The Horvath clock, a means of assessing a person’s “epigenetic age,” measures DNA methylation levels, which increase as a person ages, and can even predict how long a person will live. Recent discoveries in the field of aging research may have identified the signal that can manipulate the epigenome to restore proteins – including sirtuins – to their earlier, younger functional capacity. In this clip, Dr. David Sinclair describes how epigenomic modifications can influence how an organism ages, potentially reversing years of age-related damage.
