A systematic review of the association between fatigue & genetic polymorphisms

Review abstract: Fatigue is one of the most common and distressing symptoms, leading to markedly decreased quality of life among a large subset of patients with a variety of disorders. Susceptibility to fatigue may be influenced by genetic factors including … Continue reading

A targeted genome association study examining transient receptor potential ion channels, acetylcholine receptors, and adrenergic receptors

Research abstract: BACKGROUND: Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, also known as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (CFS/ME) is a debilitating condition of unknown aetiology. It is characterized by a range of physiological effects including neurological, sensory and motor disturbances. This study examined candidate genes for … Continue reading

Natural killer cell & SNP dysfunction in ME/CFS

Research abstract: Aim: The aim of this paper was to determine natural killer (NK) cytotoxic activity and if single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and genotypes in transient receptor potential (TRP) ion channels and acetylcholine receptors (AChRs) were present in isolated NK … Continue reading

Genes disrupt signalling mechanisms in CFS

Research abstract: Background: The transient receptor potential (TRP) superfamily in humans comprises 27 cation channels with permeability to monovalent and divalent cations. These channels are widely expressed within humans on cells and tissues and have significant sensory and regulatory roles … Continue reading
