Perceived stress and biological risk: is the link stronger in Russians than in Taiwanese and Americans?
Allostatic load theory implies a relationship between exposure to psychological stress and multi-system physiological dysregulation. We used data from population-based samples of men and women in Russia (Moscow; n = 1800; ...
Biogenetic mechanisms predisposing to complex phenotypes in parents may function differently in their children.
(J Gerontol A Biol Sci Med Sci, 2013-07)
This study focuses on the participants of the Long Life Family Study to elucidate whether biogenetic mechanisms underlying relationships among heritable complex phenotypes in parents function in the same way for the same ...
