Blood Epigenetic Age may Predict Cancer Incidence and Mortality
Biological measures of aging are important for understanding the health of an aging population, with epigenetics particularly promising. Previous studies found that tumor tissue is epigenetically older than its donors are ...
DNA methylation-based measures of biological age: meta-analysis predicting time to death
(Impact Journals LLC, 2016)
Estimates of biological age based on DNA methylation patterns, often referred to as “epigenetic age”, “DNAm age”, have been shown to be robust biomarkers of age in humans. We previously demonstrated that independent of ...
Effects of particulate matter exposure on blood 5-hydroxymethylation: results from the Beijing truck driver air pollution study
(Taylor & Francis, 2015)
Previous studies have reported epigenetic changes induced by environmental exposures. However, previous investigations did not distinguish 5-methylcytosine (5mC) from a similar oxidative form with opposite functions, ...
