On this week's Lifespan News, Brent Nally discusses a DNA methylation clock that determines our skin age, fruit flies and caloric restriction, the senescence resistance of aging mole rats, a mitochondrial protein that regulates health and longevity, the "love hormone" oxytocin as a therapy for Alzheimer's disease, and other rejuvenation topics.
Researchers have found that CLOCK, a protein that regulates the circadian cycle of our cells, also fights cellular senescence by promoting chromatin stability . Since its very beginning, life on Earth had to adapt to our planet’s […]
A new study published in Cell Stem Cell has shown how astrocytes, glial cells that perform multiple critical functions in the brain, can become neural stem cells (NSCs) in response to injury. Astrocytes’ normal functions The term ‘astrocyte’, […]
Researchers have taken a look at how caloric restriction seems to improve intestinal stem cell function in a new open-access study. Inflammaging is a precursor of age-related diseases The lining of the […]
