Epigenetic Control of Haematopoietic Stem Cell Aging and Its Clinical Implications.

03 Oct 2017

Aging, chronic inflammation, and environmental insults play an important role in a number of disease processes through alterations of the epigenome. In this review we explore how age-related changes in the epigenetic landscape can affect heterogeneity within the haematopoietic stem cell (HSC) compartment and the deriving clinical implications.
