Twin study finds type 2 diabetes clues in epigenetic changes

Added: 30.11.2021 0:17 | 16 views | 0 comments

Identical twins share the same DNA, but one twin can suffer from type 2 diabetes while the other twin does not develop the disease. Researchers have now discovered that there are differences in gene activity in twins where only one sibling had developed the disease. The discovery could contribute to the development of new treatment methods.

Source of DNA mutations in melanoma

Added: 27.11.2021 17:57 | 9 views | 0 comments

The mutations that give rise to melanoma result from a chemical conversion in DNA fueled by sunlight -- not just a DNA copying error as previously believed, reports a new study. The findings upend long-held beliefs about the mechanisms underlying the disease, reinforce the importance of prevention efforts and offer a path forward for investigating the origins of other cancer types.

The chillest ape: How humans evolved a super-high cooling capacity

Added: 27.11.2021 17:57 | 9 views | 0 comments

Researchers have discovered how a uniquely high density of sweat glands evolved in the human genome. Researchers showed that the higher density of sweat glands in humans is due mostly to accumulated changes in a regulatory region of DNA -- called an enhancer region -- that drives the expression of a sweat gland-building gene, explaining why humans are the sweatiest of the Great Apes.
