Anti-convulsant drug can modify DNA conformation and interact with chromosome proteins

Publicado em 28 setembro 2020
Results of recent studies involving valproic acid, used for decades as an anti-convulsant drug, show that it can interact with the conformation of DNA and regulate gene expression. These are some of the key findings from a project led by biologist Maria Luiza S. Mello at the University of Campinas (UNICAMP) in the state São Paulo, Brazil, with the collaboration of Benedicto de Campos Vidal, Emeritus Professor in the Biology Institute’s Department of Structural and Functional [...]
