    Abstract : Epigenetics has evolved into a key research focus in the field of psychiatry. DNA methylation is the most researched epigenetic mechanism. In paper I-III, 130 and 93 adolescents were randomly recruited at two separate intervals. READ MORE

  2. 2. Networks in epigenetics

    Author : Kuljeet Sandhu; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Networks are ubiquitous. It is only recently, we started exploring what purpose they serve in real world. Biological research supposedly has, and will be, benefited most from the network science because of inherent complexity embedded in its multilayered organization. READ MORE

  3. 3. Genetics, epigenetics and functional mechanisms in inherited corneal and retinal dystrophies

    Author : Ida Maria Westin; Irina Golovleva; Berit Byström; Marie Burstedt; Ola Sandgren; Sudha Iyengar; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetics; Epigenetics; Splicing; Methylation; Ophtalmology; FECD; Stargardt; Retinitis pigmentosa; ABCA4; EYS; TCF4; F5; THBD; Coagulation factor V; Thrombomodulin; medicinsk genetik; Medical Genetics;

    Abstract : Inherited eye disorders (IED) are groups of genetically and clinically heterogenous conditions affecting different tissues in the eye. IED are most often progressive with reduced vision or legal blindness as outcome. READ MORE

  4. 4. On the role of genetic variation and epigenetics in hemostatic gene regulation

    Author : Martina Olsson Lindvall; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Hemostasis; Tissue-type plasminogen activator; Genetics; Epigenetics; DNA methylation;

    Abstract : Many genetic variants have been identified to associate with circulating levels of hemostatic proteins and with thrombotic or hemorrhagic disorders. However, the underlying molecular mechanisms remain largely unknown. READ MORE

  5. 5. Epigenetics of paediatric glioma stem cells; focusing on exosomes, miRNAs and DNA methylation

    Author : Ágota Tüzesi; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Epigenetics; microRNA; DNA methylation; exosomes; glioblastoma; paediatric; glioma stem cells; neural stem cells; TMZ response;

    Abstract : Tumours in the central nervous system are accountable for the majority of cancer-related deaths in children. Glioblastoma multiforme, one of the deadliest of the central nervous system tumours, is partly driven by glioma stem cells. The generation and maintenance of these cells is orchestrated by complex genetic and epigenetic mechanisms. READ MORE
