Professor Lee Seung-Jae (LIFE), Son Hee-hwa (LIFE Ph.D. candidate), and Seo Mi-hwa (LIFE Post.-DOC.) found out that RNA is involved in organismal aging process, by collaborating with Center for plant aging research at the Institute for Basic Science.
It is the first time to find out how RNA changes the state with age, or what RNA acts in the process of aging. The team discovered that decomposing process of damaged or abnormal RNAs is important in maintaining intracellular RNA condition and suppressing the aging. The result is published in Nature Communications, one of the sister journals of Nature.
The research is supported by Korea Health Technology R&D Project of Ministry of Health and Welfare, Green Science Project of POSCO, Institute for Basic Science, and Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning.
