Ethanol

If you are like many Americans, you drink alcohol at least occasionally. For many people, moderate drinking is probably safe. It may even have health benefits, including reducing your risk of certain heart problems. Moderate drinking is one drink a day for women or anyone over 65, and two drinks a day for men under 65. Some people should not drink at all, including alcoholics, children, pregnant women, people on certain medicines and people with some medical conditions. If you have questions about whether it is safe for you to drink, speak with your healthcare provider. Anything more than moderate drinking can be risky. Binge drinking - drinking five or more drinks at one time - can damage your health and increase your risk for accidents, injuries and assault. Years of heavy drinking can lead to liver disease, heart disease, cancer and pancreatitis. It can also cause problems at home, at work and with friends. .

Transforming Growth Factor beta1

Transforming Growth Factor Beta 1, encoded by the TGFB1 gene, is a member of the TGF-beta family. This secreted multifunctional peptide controls proliferation, differentiation, and other functions in many cell types. Many cells synthesize TGF-Beta 1 and essentially all of them have specific receptors for this peptide. TGF-Beta 1 regulates the actions of many other peptide growth factors and determines a positive or negative direction of their effects. (from Swiss-Prot) [from NCI]

Spinal muscular atrophy

Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is characterized by progressive muscle weakness resulting from degeneration and loss of the anterior horn cells (i.e., lower motor neurons) in the spinal cord and the brain stem nuclei. Onset ranges from before birth to adolescence or young adulthood. Poor weight gain, sleep difficulties, pneumonia, scoliosis, and joint contractures are common complications. Before the genetic basis of SMA was understood, it was classified into clinical subtypes; however, it is now apparent that the phenotype of SMA associated with disease-causing mutations of SMN1 spans a continuum without clear delineation of subtypes. Nonetheless, classification by age of onset and maximum function achieved is useful for prognosis and management; subtypes include: SMA 0 (proposed), with prenatal onset and severe joint contractures, facial diplegia, and respiratory failure; SMA I, with onset before age six months; SMA II, with onset between age six and 12 months; SMA III, with onset in childhood after age 12 months and ability to walk at least 25 meters achieved; and SMA IV, with adult onset. [from GeneReviews]
