Puzzling role of genetic risk factors in human longevity: "risk alleles" as pro-longevity variants.
Complex diseases are major contributors to human mortality in old age. Paradoxically, many genetic variants that have been associated with increased risks of such diseases are found in genomes of long-lived people, and do ...
How genes influence life span: the biodemography of human survival.
(Rejuvenation Res, 2012-08)
BACKGROUND: In genome-wide association studies (GWAS) of human life span, none of the genetic variants has reached the level of genome-wide statistical significance. The roles of such variants in life span regulation remain ...
