Research on Aging – New Discoveries by the National Human Genome Research Institute

Researchers at the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) have found that a genetic splicing mechanism is a trigger for both premature aging syndrome and normal cellular aging. This new study provides insights into how progerin may participate in the normal aging process. They published the results of their study on June 13, 2011 in the early online edition of the Journal of Clinical Investigation. The study investigates the interaction between a toxic protein called progerin and telomeres.
