Erik identified robust markers of human ageing

The expression in blood of a novel gene network containing the ASF1A histon chaperone gene is a robust signature of human ageing. This observation was made by a collaboration of scientists from the Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC) and the Delft University of Technology (TU), The Netherlands. The ASF1A gene network, discovered in the joint analysis of four blood transcriptome studies and confirmed in an independent study, is indicative of chronological age and survival into old age. The findings were published online last week in the scientific journal “Aging Cell”.
