Scientists say they've identified for the first time a gene responsible for grey hair. The researchers say the gene called IRF4 is involved in regulating melanin, the pigment being hair color, as well as the color of the skin and eyes. One of the scientists Dr Kaustubh Adhikari from University College London says further research could make it possible to target proteins responsible for greying. “We think that eventually you could have a bill or you could have a lotion for your skull about something that you might use for this purpose. That's all speculative in the future. We have to do much more study before we can do that.”


科学家称,他们首次识别出了一种导致白发的基因。研究人员表示,名为IRF4的基因是一种参与调节黑色素、形成头发颜色的色素以及皮肤和眼睛的颜色的基因。科学家之一,来自英国伦敦大学学院的柯兹塔布•阿迪卡里博士称,通过进一步的研究,他们就能锁定使头发变白的蛋白质。“我们相信,未来你花点钱或买一瓶乳液,就可以解决头发花白的问题。这在未来都是有可能的。而在此之前,我们必须做更多的研究。”
