SNP Of The Week: FUT2

SNP Of The Week: FUT2 Are you chronically sick? Have you tried various diets that don't seem to have any positive effect on you? Do you know your secretor type? Do you even know how being a secretor (or non-secretor) can influence your health? FUT2 (or Fucosyltransferase 2) is involved [...]

NOD2 Gene and Susceptibility to Colitis

NOD2 Gene and Susceptibility to Colitis A study found that NOD2 polymorphism makes one more susceptible to colitis from over use of antibiotics. "Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) etiology involves genetic susceptibility, environmental triggers, and the gut microbiome. Antibiotic exposure is associated with IBD, both in early life and adulthood. Here, [...]

EMF, Ionizing Radiation, and SOD2

EMF, Ionizing Radiation and SOD2 Reactive oxygen species (ROS) act as a mediator of ionizing radiation-induced cellular damage. Previous studies have indicated that MnSOD (SOD2) plays a critical role in protection against ionizing radiation in mammalian cells. Pathway analysis revealed different expression profiles in irradiated control cells and irradiated SOD2-overexpressing cells. These [...]

Brand new updates to Variant & Excipient reports!

The New HLA Section We are proud to introduce the HLA section on the Variant report. In the future we will be launching videos next to specific HLA mutations. HLA cell surface proteins are responsible for the regulation of our immune system. Human leukocyte antigens  help the immune system distinguish the body's own proteins from [...]

Genetics, Nutrition and Drug Addiction

GENETICS NUTRITION AND DRUG ADDICTION I fractured my neck and skull which was misdiagnosed as whiplash and a concussion. A few years later I developed IVDD in my lumbar region. Before doctors went in and started repairing things, they had me on narcotics, muscle relaxants and benzodiazepines. After having multiple surgeries to repair damage, I [...]

Impacts To Our SNPs via Food/Toxins and the Resulting Domino Effect On Their Genetic Expression

You are more susceptible to viruses when Vitamin B6 (B6) and the amino acid, lysine, are low. Why? Without B6 the spleen cannot clear pyrroles. Without lysine, B6 cannot be utilized. Without B6 the body makes endogenous oxalates. Oxalates can come from food we eat, some considered very healthy, or they can be made by [...]
