A new study promises breakthroughs in all the diseases. (Alzheimer’s disease, Mental illness, multiple sclerosis, heart disease and more)

Data collected by the UK biobank genetics, enhances our understanding of genes and how they affect health.

Researchers find potential mechanisms behind diabetic cardiomyopathy.

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.

Biology

Evolution driven by cross species jumping genes.

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.
