Members of the British military who witnessed nuclear test programs in the 1950s and 60s are no more likely to pass on genetic alterations to their offspring and future generations than other members of the military, a new study reports.
Common epigenetic markers associated with food addiction have been identified.
In mice, the failed epigenetic suppression of Xist leads to fetal developmental abnormalities and miscarriage. Knocking out the Xist gene greatly reduced prenatal death. The findings have implications for understanding infertility and developing new treatments to prevent miscarriage.
Your epigenetic "age" can predict your risk of developing cognitive impairments and dementia later in life, a new study reports. Epigenetic age takes into account specific personal epigenetic changes that occur in relation to your biological age.
H3 acetylation of basal neural precursor cells may have been an important factor in the evolution of the human neocortex.
Combining two natural products that modulate the epigenome, researchers believe they have identified a feasible approach to reversing symptoms of PTSD in animal models that could be effective in humans.
Stressed male mice can pass down their behaviors to their offspring via alterations in their sperm's DNA, a new study reports.
