Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute Researchers Found 4 Gene Loci Predisposing People to the Most Common Subtype of Migraine


6/11/2012 7:22:45 AM

Researchers studied genetic data of more than 11 000 people and found altogether six genes that predispose to migraine without aura. Four of these genes are new and two of them confirm previous findings. The new genes identified in this study provide further evidence for the hypothesis that dysregulation of molecules important in transmitting signals between brain neurons contribute to migraine. Two of the genes support the hypothesis of a possible role of blood vessels and thus disturbances in blood flow.
