Asthma genetics and epigenetics

Guest Editors: Kari Nadeau (Stanford University, USA) and Rachel Miller (Columbia Medical University, USA)

Allergy, Asthma & Clinical Immunology and Clinical Epigenetics present 'Asthma genetics and epigenetics', a cross-journal thematic series. This series aims to highlight the epigenetic mechanisms and genetic factors which contribute to the pathogenesis and epidemiology of asthma.

This collection of articles has not been sponsored and articles have undergone the journal's standard peer-review process.

  1. This review covers basic aspects of histone modification and the role of posttranslational histone modifications in the development of allergic diseases, including the immune mechanisms underlying this develop...

  2. Physical activity is associated with improvement in lung function; however, pollution exposure during physical activity can lead to a transient reduction in lung function. This paradoxical relationship may be ...
