Turning back the clock
Vadim Gladyshev and his team have published a review in Aging Cell about the current techniques and innovations in rejuvenation biotechnology, providing an overview of how these researchers see the state of the field. The reversibility of aging The reviewers begin by discussing the connection between the perceived irreversibility of aging and the lack of...
LSN Altos Labs
On this episode of Lifespan News, Ryan O'Shea talks about how one of the market's biggest players is putting forward money to fight against aging. Script We first told you about whispers of the Jeff Bezos-backed longevity company Altos Labs in September of 2021. Now, the cat is officially out of the bag, and this...
Neurons
Scientists publishing in Nature Aging have shown that telomerase reverse transcriptase slows neurodegeneration but not due to its telomere-building activity [1]. Chromosomes' bodyguards Why We Age: Telomere AttritionTelomeres are DNA regions located at the ends of a chromosome. Their normal length is 8-10 thousand base pairs, yet they consist of repetitions of a single sequence:...
Hosted by Dr. Oliver Medvedik, Journal Club returns on Tuesday 25th January at 12:00 Eastern and will be broadcast live on the Lifespan.io Facebook page. The topic for this month is the paper 'CAR T cells produced in vivo to treat cardiac injury', which looks at how researchers created CAR T cells to target scar...
ALEC is a lifespan comparison tool for researchers.
Dr. Leon Peshkin talks us through a new open access research tool he has helped to develop and which is free for researchers to use now. If a drug increases lifespan in mice by 15%, should I take it? The idea of intervention testing in a model organism is simple: while keeping all conditions equal,...
Old man eye
Researchers publishing in Experimental Eye Research have discovered that the peptide aB-crystallin can reduce the cellular senescence that affects the progression of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). What is αB-crystallin? αB-crystallin is a well-known heat shock protein, a family of proteins that is used in temperature regulation. This protein has been previously demonstrated by this research...
