Howard Cedar and Aharon Razin, collaborators at Hebrew University for
the past 30 years, were the first to discover exactly how the switches
what type of study would be done to link epigenic and environmental changes?
The past decade has also been productive in developing strong links
between aberrant DNA methylation and aging, says Jean-Pierre Issa, a
professor of medicine at The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer
Center. He presented information on aging and epigenetic effects at a
November 2005 conference titled “Environmental Epigenomics, Imprinting,
and Disease Susceptibility,” held in Durham, North Carolina, and
sponsored in part by the NIEHS. Some of the strongest, decade-old
evidence shows progressive increases in DNA methylation in aging colon
tissues, and more recent evidence links hypermethylation with
