  • Mechanism controlling multiple sclerosis risk identified

    While the DNA sequence remains the same throughout a person's life, the expression of the encoded genes may change with time and contribute to disease development in genetically predisposed individuals. Researchers at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden...

  • Research explains why many psychiatric drugs that work in the lab don’t work in people

    single-cell transcriptomes – a list of all the RNA sequences produced in the nucleus of one cell. This tells them what genes are being expressed to create specific proteins that in turn are used for the cell’s activity. This helps predict which cell...

  • How do ancient viruses cause MS and other neurological diseases?

    links neurological conditions and ancient viruses? Transposable elements, which scientists also call transposons or jumping genes, are stretches of DNA that harbor the ability to move around our genome. Scientists can trace back one type of transposon —...
