Aging Genetics

This feed focuses on aging epidemiology and genetic, epigenetic, and proteomic aspects underlying aging, as well as aging- associated biomarkers. Here the latest research in this domain.

Angelman Syndrome

Angelman syndrome is a neurogenetic imprinting disorder caused by loss of the maternally inherited UBE3A gene and is characterized by generalized epilepsy, limited expressive speech, sleep dysfunction, and movement disorders. Here is the latest research.

Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome

Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome is an imprinting disorder characterized by overgrowth, congenital malformations and predisposition to tumors. Discover the latest research on Beckwith-Wiedemann Syndrome here.

Cancer Epigenetics

Epigenetic changes are present and dysregulated in many cancers, including DNA methylation, non-coding RNA segments and post-translational protein modifications. The epigenetic changes may or may not provide advantages for the cancer cells. Here is the latest research on cancer epigenetics.

Chromatin Regulation and Circadian Clocks

The circadian clock plays an important role in regulating transcriptional dynamics through changes in chromatin folding and remodelling. Discover the latest research on Chromatin Regulation and Circadian Clocks here.

Chromatin Remodeling

Chromatin remodeling is essential for regulation of gene expression, DNA replication, as well as DNA repair. Here is the latest research on chromatin remodeling complexes and mechanisms underlying chromatin remodeling.

Chromatin Remodelling

Chromatin remodeling is essential for regulation of gene expression, DNA replication, as well as DNA repair. Here is the latest research on chromatin remodeling complexes and mechanisms underlying chromatin remodeling.

DNA Methylation

DNA methylation is an epigenetic mechanism of gene regulation, and dysregulation of DNA methylation has been associated with tumorigenesis. Discover the latest research on DNA methylation here.

Epigenetic Changes in Pain

Targeted epigenetic interventions provide the tools to prevent nociceptive sensitization, mood-related symptoms, and other adaptations that occur in response to injury or inflammation, which will facilitate pain management and improve treatment efficacy in many chronic pain conditions. Here is the latest research on the epigenetics changes in pain.

Epigenetic Clocks

Aging is associated with reproducible changes in DNA methylation, and this epigenetic aging signature can be used to predict biological age. Find the latest research on epigenetic clocks here.
