they could “cure” their HGPS mouse model by two two things. In figure C, they added telomerase activity. In figure D, they added a little extra LAP2α.

There are many who feel that telomeres and telomerase are not centrally related to aging. This study shows that for at least this classic model of premature aging, Sutton’ Law still applies.

The supply of water is nearly endless if we can keep the mesenchymal stem cell library frozen in our cartilage from aging when recruited. And if we can drain out the foul water (mutated stem cells), then we are going to be just fine.
