Data collected by the UK biobank genetics, enhances our understanding of genes and how they affect health.
A new study shows that different populations may have different gene variants, determining their telomere length. Something that is crucial to health and longevity.
A new study showed that Cannabidiol, can increase the survival rate of pancreatic cancer patients, making it three times longer.
Monoamine oxidases, have been shown to play a role in oxidative stress in cells. Monoamine oxidases are enzymes used in mitochondrial membranes and exist as two different variants, MAO-A and MAO-B. Those enzymes have been shown to induce oxidative stress in similar ways, similar to those that result in cardiovascular pathophysiology.
Researchers find genes jumping from species to species throughout evolution. Those genes are called transposable elements and have the ability to replicate themselves and move to other locations within the genome or even other species apparently.
