Differential Gene Expression and Aging

  title={Differential Gene Expression and Aging},
  author={Laurent Seroude},
It has been established that an intricate program of gene expression controls progression through the different stages in development. The equally complex biological phenomenon known as aging is genetically determined and environmentally modulated. This review focuses on the genetic component of aging, with a special emphasis on differential gene expression. At least two genetic pathways regulating organism longevity act by modifying gene expression. Many genes are also subjected to age… CONTINUE READING
