Our mitochondria, which originated from ancient bacteria, act like batteries, giving our cells the energy they need to live. In this informative episode of X10, Veera explains what happens to these organelles with aging and what we can do about it.
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 […]
Epigenetic alterations, which are one of the proposed reasons we age, are the changes to gene expression that our cells experience as we get older. These alterations harm the fundamental functions of our cells and can increase the […]
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 intestines helps to prevent […]
