Fountain of youth

genetic engineering Genetic engineering seems to have found the elusive fountain of youth, or rather, the protein of youth.A group of scientists from Newcastle University in England found a way to enhance the natural repair mechanism of the body.

They found that higher levels of a specialized protein, known as PARP-1, helps cells to recover more effectively. PARP-1 works by restoring the damaged strands of genetic material, DNA.

DNA damage that causes aging and is also a factor in cancer development, so the finding fountain of youth could also lead to the discovery of new treatments against this disease.
