Plant Breeding Integrated with Genomic-Enabled Prediction

Received: 09 June 2021;  Published: 15 September 2021;  doi: 10.21926/obm.genet.2103137

Abstract

Plant breeding programs have used conventional breeding methods, such as hybridization, induced mutations, and other methods to manipulate the plant genome within the species' natural genetic boundaries to improve crop varieties. However, repeatedly using conventional breeding methods mi [...]

Prenatal Testing – What Is It Good For? A Review and Critique

Received: 22 June 2021;  Published: 01 September 2021;  doi: 10.21926/obm.genet.2103136

Abstract

The goals of prenatal testing remain controversial and reflect competing interests of public health, patient rights, disability activists, scholars, feminist critics, commercial laboratories, judiciary/legislative trends, and medical science. This paper reviews and critiques the most com [...]

About Cryptic Acrocentric Pericentromeric Abnormalities in Infertile

Received: 16 April 2021;  Published: 25 August 2021;  doi: 10.21926/obm.genet.2103135

Abstract

Cryptic balanced chromosomal aberrations can be an underlying cause of infertility. In 2003 Cockwell and coworkers highlighted the relevance of euchromatic pericentric regions of acrocentric chromosomes that may be a yet ignored genomic region hosting cryptic rearrangements. Here we offe [...]

Encoding, Regression, and Classification of Transcription Factors’ Specificity and Methylation Effects

Received: 01 February 2021;  Published: 16 August 2021;  doi: 10.21926/obm.genet.2103134

Abstract

The methylation effects on protein-DNA interactions, which can be perceived as a special kind of specificity of transcription factors, have been successfully quantified in the last years by various methods. In this work, I give a summary about the sequence encoding scheme, the underlying [...]

Epigenetics and Medicine

Received: 23 March 2021;  Published: 30 July 2021;  doi: 10.21926/obm.genet.2103133

Abstract

Epigenetics is the study of how your behaviors and environment can cause changes that affect the way your genes work. Unlike genetic changes, epigenetic changes are reversible and do not change your DNA sequence, but they can change how your body reads a DNA seq [...]

Molecular Mechanisms of Feline Cancers

Received: 08 December 2020;  Published: 24 May 2021;  doi: 10.21926/obm.genet.2102131

Abstract

Feline cancers have not been studied as extensively as canine cancers, though they may offer similar advantages, with cats being immunocompetent animals subject to similar conditions as their human counterparts. The most common feline cancers include lymphoma, squamous cell carcinoma, sa [...]

Imagining Life with a Genetic Disorder: The Challenge of Evaluating Health States that Exist from Birth

Received: 29 March 2021;  Published: 14 May 2021;  doi: 10.21926/obm.genet.2102130

Abstract

This article explores difficulties encountered by those with no personal experience of a chronic disease or disability in accurately evaluating the quality of life with a condition present from birth. In most countries, cost-effectiveness analysis relies on ratings of health states by members [...]

Role of DNA Damage and MMP Loss in Radiosensitization-Induced Apoptosis by Ellagic Acid in HeLa Cells

Received: 22 September 2020;  Published: 14 May 2021;  doi: 10.21926/obm.genet.2102129

Abstract

Ellagic acid (EA) is a polyphenol found in grapes, pomegranates, walnuts, etc. exhibits anti-cancer properties. The current study was conducted to understand the radiosensitizing role of EA on HeLa cells. Monotherapy of EA and radiation was initially studied on HeLa cells. The addition of EA before [...]

Modulation of Gene Expression in Human Breast Cancer MCF7 and Prostate Cancer PC3 Cells by the Human Copper-Binding Peptide GHK-Cu.

Received: 20 January 2021;  Published: 06 April 2021;  doi: 10.21926/obm.genet.2102128

Abstract

Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women, while prostate cancer is the most common cancer affecting men. Despite significant advances in diagnostics and treatment, these cancers have a high risk of metastases and greatly reduce quality of life. Recently, it has been established t [...]
