Epigenetic Disorders

Epigenetic modifications are the cause for the disease developments, environmental exposure, drug treatment and aging. Epigenetic changes can be reversible and are potentially targeted by the pharmacological intervention. Epigenetic changes are the factors of human diseases, including Fragile X syndrome, Angelman’s syndrome, Prader-Willi syndrome, and various cancers. About 80% of brain disorders are related to multiple genomic defects in conjunction with environmental factors and epigenetic phenomena.The significant role of epigenetics in brain development and disease is due to the several factors like plasticity of epigenetics during all periods of brain development and aging as well as dynamic regulation in neurons.
