...day -- that chance mutations in a handful of genes leads to the unchecked cell growth typical of cancer. The effects of changing the normal number of chromosomes, which contain thousands of genes, are far more dramatic than mutation of a few genes, Duesberg says. In the past few decades, scientists have al...

Alcohol-dependence gene identified

Finding that GABA is involved in alcohol abuse and dependence supports a current theory that predisposition to alcoholism might be inherited as part of a general state of brain overactivation. People at risk ...

Atkinson, the professor who leads a major research program to genetically modify mosquitoes to combat mosquito-borne disease, was not surprised that there was a fitness cost associated with transgenesis, but was surprised with the magnitude of it. "Once we determine the genetic basis...

OHSU-led research examines role of copper, iron in diseases

...t-circuit of copper metabolism in human cells that leads to two deadly neurodegenerative disorders known as Wilson's disease and Menkes disease. Now, a research team led by scientists at Oregon Health & Science University is working full time at the molecular level of medicine to find out. These "metall...

In the case of BSE and vCJD, pathogenic prions introduced from contaminated food sources interact with normal prions in the body and transform them into the lethal agents that eventually create the "Swiss cheese-like" lesions in the brain...

Gene affecting bone mass, osteoporosis risk identified

...low bone mass, resulting in low bone strength that leads to fractures from relatively minor injuries. An estimated 10 million people suffered from osteoporosis in 2002, and about 80 percent of them are women. An enzyme activated by the gene could be targeted by drugs to prevent this bone-deteriorating diso...

Less is more: New technology captures gene-rich DNA segments

Obtaining genome sequence information frequently leads to breakthroughs in the study of a particular organism. Bringing agriculturally important plant species into the genomic age is therefore an important goal. However, because they are typically larger or much larger than the 3-billion letter human DNA...
