According to de Lucia and colleagues (2020), yes they do. People with certain variants of genes that play a key role in brain ageing seem to respond better to a healthy lifestyle. Some versions of the SIRT1 gene are affected by amount of exercise and some variants of the GRB10 gene by whether people eat… Read More
Is Muscle Fn14 Gene Expression Associated with Fat-Free Mass Retention during Energy Deficit at High Altitude?
Research Paper Title Muscle Fn14 gene expression is associated with fat-free mass retention during energy deficit at high altitude. Background Intramuscular factors that modulate fat-free mass (FFM) loss in lowlanders exposed to energy deficit during high-altitude (HA) sojourns remain unclear. Muscle inflammation may contribute to FFM loss at HA by inducing atrophy and inhibiting myogenesis… Read More
Whey Growth Factor Extract & Resistance Training
Research Paper Title No Effect of a Whey Growth Factor Extract during Resistance Training on Strength, Body Composition, or Hypertrophic Gene Expression in Resistance-Trained Young Men. Background Growth factors can be isolated from bovine milk to form a whey growth factor extract (WGFE). This study examined whether WGFE promoted activation of the AKT/mTOR pathway enabling… Read More
Increasing Physical Capacity: Soldiers & Gene Modification
Article Title The Real Captain America: Bioengineering the Super Soldiers of Tomorrow. Extract “With the rapidly advancing field of genomics and gene modification, the distinct possibility has arisen for applying these technologies to enhance a soldier’s physical capacity. Genetic modification or “’gene doping’, already banned from its possible future use in the Olympics, has many… Read More
Genes: How Your Lifestyle Choices Could Affect Your Children…
For the first time, we have a mechanism that could explain how your lifestyle choices may impact the genes of your children and grandchildren. Mounting evidence suggests that environmental factors such as smoking, diet and stress can leave their mark on the genes of future generations. For example, girls born to Dutch women who were… Read More
How Does Depression Present in the British Army?
Research Paper Title The Presentation of Depression in the British Army. Background The British Army is predominately composed of young men, often from disadvantaged backgrounds, in which Depression is a common mental health disorder. Therefore, the purpose of this research was to construct a predictive model detailing the presentation of depression in the army that… Read More
New Partners Announced: Ms Dietary Pattern & Mr Gene Expression
Research Paper Title Associations between Dietary Patterns and Gene Expression Profiles of Healthy Men and Women: A Cross-sectional Study. Background Diet regulates gene expression profiles by several mechanisms. The objective of this study was to examine gene expression in relation with dietary patterns. Methods Two hundred and fifty four participants from the greater Quebec City… Read More
