New research published in Aging has analyzed the telomeres of patients hospitalized due to COVID-19. 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: TTAGGG. Telomeres do not code for proteins, but they protect chromosomes...

A group of scientists has created a neural network that identifies senescent cells by their morphology and can be used for senolytic drug screening [1]. Image recognition is a showcase triumph of artificial intelligence. While this problem was considered extremely hard to crack in previous decades, algorithms have now exceeded human abilities in multiple cases....

In this video, the Sheekey Science Show explores fisetin, a flavonoid that is found in strawberries and shown to have senolytic effects. This compound, a polyphenol like resveratrol and quercetin, has been shown to somewhat activate SIRT1, which enhances longevity, while eliminating harmful senescent cells in mice, as proven by the reduction of cells that...
