Enzymes Found That Affect Lifespan

HHMI Investigator and Professor of Genetics, Genomics and Development Andrew Dillin, Johan Auwerx of EPFL, Switzerland, and teams of international and UC Berkeley researchers have discovered epigenetic switches in worms that are also linked to increased lifespan in mammals. The two resulting papers will be reported in the May 19th issue of Cell and are available online.
