Abstract

Stressful life events influence the course of affective disorders, however, the mechanisms by which they bring about phenotypic change are not entirely known. We explored the role of DNA methylation in response to recent stressful life events in a cohort of bipolar patients from the lon...read more

Bipolar disorder is characterized by manic and/or depressive episodes and associated with uncommon shifts in mood, activity levels, and energy. Discover the latest research this illness here.

Schizophrenia And Bipolar Disorder: Genome Sequencing

Genome-wide and high-throughput DNA sequencing in Schizophrenia and Bipolar Disorder can be used to identify genes and pathways that contribute to disease risk. Here is the latest research.

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.

DNA Methylation (Keystone)

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.

CpG Sites

CpG sites are genomic loci where cytosine is followed by a guanine along its 5’ to 3’ direction. CpG sites are common in CpG islands and its methylation has been implicated in cancer, aging, and gene silencing. Here is the latest research.

Epigenetics & Psychiatry

Psychiatric disorders are known to be multifaceted in their pathophysiology. Because epigenetic changes can be sensitive to the environment, inherited, and reversible, the study of epigenetics in psychiatric disease is a logical way to understand the natural history of the disease as well as to develop therapeutics. Find the latest research on epigenetics and psychiatry here.
