  • behavior
  • One hundred and seven DNA regions showed different tags between the foragers and the reverted nurses, suggesting that the epigenetic marks were not permanent but reversible and connected to the bees' behavior and the facts of life in the hive. (phys.org)
  • congenital
  • This model is compatible with the most recent genetic analyses and underscores the importance of growth during the time-dependent patterning phase, providing a new mechanistic framework for understanding congenital limb defects. (biologists.org)
  • diseases
  • We are actively collaborating with the Stitzel, Palucka and Banchereau labs at The Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine to uncover epigenetic remodeling associated with human diseases including type 2 diabetes (T2D), auto-immune diseases and cancer. (jax.org)
  • code
  • Despite numerous computational approaches have been developed to decipher the combinatorial epigenetic patterns or -epigenetic code-, none of them has explicitly addressed the relationship between a specific transcription factor TF and the patterns. (duhnnae.com)
  • The epigenetic code gives the genome a level of flexibility that extends beyond the relatively fixed DNA code. (utah.edu)
  • At the same time, the epigenetic code is sensitive to changing environmental conditions such as availability of food or threat from predators. (utah.edu)
  • different
  • This enables identical DNA to behave in different ways because it is wrapped around histones with different chemical (epigenetic) tags. (phys.org)
  • Analyzing the patterns of DNA methylation in the brains of 21 nurses and 21 foragers, the team found 155 regions of DNA that had different tag patterns in the two types of bees. (phys.org)
  • scientific
  • We also describe pertinent examples from scientific literature that demonstrate the epigenetic aspects on nuclear receptor coregulators in nutrition and metabolism. (springer.com)
