Newly Discovered Gene May Increase Inflammation in Asthmatic Patients

Australian scientist have revealed in a breakthrough discovery that, PAG1, a gene, is likely to boost inflammation in people who suffer from conditions like asthma.

Dr. Manuel Ferreira from QIMR Berghofer’s Asthma Genetics laboratory stated that in massive study in genetics, they have discovered an unknown variant of gene which can increase the risk of asthma and similar allergies by approximately twenty percent. As it wasn’t certainly obvious which gene will be impacted by that variant, series of molecular experiments were designed for the identification of that particular gene.

To this Dr. Ferreira further added that they are now aware that as the risk variant was identified at a significant distance from the gene PAG1, the risk variant can easily reach that gene via DNA looping. DNA looping is the name of the entire process. It is also seems to increase PAG1 expression in people suffering from Asthma.

The recent study seems to contradict many of the previous studies which were related to the functioning of PAG1 gene in our immune system and serves for a potential new treatment target. He also said that in many of the studies on animal models and cells of human no stimulation was noticed in the immune system.

Dr. Ferreira also believes that the functioning of PAG1 can also be dependent on the context of the challenges in immune in conditions like allergen or virus it can have a pro-inflammatory response. A variant identified by him in the year 2016 that was responsible for a clinical trial underway in Brisbane, which is examining if a drug used to cure rheumatoid arthritis can be helpful in curing asthma.

Thirty to fifty percent of people suffer from some kind of allergy, which is mostly common in their early years, stated Dr.
