Chinese scientists are developing a gene to slow down aging
Beijing scientist are working on a brand-new gene of therapy where the end of the goal is to have this treatment towards humans. The methodology which is use here where the professor where they studied the look on a mouse which has 6 to 8 months of signs where they saw an improvement of appearance and strength.
The team from the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) used the CAS9/CRISPR method, which means they edited genes by cutting the DNA and then allowing it to repair itself naturally. Kinda like Photoshop. The KAT7 gene is just one out of thousands found in all mammals. In their research, they inactivated the gene in the livers of the mice. Where this cell types of humand and other organs of the mice and other pre-clinical animals where they will start to strategies it for human aging and other health conditions.
