Gene Discovery May Stop Skin Aging

The discovery of a gene involved in an inherited skin disease opens the possibility of treatments for skin aging.


Scientists believe that the body chemical which is produced by the gene acts like “biological glue” holding other skin forming chemicals together.

The protein, called extracellular matrix protein (ECM) may act like a natural sunscreen to prevent sun damage and prevent the skin from aging.
