- Telomere Shortening
The user is able to reduce the length of telomeres, either their own or others. Telomeres are a region of repetitive nucleotide sequences at each end of a chromatid, protecting the DNA fragments; they grow shorter as cell division occurs, an indication of the person getting older. By shortening the telomeres, one can reduce the lifespan of themselves or others.
- May only be able to manipulate either their own telomeres or others', not both at the same time.
- If used for age-related benefits, it may lead to premature aging issues later.
