Exercise Training Epigenetically Benefits Overall Health

By Regenr8 | Sep 14, 2021

There’s no question that exercise is good for you, not only for developing a great physique but for overall health. Some would even say that regular exercise, combined with proper nutrition, is better at preventing and treating certain diseases than many pharmacological interventions. Even so, medical experts are still trying to determine exactly how physical …

Predicting Schizophrenia Risk Based on Epigenetics

By Regenr8 | Aug 31, 2021

Schizophrenia is a complex and severe mental illness that affects approximately 1% of the global population. Often misdiagnosed for symptoms similar to other cognitive disorders, this condition lacks a valid biochemical laboratory test to support its clinical diagnosis. Studies have shown that schizophrenia has both genetic and environmental components, suggesting that epigenetic dysregulation is likely …

A Stimulating Environment May Prevent The Brain From Epigenetically Aging

By Regenr8 | Aug 17, 2021

One unfortunate side effect of aging is loss of brain function. For most people, it starts off here and there with some “forgetfulness” or a modest decline in other thinking skills. But brain loss can be progressive as we age and lead to more problematic conditions such as dementia or Alzheimer’s. One possible key to …

Epigenetic Alteration Linked To Lung Cancer Relapse

By Regenr8 | Aug 3, 2021

Chemotherapy has been the mainstay for lung cancer treatment for decades. Unfortunately, even after an initial positive response to it, tumors can sometimes develop drug resistance. When this happens, there is little doctors can do to improve a patient’s outcome, as the survival rate after relapse can be devastatingly low. Understanding exactly what causes this …

Scientists Study How Selective Mating in Nematodes Can Result in Permanent Epigenetic Changes

By Regenr8 | Jul 20, 2021

If the study of epigenetics has taught us anything, it’s that we can no longer blame our entire biological inheritance solely on our DNA. Part of that blame can be traced back to the environment that our parents or grandparents were exposed to during their lifetime. Alterations in their epigenetic profile that resulted from these …

Different Food Groups Can Impact Blood Pressure Through Epigenetics

By Regenr8 | Jul 6, 2021

The risk of a person living in an industrialized country developing high blood pressure during their life is over 90% [1]. Left uncontrolled for a long time, high blood pressure together with conditions like obesity, diabetes, and excess lipid (hyperlipidemia) can generate serious illnesses: heart disease, stroke, kidney failure, dementia, and early death [1]. Despite …

Epigenetic Mechanisms May Help Plants Remember and Adapt to Hot Weather

By Regenr8 | Jun 22, 2021

Global warming is an ever-growing threat to ecosystems all over the world. Temperatures are continually rising, and weather patterns have become more irregular and aggressive—making it difficult for all organisms to survive. Plants are an essential part of our ecosystem, and their survival can benefit from the rising CO2 levels, but severely high temperatures present …

Epigenetic Factors Determine the Characteristics of B-Cells

By Regenr8 | Jun 8, 2021

Most people know antibodies as the “warriors” of our immune system, helping us fight off invading pathogens. But not all antibodies are made for this purpose. Some perform necessary maintenance functions, such as clearing the blood of wastes like oxidized LDL cholesterol. These, too, are just as vital for keeping us safe and healthy. Understanding …
