Study reveals protein that keeps skin young
Scientists may have discovered a way to maintain youthful skin by using a protein which encourages competition between cells.
It may not be a fountain for youth to hear COL17A1 called that way, but a new study shows it is able to keep skin healthy and intact.
The protein encourages cell competition which is a vital process for maintaining tissue fitness. This \”drives out\”, weaker cells, while encouraging the replication of stronger cells.
