Scientists also discovered individual organ and body parts reacted differently to the process in the engineered mice.

If researchers at the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) have their way, that wish could become a reality. These scientists have successfully extended the lives of mice by changing a single gene.
