Scientists identify candidate genes that affect lifespan in men and women

USAsenescenceResearchers from the Intervention Testing Program funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIA) publish in the journal Scienceresearch reportcall themFoundMultiple candidate genes affecting lifespan. “Some candidate genes affected lifespan in women, while others affected lifespan in men,” said Randy Strong, Ph. “One set of genes increases lifespan in both sexes. Very rare in this type of study, these findings are made in a population of mice that are genetically as diverse as humans.” The next step is to scrutinize these candidate genes to identify Find those genes responsible for extending lifespan. This does not prove that these genes in humans affect human lifespan, the researchers said. But it’s another reason to continue studying the genetic basis of longevity.
