Hidden genetic defects contain real risks for serious diseases

For the first time researchers from Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Radboudumc, Maastricht UMC+ and international colleagues have gained insight into the "hidden genetic defects" of the general European population. This is ...

Mutations in the neurochondrin gene linked to epilepsy

Mutations in the neurochondrin (NCDN) gene can cause epilepsy, neurodevelopmental delay and intellectual disability. The gene mutation significantly impairs contacts and signaling between neurons in the brain. This is the ...

Overlooked cilium could be genetic key to common diseases

Until recently, scientists believed that the primary cilium—an antenna-like structure found on the surface of most human cells—was largely vestigial and had little bearing on the day-to-day lives of human beings. But ...
