What is epigenetics and why all the excitement?
We all know what the famous double helix looks like. In that twisted genetic vine, Watson and Crick felt they had discovered the secret of life. One DNA strand contains the coding information for about 20,000 genes, which in turn direct the process of creating the proteins that are the building blocks of all organisms.
DNA in humans contains about six billion base pairs divided between 46 chromosomes, 23 each from the mother and father, plus a small DNA molecule in the mitochondrion. Stretched out, the DNA chain would be two meters long, but it is intricately folded so it can fit within cells.
But there’s more to cell function than DNA. The new and exciting field of epigenetics is bursting on to the biology and genetics fields and is having a big impact at the leading edge of new product development in healthcare and skin care.
According to Wikipedia, epigenetics is a specialized field of study in “biology, and specifically genetics. Epigenetics is the study of changes in gene expression or cellular phenotype, caused by mechanisms other than changes in the underlying DNA sequence – hence the name epi- (Greek: επί- over, above, outer) – genetics. It refers to functionally relevant modifications to the genome that do not involve a change in the nucleotide sequence.”
However, genetic mechanisms alone cannot explain how some cellular traits are propagated. Rapid advances in the field of epigenetics are now revealing a molecular basis for how information other than DNA sequence can influence gene function. These advances also add to the understanding of transcriptional regulation, nuclear organization, development and diseases.
Cosmetic science is increasingly driven not by chemistry but by biology, and the science of skin care keeps getting more and more sophisticated. Epigenetics certainly is at the forefront of that trend.
So what does this mean in plain English? Epigenetics is the study of how our genes are turned on or off without changing our DNA. The epigenome consists of “molecular tags” attached to the outside of the DNA ladder. Epigenetic tags turn genes up or down, on or off, and control when and how well DNA damage is repaired.
Simply put, epigenetics determines how quickly or slowly we age, that’s what all the excitement is about. As this field evolves, our understanding of the aging process increases and we learn how to apply that scientific knowledge to practical applications.
