Interaction of Hereditary and Epigenetic Mechanisms in the Regulation of Gene Expression

Autoren:Roman, T.; Aumüller, E.; Berner, C.; Haslberger, A.G.
Abstrakt:Hereditary dispositions and environmental factors such as nutrition and the natural and societal environment interact with human health. Diet compounds raise increasing interest due to their influence in epigenetic gene expression. Nutrition and specific food ingredients have been shown to alter epigenetic marks such as DNA methylation or histone acetylation involving regulation of genes with relevance for fundamental mechanisms such as antioxidative control, cell cycle regulation or expression of immune mediators.
