Genetic variant helps protect Latinas from breast cancer

Women of Latin American descent, particularly those with indigenous ancestry, may carry a genetic variant that protects them from breast cancer. Previous epidemiological studies have shown that Latinas seem to be less susceptible to developing breast cancer than women of other ethnicities.

Exome Sequencing Becoming A Powerful New Diagnostic Tool For Genetic Disorders

Chuck Bednar for redOrbit.com Your Universe Online Scientists at the Baylor College of Medicine Medical Genetics Laboratories and the UCLA Clinical Genomics Center are at the forefront of a new technique that could be a powerful tool for diagnosing rare genetic conditions. The technique is known as whole-exome sequencing and involves using cutting edge sequencing techniques to analyze the coding regions or exomes of thousands of genes at the same time, Baylor researchers Dr. Yaping Yang, Dr.

Genetic variant protects some Latina women from breast cancer

An international research collaboration led by UC San Francisco researchers has identified a genetic variant common in Latina women that protects against breast cancer. The variant, a difference in just one of the three billion “letters” in the human genome known as a single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP), originates from indigenous Americans and confers significant protection from breast cancer, particularly the more aggressive estrogen receptor-negative forms of the disease, which generally have a worse prognosis.

Whole exome sequencing can assist in early diagnosis of various disorders

Approximately one-fourth of the 3,386 patients whose DNA was submitted for clinical whole exome testing received a diagnosis related to a known genetic disease, often ending a long search for answers for them and their parents, said researchers from the Baylor College of Medicine departments of molecular and human genetics and pediatrics and the Baylor Human Genome Sequencing Center and the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston. In an online report in the Journal of the American Medical Association, the scientists led by Drs. Yaping Yang, laboratory director of the Whole Genome Laboratory at Baylor, and Christine Eng, professor of molecular and human genetics at Baylor and senior director of Baylor’s Medical Genetics Laboratories, found a molecular diagnosis (meaning a genetic mutation or variation linked to a disease) in 25 percent of the large group of cases confirming in this much larger group of patients the diagnostic yield from their initial report on the first 250 cases that appeared in the New England Journal of Medicine a little more than a year ago

Genetic risk for ADHD contributes to language, attention deficits in general population

Are deficits in attention limited to those with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) or is there a spectrum of attention function in the general population? The answer to this question has implications for psychiatric diagnoses and perhaps for society, broadly. A new study published in the current issue of Biological Psychiatry, by researchers at Cardiff University School of Medicine and the University of Bristol, suggests that there is a spectrum of attention, hyperactivity/impulsiveness and language function in society, with varying degrees of these impairments associated with clusters of genes linked with the risk for ADHD.

Genetic Testing Guidelines Issued For Muscular Dystrophy

Muscular Dystrophy (MD) is well-known as a disease that progressively weakens muscles, leading to muscle spasms, difficulty walking, and eventually difficulty breathing. What many people dont know is that MD is actually a group of diseases, each of which can have different effects on the human body.
