La influencia del estilo de vida en los telómeros y la longevidad

Los telómeros son regiones de secuencias repetidas de nucleótidos que se encuentran en ambos extremos de cada cromosoma. Estas estructuras protegen el genoma de la degradación nucleotídica, la recombinación innecesaria y la fusión intercromosomal. Los telómeros, por tanto, juegan un papel muy importante en la preservación de la información en nuestro genoma. http://revistageneticamedica.com/blog/estilo-vida-telomeros-longevidad/

Association of Glycemic Variability in Type 1 Diabetes With Progression of Microvascular Outcomes in the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial
