,” he said. “It’s pretty exciting.” Early on in the rheumatoid arthritis research game, when HLA popped out as a major geneti...
'Lucky 13' as new gene discovery offers further hope for childhood blindness
...e" light. The finding, the thirteenth gene to be linked
to Leber’s congenital amaurosis (LCA), comes at a time of hope for the people born with the disorder. Scientists at Moorfields Eye Hospital, London, recently announced the start of clinical trials for a gene therapy involving injecting genes into the...
ASU research shows connection between testosterone, dietary antioxidants and bird coloration

to testosterone levels. Birds who were given additional testosterone depleted their carotenoid levels and became healthier, as if they were combating testosterone directly with antioxidants. “These findings show that there are nutrient specific me...
Genetic factors are linked to fever following smallpox vaccination
...hors analyzed 19 gene clusters (called haplotypes) linked
to the body’s response to viral infections. The new study identified a total of eight haplotypes in four different genes that were associated with altered susceptibility to fever after vaccination. It is the first study to show that fever after sm...

Bacteria ferry nanoparticles into cells for early diagnosis, treatment
...ached nanoparticles to the outside of bacteria and linked
DNA to the nanoparticles. Then the nanoparticle-laden bacteria transported the DNA to the nuclei of cells, causing the cells to produce a fluorescent protein that glowed green. The same method could be used to deliver drugs, genes or other cargo into...
Herpes virus hijacks DNA repair process
.... To ensure that enhanced viral replication wasn't linked
to orf36's interactions with other molecules, researchers turned to mice lacking the genes for ATM and H2AX, the damage response proteins activated by infection. When they infected cells from these mice with murine herpes virus, its ability to reprod...
Blood-brain barrier breached by new therapeutic strategy

early onset Parkinson disease to mutations in both copies of the PINK1 gene (one from each parent). They also have evidence that single-copy mutations in PINK1 are a significant risk factor for the development of later-onset Parkinson disease. "W...
Genome of Clostridium botulinum reveals the background to world's deadliest toxin
