Impact of air quality on lung health: myth or reality? Marino E, Caruso M, Campagna D, Polosa R. Ther Adv Chronic Dis. 2015 Sep;6(5):286-98. doi: 10.1177/2040622315587256. Review. PMID: #26336597# (Free)
Epigenetic mechanisms, such as DNA methylation, DNA hydroxymethylation, post-translational modifications (PTMs) of histone proteins affecting nucleosome remodelling, and regulation by small and large non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) work in concert with cis and trans acting elements to drive appropriate gene expression.
Advances in detection methods and development of dedicated platforms and methylation arrays resulted in an explosion of information on aberrantly methylated sequences linking (...)
Complex fibroadenoma is a sub type of fibroadenoma harbouring one or more of the following features:
papillary apocrine metaplasia
sclerosing adenosis and
cysts larger than 3 mm
They fall under the broad group of "adenomatous breast lesions".
Complex fibroadenomas are often smaller than simple fibroadenomas (1.3 cm compared with 2.5 cm in simple fibroadenomas).
When histopathology on core biopsy reveals a higher-risk lesion, such as atypical lobular (...)

The domestication of dogs was an important episode in the development of human civilization. The precise timing and location of this event is debated and little is known about the genetic changes that accompanied the transformation of ancient wolves into domestic dogs.
it has been conducted a whole-genome resequencing of dogs and wolves to identify 3.8 million genetic variants used to identify 36 genomic regions that probably represent targets for selection during dog domestication. (...)
(Not to be confused with Hominoidea, Hominidae, Homininae, or Hominina.)
The Hominini is a tribe of the subfamily Homininae; it comprises three subtribes:
Hominina, with its one genus Homo;
Australopithecina, comprising several extinct genera (see taxobox);
Panina, with its one genus Pan, the chimpanzees.
Members of the human clade, that is, the Hominini, including Homo and those species of the australopithecines that arose after the split from the chimpanzees, are called (...)
The Pleistocene (symbol "PS") is the geological epoch which lasted from about 2,588,000 to 11,700 years ago, spanning the world’s recent period of repeated glaciations.
The Pleistocene is the first epoch of the Quaternary Period or sixth epoch of the Cenozoic Era.
The end of the Pleistocene corresponds with the end of the last glacial period. It also corresponds with the end of the Paleolithic age used in archaeology.
In the ICS timescale, the Pleistocene is divided into four stages or (...)
