A key gene in the development of celiac disease has been found in 'junk' DNA
(University of the Basque Country ) Forty percent of the population carry the main risk factor for celiac disease but only 1 percent go down with it. A new gene that influences its development has been found in what until recently has been known as 'junk' DNA. The research, in which a UPV/EHU group has participated, has been published in Science.

Medical News Today: Clues to celiac disease found in 'junk RNA'
Celiac disease is a relatively common immune disorder affecting the gut; recent research finds clues to its origin in the mysterious genomic world of long noncoding RNA molecules. (Source: Health News from Medical News Today)

[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. On page 91 of this issue, Castellanos-Rubio...

[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 ...

Can You Really Bottle Energy?
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. Sadly, it’s a big marketing ploy. The quick energy in these drinks usually comes from their high sugar and synthetic caffeine content. 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...
