A High-definition Map Of Liver Cells In Health And Disease

Researchers have created a high-resolution picture of the cells at work inside a key hub of metabolism — the liver — and shown how disease reprograms individual cell types. In every tissue throughout our bodies, various cell types communicate and coordinate their efforts to perform vital functions and maintain health. The new research not only […]

Genome-Wide Association Study Shows Metabolic Origins Of Anorexia

Anorexia nervosa is at least partly a metabolic disorder, and not purely psychiatric as previously thought, indicates a global study, led by researchers at King’s College London and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The large-scale genome-wide association study, undertaken by over 100 academics worldwide, identified eight genetic variants linked to anorexia nervosa. The […]

Psychiatric Disorders Correlation With Prenatal Gene Regulation Confirmed

Particular genetic variants in the human genome that are important for the development of the brain early in the life of the foetus are frequently found in psychiatric disorders, recent work from Denmark shows. Researchers studied a total of 8 million genetic variants and found that some of them occur particularly often in people who […]
