Abstract: COLD SPRING HARBOR, NEW YORK--Plants might not get gray hair and wrinkles, but they could enhance our understanding of a purported human aging protein. The botanical version of the protein might help clarify the molecule's connection with decrepitude, scientists reported here on 7 October 2004 at the Molecular Genetics of Aging meeting.
