Biologists defined the genes connected with weakening of hearing in old age

Show original
Age decrease in hearing mentions more than a quarter of people is more senior than 65 years. This process seems so "natural" that still its mechanisms were studied and remain badly clear a little. Even the genetics of hearing is investigated, as a rule, on patients with the congenital violations which are showing at quite early age. However authors of new work became interested in genes which can be involved in weakening of hearing at healthy people, and found 38 such sites. About it they write in article published in the PLOS Biology magazine...
