Gehirn/Körper-Inkongruenz bei Transgendern: Genvarianten liefern einige Erkenntnisse

07. Februar 2020 – Einige der ersten biologischen Beweise für die Inkongruenz von Transgender-Individuen, da ihr Gehirn denkt, dass sie ein bestimmtes Geschlecht jedoch einen anderen (entgegengesetzten) Körper haben, wurden möglicherweise in Östrogenrezeptor-Bahnen im Gehirn von 30 Transgender-Individuen gefunden.

Einer kürzlich in Science Reports veröffentlichten Studie zufolge wurden 21 Varianten in 19 Genen in Östrogensignalwegen des Gehirns gefunden,

Individuen dunkler Hautfarbe mit natürlichen blonden Haaren – In der Genetik ist alles möglich

8. August 2019 – Blondes Haar ist ein eher seltener menschlicher Phänotyp, der fast ausschließlich in Europa und Ozeanien vorkommt. Die menschliche Pigmentierung variiert innerhalb und zwischen den Populationen erheblich und hängt sowohl von der Exposition gegenüber ultravioletter Strahlung (UV) als auch von der Art und Menge des in Melanozyten und Keratinozyten produzierten Melanins ab.

Genetische Aspekte der Globesität: Glokalisiert oder nicht?

27. Juni 2019 – Die globale Adipositas-Epidemie ist so weitreichend, dass sie jetzt einen übergeordneten Namen hat: Globesität (der Begriff ist offensichtlich abgeleitet vom englischen Globesity (global obesity) und als solches im Duden wohl noch nicht aufgeführt). In diesem Zusammenhang stellen sich sehr interessante Fragen,

Personomik: Der fehlende Link zwischen Präzisionsmedizin und personalisierter Medizin

23. Oktober 2017 – In einer Publikation aus dem Journal of Personalized Medicine (J Pers Med 2017 Oct;7(4), PubMed Identifikation (PMID): 29035320 ) wird ein oft übersehener Aspekt der Medizin besprochen und ins Zentrum gestellt: Der Patient.

Der Author, R.C. Ziegelstein, hält fest,

  • The protein that stands between us and autoimmunity July 2, 2020
    The immune system is supposed to protect from external microbial invaders, but sometimes it turns its efforts inward, potentially resulting in autoimmune diseases. In a new study, researchers from Osaka University have discovered how reversible modifications to DNA by certain proteins protect from autoimmune diseases, and conversely, how the absence of these proteins paves the […]
  • Concern following gene therapy adverse events July 2, 2020
    The Editor-in-Chief of Human Gene Therapy, the first journal devoted to the field of gene therapy, and one of the world's leading experts on gene therapy have co-authored a new editorial, Moving Forward After Two Deaths in a Gene Therapy Trial of Myotubular Myopathy, in response to the news of two deaths in a now-halted […]
  • How a mutation on the novel coronavirus has come to dominate the globe July 2, 2020
    Flashback to mid-March: the novel coronavirus had reached San Diego, California. Few people could get tested, and even less was known about how the virus mutated as it spread from person to person.
  • High-definition likelihood inference of genetic correlations across human complex traits July 2, 2020
    Evaluating the genetic correlations across our phenotypes is of essential importance for understanding disease etiology and other potential causality. A new method—published in the journal Nature Genetics—vastly improves estimates of genetic correlations using established resources from genome-wide association studies.
  • Research team develops technology to improve effectiveness of stem cells in regenerative medicine July 2, 2020
    Stem cells have been holding great promise for regenerative medicine for years. In the last decade, several studies have shown that this type of cell, which in Spanish is called "mother cell" because of its ability to give rise to a variety of different cell types, can be applied in regenerative medicine for diseases such […]
  • Towards lasers powerful enough to investigate a new kind of physics July 3, 2020
    In a paper that made the cover of the journal Applied Physics Letters, an international team of researchers has demonstrated an innovative technique for increasing the intensity of lasers. This approach, based on the compression of light pulses, would make it possible to reach a threshold intensity for a new type of physics that has […]
  • Does DNA in the water tell us how many fish are there? July 3, 2020
    Researchers have developed a new non-invasive method to count individual fish by measuring the concentration of environmental DNA in the water, which could be applied for quantitative monitoring of aquatic ecosystems.
  • Fluorine enables separation-free 'chiral chromatographic analysis' July 2, 2020
    Researchers from the Shanghai Institute of Organic Chemistry of the Chinese Academy of Sciences recently developed a new platform for rapid chiral analysis, producing chromatogram-like output without the need for separation.
  • Hot flushes and night sweats linked to 70% increase in cardiovascular disease July 2, 2020
    New research from The University of Queensland has found that women who have hot flushes and night sweats after menopause are 70 per cent more likely to have heart attacks, angina and strokes.
  • The protein that stands between us and autoimmunity July 2, 2020
    Researchers from Osaka University identified the epigenetic proteins Tet2 and Tet3 as key regulators of B cell function. They showed that these proteins suppress B cell function and conversely, that Tet2/Tet3 knockout mice develop a mild form of systemic lupus erythematosus due to hyperactivation of T cells. These findings could help develop a novel treatment […]
