Found: ancient enzyme that affects DNA repair
The enzyme PrimPol allows cells to make copies of their DNA even when damaged, preventing breaks in the chromosomes.

Aging erodes genetic control, but it’s flexible
Some genes need to be silenced [turned off] for health and long life. Researchers used “reporter” genes to see whether changes associated with aging would reduce fruit flies’ ability to turn off those genes.
