Same-sex mating by fungi spawned infection outbreak, evidence suggests

...o C. gattii strains in Vancouver Island are either siblings or that one is the parent and the other the progeny. "Given that the minor outbreak form also exists in multiple locations in Australia, while the major outbreak form has only been found in the Pacific Northwest, we favor the hypothesis that the min...

Looking for the genes that affect a person's level of response to alcohol

...esearchers examined 238 18-to-29-year-old pairs of siblings (about 365 people) who had at least one alcohol-dependent parent. All of the pairs of siblings had had some experience with alcohol use themselves, but were not yet alcohol dependent. The goal w...

First wolverine radio-collared in Pacific Northwest

New genes implicated in rheumatoid arthritis

...ts strong genetic component, RA's occurrence among siblings seems to be random. In the quest to identify disease-specific gene expression profiles in patients with RA, researchers at the University of Michigan Medical Center turned to an ideal population: genetically identical, disease-discordant twins. T...

Down syndrome: It's not just the age factor

...wn Syndrome is also dependent on how many existing siblings the child has and how big the gap is between the child and his immediate preceding sibling. The research is published in Springer's journal Naturwissenschaften this week. Neuhäuser and Krackow reviewed and analysed data from 1953 and 1972 (before a...

Tiny clue reveals new path toward heart disease

...nt -- of a group of families in which at least two siblings had early onset coronary artery disease, looking for regions of "linkage" where DNA variations appeared to be inherited along with the disease. They found just such a region: a small section of the long arm of chromosome 3 where just a handful of gen...

Researchers discover genetic cause for word-finding disease

Twin studies reveal genetic components leading to cardiac and kidney disease

... difference in the frequency of traits between the siblings in each MZ and DZ twin pair establishes what is called the index of heritability. The human genome has three billion base pairs and about 30,000 genes. O’Connor and his research team have looked at about 900 of these 30,000 genes. "We’re jus...

The penalty of having a sister -- why sibling sex matters for male saiga antelopes

...pment in male twins, its existence is clear. "When siblings in a litter vary in sex, maternal investment should be sex-specific, meaning that the male foetus grows bigger than the female. However, it seems there are limitations in the ability of the mother to provision mixed twin litters in the womb," she sai...
