Epigenetic Diagnostics: Locus-specific DNA Methylation Testing Poised for Clinical Impact
Precision medicine holds great potential to make a direct positive impact in the clinic. A growing number of diagnostic panels addressing a list of disease indications are now available for testing. Currently most tests are designed... [Read more on EpiBeat]
Epigenetic Dysregulation Within the Brainstem in Alzheimer’s Disease
The elusive nature of the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) impedes scientific breakthroughs in diagnostics or efficient therapeutics for this devastating disorder. To date, the long-prevailing theories of genetic contribution... [Read more on EpiBeat]
Asthma & Histone Acetylation: an important epigenetic mechanism in allergic diseases
Epigenetic regulation is thought to be one of the most important mechanisms contributing to the development and clinical course of chronic immunological diseases like allergies and asthma. DNA methylation has been extensively studied... [Read more on EpiBeat]
Non-coding RNA Expression is Synergistically modulated by Various Types of Epigenetic Modifications
It is well known that most of the mammalian genome is transcribed, producing large amounts of non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs). The two main types of ncRNA are micro RNAs (miRNAs) and long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs). MiRNAs are a recently discovered... [Read more on EpiBeat]
DNA Methylation in the Placenta: accelerated aging in pregnancy complications
The placenta is a unique organ as it is an extra-embryonic tissue primarily regulated by the fetal genome and shared between mother and fetus. However, it is a transient organ that is only needed throughout pregnancy and gestation... [Read more on EpiBeat]
