The role of epigenetics in renal ageing

16:28 EDT 19 Jun 2017 | Nature Publishing

Epigenetic factors control gene expression and activity in response to environmental perturbation and regulate ageing processes throughout the life course. Here, the authors discuss the epigenetic regulation of signalling pathways that modulate ageing and their impact on the kidney.

The development and maintenance of an organism is orchestrated by a set of chemical reactions that switch parts of the genome off and on at strategic times and locations. Epigenetics is the study of these reactions and the factors that influence them. ...

Gene Expression
The process of gene expression is used by eukaryotes, prokaryotes, and viruses to generate the macromolecular machinery for life. Steps in the gene expression process may be modulated, including the transcription, RNA splicing, translation, and post-tran...
