Gepatolentikuliarnaya degeneration

Gepatolentikuliarnaya degenerationGEPATOLENTIKULIARNAYA DEGENERATION (gepatolentikuliarnaya dystrophy, Reye degeneration, family youth hepatitis with degeneration of the striatum, the disease Westphal - Wilson - Konovalov and others) is a common disease characterized by metabolic copper, liver lesion type of cirrhosis and destructive processes in the brain. It occurs most often in adolescence, and, apparently, refers to genetically caused the fermentopathia, inheritance is transmitted in an autosomal recessive type. In the serum of patients reduced the content of ceruloplasmin linking copper, and greatly enhanced the absorption of copper in the intestine. This results in increased deposition of copper in the liver (which leads to the development of cirrhosis), the ganglia of the nervous system (causing toxic damage), in the skin, on the periphery of the cornea and other tissues. 5-10 times increasing the allocation of copper in the urine. The symptoms for. Читать полностью -->

the effects of Smoking depend on genes

the effects of Smoking depend on genesGerman scientists reported the discovery of a gene that increases the sensitivity of the organism to the effects of cigarette smoke. According to their data, people (especially children) who are carriers of a particular form of this gene, react contained in cigarette smoke tar in several times more than the average active and passive smokers. We are talking about gene, encoding the enzyme glutathione-S-transferase (GST). This enzyme is involved in the cleansing of the body from the products of metabolism of toxins produced when injected into the blood of cigarette tar. As shown by researchers from Children's hospital University of Munich, many people this gene is almost inactive, that is, the product of his "reading" does not possess all the properties of the enzyme GST. As a result, such people can not cope with the dangerous cigarette toxins. Читать полностью -->
