Scientists have identified the molecular mechanisms of aging

Ученые определили молекулярные механизмы старения

The researchers used a biomarker called epigenetic clock to identify the gene, which is closely associated with human aging.

There are various ways of measuring the age of the body. Chronological age – a measure of how long the body was alive, while the biological age shows how well the body functions at the molecular level. One of the most useful tools for measuring biological age are considered as epigenetic clock, suggested by Trey INCERAM and Steve Horvath in 2013.
