Mitochondrial DNA is released by cigarette smoke

In a recent study, researchers have discovered that mitochondrial DNA is released extracellularly upon exposure to cigarette smoke and in […]

Can we be genetically predisposed to psychiatric disease and addiction?

A recent study, published in NeuroResource, has used single-nucleus transcriptome analysis to identify cell-type-specific molecular signatures in the brain that […]

Genomics week in brief: Week ending 25th September

We have got you covered for another week with our latest Genomics Week in Brief, jam-packed with some of the […]

Reversing diabetes with a selective microRNA inhibitor

Researchers have designed a structure-specific microRNA inhibitor that selectively represses a microRNA family member, which may in turn reverse the […]

Culturing ovarian follicles to foster in vitro gametogenesis

A recent study has demonstrated that the generation of functional ovarian follicle structures from mouse pluripotent stem cells in culture […]

A substantial genetic contributor to loss of Y chromosome and type 2 diabetes

Researchers have identified loss-of-function GIGYF1 variants that contribute more to the risk of loss of Y chromosome and type 2 […]

A novel pathway in the pathology of Rett syndrome

Researchers have revealed how dysregulation of the MECP2/miR-199a axis may contribute to the molecular pathology of Rett syndrome. Rett syndrome […]

Laminins could hold the key for novel anticancer strategies

A recent study has uncovered that a group of glycoproteins, called laminins, are essential for fighting and killing cancer cells, […]

Twin studies have disentangled the common genes in post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and migraine

A recent study of monozygotic twins revealed certain genes and pathways that overlap between post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and migraine, […]

ATP1A3: A gene found to be responsible for early brain malformations

Recently, researchers have explored the pathophysiology of ATP1A3, a gene that encodes for an ATPase pump sub-unit in the brain. […]
