La dipendenza da droga è ereditaria?

Pinterest Google+

Alcuni ricercatori della Fudan University di Shanghai, hanno scoperto che alcuni comportamenti correlati alla dipendenza dalla cocaina sono cambiamenti nella struttura del Dna, che vengono ereditati: dei piccoli composti, chiamati gruppi metile, si legano infatti alla doppia elica e modificano l’espressione di alcuni geni.

Il gruppo, guidato da Lan Ma, ha separato i ratti maschi in base al loro livello di motivazione a cercare cocaina ed è emerso che i figli di quelli con un livello più alto presentavano lo stesso comportamento. Mentre quelli meno propensi a diventare dipendenti conferivano ai figli una specie di resistenza contro la tossicodipendenza.

I due gruppi di ratti si potevano distinguere anche in base alla posizione sul Dna dei gruppi metile e alcune di queste differenze erano ancora presenti nello sperma dei figli.

Le modificazioni sul Dna si riflettevano nel diverso funzionamento di alcune parti del cervello: i circuiti legati alla ricompensa e alla dipendenza che si trovano nel nucleus accumbens, un sistema di neuroni localizzato nello striato.

    Together with almost everything that seems to be building within this particular area, a significant percentage of points of view are rather exciting. However, I appologize, but I do not give credence to your whole plan, all be it radical none the less. It appears to everybody that your comments are actually not totally validated and in fact you are generally your self not really completely certain of your argument. In any case I did appreciate looking at it.
