Researchers hunt for the causes and basis of wheat sensitivities
(Johannes Gutenberg Universitaet Mainz) Up to five percent of all people who eat wheat products suffer from wheat sensitivities. These are immunological responses to wheat and related cereals such as spelt, rye, and barley, and include celiac disease, wheat allergy, and non-celiac-non allergy wheat sensitivity. Now doctors and biomedical and agricultural researchers at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz and the University of Hohenheim have joined forces to study these disorders, especially NCWS.

Since receiving my celiac diagnosis just over three years ago, I've learned a lot along the way. I'm sure that if you're reading this and you have celiac disease that you too are learning something new with every step in your journey back to health. One thing that I have noticed, which I feel is unique to celiac disease sufferers, is that whenever I try and share my experiences, and what I have learned about my needs with regard to food, my statements are often met with anger, ire, or just completely dismissed. Because going gluten-free has become such a trend, many people are just so misinformed about what celiac disease...

Key gene in development of celiac disease has been found in 'junk' DNA
40% of the population carry the main risk factor for celiac disease but only 1% develop the disease. A newly found gene that influences its development has been found in what until recently has been known as ‘junk’ DNA. Celiac disease is a chronic, immunological disease that is manifested as intolerance to gluten proteins present in wheats to an inflammatory reaction in the small intestine that hampers the absorption of nutrients. The only treatment is a strict, life-long, gluten-free diet. (Source: ScienceDaily Headlines)

[Report] A long noncoding RNA associated with susceptibility to celiac disease
Recent studies have implicated long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) as regulators of many important biological processes. Here we report on the identification and characterization of a lncRNA, lnc13, that harbors a celiac disease–associated haplotype block and represses expression of certain inflammatory genes under homeostatic conditions. Lnc13 regulates gene expression by binding to hnRNPD, a member of a family of ubiquitously expressed heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoproteins (hnRNPs). Upon stimulation, lnc13 levels are reduced, thereby allowing increased expression of the repressed genes. Lnc13 levels are significantly ...

[Perspective] A lncRNA links genomic variation with celiac disease
The majority of human single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) associated with increased disease risk map to noncoding regions of the genome. The nucleotide variations therefore cannot be directly related to changes in the function of proteins. Indeed, SNPs frequently localize to DNA regulatory elements such as enhancers or promoters, or within intergenic regions that are transcribed to produce long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs). LncRNAs are RNA molecules longer than 200 nucleotides that do not encode proteins; in many instances, they regulate gene expression through diverse mechanisms.

You see it almost everywhere these days — energy drinks that advertise the wonder of B vitamins. And they all claim to give you the energy boost to get you through your day.

It’s true that B vitamins are essential to your body’s energy metabolism. And B12 in particular is crucial for energy. When you take in high-quality B12, you unlock the energy contained in the foods you eat and turn it into glucose you can burn. But fortified junk food is no way to get your vita...
