Naked mole rat DNA sequenced
Arlan Richardson, Ph.D., director of the Sam and Ann Barshop Institute for Longevity and Aging Studies, said: "The data in this Nature paper are very important for aging research because they give us the first glimpse into how the naked mole rat lives 10 times longer than its distant cousins, the mouse and rat."
Rochelle Buffenstein, Ph.D., professor of physiology at the UT Health Science Center San Antonio, worked on the study with Thomas Park, Ph.D., of the University of Chicago; Vadim Gladyshev, Ph.D., of Harvard Medical School; the Beijing Genomics Institute; and other collaborators.
