A team of Israeli and U.S. scientists has discovered a gene that increases longevity in mammals. The team, led by Dr. Haim Cohen of Bar-Ilan University's Mina and Everard Goodman Faculty of Life Sciences, and including researchers from Hadassah Medical Center, the Hebrew University and Carnegie Mellon University, said the discovery increases the likelihood that similar activity can be found in a human gene. The results were published this week in the scientific journal Nature.
