lowers sound and vision

PCDH15: Gene associated with congenital deafness and blindness.


CASP7 : this protein called caspase is engaged in repairing self-inflicted holes in a cell’s membrane so that the cell has time to prepare a ‘cleaner’ programmed cell death, that is to say without being detrimental to the environment.

On a tightrope

AIFM2: this gene codes for a protein that removes excess iron, which can be toxic to cells (ferroptosis).

molecular degradation

CYP2E1: This gene plays an important role in alcohol degradation and the detoxication of substances such as paracetamol.

insulin resistance

TCF7L2: Gene involved in the development of type 2 diabetes.


EIF4EBP2: Gene coding for a protein involved in synaptic plasticity, learning and memory formation. The protein is known as a ‘disordered’ protein and its lack of stability gives rise to a new kind of biological regulation.

tenacious memory

CPEB3: Gene coding for a protein involved in enhancing learning and memory performance. This protein has prion-like properties.

the contours of heredity

MKI67: Gene coding for a protein which is important in maintaining the well-known shape of packed chromosomes.


KCNK18: This gene could be involved in migraine.


PNLIP: This gene codes for a protein which is involved in the digestion of fats, and plays an important role in animals that hibernate.


SHOC2: This gene is associated with Noonan syndrome, whose symptoms are developmental delays and hair loss.

our body’s timekeeper

OPN4: This gene is involved in synchronizing our biological rhythms with the alternation of day and night.

little holes

PRF1: This genes codes for perforin, a protein which is able to make holes in cell membranes, thus playing an important role in the destruction of defective cells.


DCLRE1C: This gene codes for the artemis protein which is involved in antibody production.

spotless cells

PITRM1: This gene codes for a protein involved in cleaning cells.
