Epigenetic alterations as a cause of aging
Understanding epigenetic alterations that cause your body to age: an overview of the mechanisms involved.
Part 1: Aging and epigenetic alterations
Let’s get into what epigenetics are, and dive into epigenetic alterations and how they affect aging.
Part 2: Epigenetics and non-coding RNA: miRNAs and LncRNAs in the aging process
Not all DNA codes for something – non-coding RNAs such as miRNAs and LcnRNAs also play a role in the aging process.
Part 3: Epigenetic clock, a powerful tool to measure aging
Epigenetics can also be used as a tool to measure aging, by mapping out the modifications that occur with age.
Part 4: Epigenome editing, a new anti-aging technology for longevity
With epigenetics, a new technology has come to light: epigenome editing, made possible by technologies such as the use of CRISPR-Cas9.
