Intellectual disabilities caused by protein defect

Intellectual disabilities are often caused by a mutation that damages a gene, preventing the associated protein from functioning properly. However, a mutation can also change the function of a gene. As a result, the gene in question acts in a completely different way. Researchers discovered this mechanism in fifteen genes playing a role in the development of intellectual disabilities. Their research results show that these changes in function play a more prominent role than previously thought….

New genetic risk factor for developing autism spectrum disorder identified

A new systematic analysis has been applied to a cohort of 2,300 families who have a single child affected with autism. The study focused on identifying and characterizing low-lying genetic mutations that may have been missed in previous research, given these mutations are only present in a fraction of the bulk DNA of an individual….

Genes fueling neuroblastoma spread now identified

For the first time, researchers present data on how nervous system tumors, called neuroblastomas, spread. Their paper clarifies the relationship between two genes that fuel the aggressive spread of neuroblastomas….

Yawning: Why is it so contagious and why should it matter?

Feeling tired? Even if we aren’t tired, why do we yawn if someone else does? Experts have published research that suggests the human propensity for contagious yawning is triggered automatically by primitive reflexes in the primary motor cortex — an area of the brain responsible for motor function. Their study is another stage in their research into the underlying biology of neuropsychiatric disorders and their search for new methods of treatment….
