SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Researchers at Baylor College of Medicine (BCM), Houston, Texas, have, for the first time, observed a unique way that DNA additions or deletions associated with a wide range of diseases are introduced in genes during cell division. Their findings are published in the current issue of the journal Cell. These types of “errors” have been associated with Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Potocki-Lupski Syndrome and other developmental and neurological disorders.
