Tag: Altered Intercellular Communication

Stem cell development
A new study published in the FASEB Journal shows how mesenchymal stem cells derived from adipose tissue (ADSCs) reverse some effects of aging in nearby cells. It's not the cells themselves, it's what they secrete The original and ongoing main purpose of stem cell therapies is to directly combat stem cell exhaustion: to replenish the...
Elderly muscle
Muscular degradation with age isn’t the result of a decline in the intrinsic regenerative ability of muscles, according to new research [1].  Instead, sarcopenia is likely due to changes in the muscle microenvironment that reduce repair and regeneration. Declining muscles Age-related muscle loss can begin as early as a person’s fourth decade, and sarcopenia can...
The Golgi apparatus
A group of researchers has found that extracellular vesicles carrying a specific type of microRNA can attenuate age-related inflammation and increase immune response following flu vaccination in mice [1]. Extracellular vesicles (EVs) are an important part of intercellular communication. These tiny nanoscale bubbles are secreted by cells into the intercellular space and can carry various...
X10 on Biological Network Disruption
In this informative episode of X10, Nicola discusses how our cells communicate with each other and how this communication network is disrupted with aging, causing systemic inflammation and other issues.
Journal Club
As we previously announced, this session of Journal Club features Dr. Oliver Medvedik presenting a new study in which researchers claim that they have halved the epigenetic age of old rats using blood factors present in young rats.

Irina and Michael Conboy
We were at the recent Longevity Therapeutics Conference in San Francisco, and we had the opportunity to interview Irina and Michael Conboy from UC Berkeley about their pioneering work on blood factors and aging. Irina is a member of our Scientific Advisory Board, and the Conboys' work is well-known to rejuvenation advocates, as they are...
