Potential Treatment Target Patients with A Common Type of Heart Failure

In this study, researchers have identified a potential treatment target for patients with a common type of heart failure. They tested the effect of an investigational drug called givinostat in treating diastolic dysfunction, which is a heart relaxation abnormality that contributes to heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF). The study has published in the journal Science Translational Medicine.

Crystal Structure of Enzyme That Plays a Key Role in DNA Methylation

According to a new study, researchers team have solved the crystal structure for an enzyme that plays a key role in DNA methylation, the process by which methyl groups are added to the DNA molecule. DNA methylation alters gene expression. This fundamental cellular mechanism critically influences plant, animal, and human development. This study is published in Nature.
