Chromosome 13 - Brca2 And Dna Damage

EXPLORE THE RI ADVENT CALENDAR: rigb.org.uk/advent Mistakes in the recipe of your DNA -- if bits of code go missing, or get swapped or damaged -- could spell the difference between life and death. DNA often gets damaged by everyday processes within our bodies, but also from external factors such as UV radiation or tobacco smoke. Luckily, our bodies are well equipped to fix this damage thanks, in part, to the BRCA2 ...

Chromosome 19 - Keeping Things Moving

EXPLORE THE RI ADVENT CALENDAR: rigb.org.uk/advent We all need a bit of cholesterol as it's used in our cell membranes, but too much of it can put us at risk of cardiovascular disease. One of the most dangerous types of cholesterol is low-density lipoproteins (LDLs). Usually LDLs are removed from our bloodstream by LDL receptors -- proteins which are coded for by a gene on chromosome 19. Using the London underground as an ...

Chromosome 18 - Junk Dna, Or Is It?

EXPLORE THE RI ADVENT CALENDAR: rigb.org.uk/advent Of all our chromosomes, chromosome 18 is the least dense in terms of genes, with barely any of its rather paltry 76 million base pairs encoding actual genes. As with the rest of the human genome, a large portion of it is considered junk DNA , so called because it doesn't appear to have any particular function. There might just be a reason, however, that these seemingly pointless sequences ...

Chromosome 15 - Eye Colour

EXPLORE THE RI ADVENT CALENDAR: rigb.org.uk/advent The human eye is a remarkable feat of engineering, but from the outside the main thing we notice is the colour. Eye colour is partly dictated by a gene on chromosome 15 called OCA2, which gives instructions for the production of a pigment called melanin. Dr Tim Cockerill explains how different amounts of melanin lead to different eye colours, and how the production of blue eyes can ...

Chromosome 9 - It's In The Blood

EXPLORE THE RI ADVENT CALENDAR: rigb.org.uk/advent Blood transfusion used to be a hit & miss affair, until the discovery of blood groups. The group most people have heard of is the ABO group, controlled by a gene on Chromosome 9 as explained by Nicole Thornton. This gene controls what blood type you are - whether A, B, O or AB. However, there are actually over 30 other blood group systems, most of which are extremely ...

Chromosome 7 - I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings

EXPLORE THE RI ADVENT CALENDAR: rigb.org.uk/advent It has been speculated that the gene FOXP2 on chromosome 7 is linked to the uniquely human skill of processing language. Researchers have proposed that it is also linked to the ability of song birds, like the canary, to learn their beautifully complex songs. They have also suggested that the role this gene plays is linked to neuroplasticity - thow your brain changes over time. To learn ...

Chromosome 11 - Epigenetics: Creating Meaning In The Blueprint

EXPLORE THE RI ADVENT CALENDAR: rigb.org.uk/advent DNA was long considered the blueprint of life, expected to reveal everything there was to know about a particular human being. It turns out, however, that we still don't fully understand how these genetic sequences code for all that we see around us, and that there is a whole extra layer of information to our genetic code called epigenetics . Epigenetic markers on our DNA influence the ...
