A group of around 250 genes involved in age-related brain deterioration has been identified by scientists at the Babraham Institute, Cambridge and Sapienza University, Rome. The research finds that changes to one of these genes, called Dbx2, could prematurely age brain stem cells, causing them to grow more slowly. ...

The study noted here provides numbers for the mutation rates in muscle stem cells, the stochastic damage that occurs over time as small numbers of errors slip past the highly efficient molecular machinery of cellular replication and DNA repair. The researchers used single cell genomic sequencing, a very useful and still comparatively new capability. ...
