Single genetic defect links many risk factors for heart disease and stroke

...sions that defining the mechanisms underlying such linkages will be easy. "We have identified this defect and linked it with these traits, but there remains a complex black box in between," he said. "We don't know the mechanism that links the two." A better understanding of this mechanism could yield new tre...

Needling chromosomes yields insights into cell division

...xperiments also revealed that it is the erosion of linkages between the chromatids, and not any tension exerted by the spindle, that causes the chromatids to separate. Also intriguing, found the researchers, was that the chromatids mysteriously remained stuck to one another at a time when biochemical analysis...

Changes to embryos can elicit change in adult fish

In a study illustrating the apparent linkages between the evolutionary development and embryonic development of species, researchers have uncovered the genetic elements that determine the structure and function of a simple biomechanical system, the lower jaw of the cichlid fish. In addition, the...

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