AgeX Identifies Genes Implicated in Regeneration and Cancer


Key points from article :

Study that reveals genes implicated in tissue regeneration, cancer, and aging.

Worked in collaboration with BioTime and Insilico Medicine.

Utilized artificial intelligence (AI) technology to parse millions of gene expression data points.

Candidate genes are expressed differently in tissues early in development when they are capable of regeneration.

COX7A1 displayed a rare profile of being nearly universally dysregulated in diverse types of cancer.

Link to video discussion on the possibility of inducing tissue regeneration (iTR).

The study was published in the Oncotarget journal.
