Gene regulation may be the key to longer life

Researchers have discovered that long-lived organisms often show high expression of genes involved in DNA repair, RNA transport and cellular skeletal regulation, and low expression of genes involved in inflammation and energy consumption. University of Rochester researchers interested in the genetics of longevity propose new targets for anti-aging and age-related disorders. Mammals aging at vastly …
