Tag: Altered Intercellular Communication

The Golgi apparatus
September 15, 2020
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
July 02, 2020
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.

Irina and Michael Conboy
February 05, 2020
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...
Senescent Cell Atlas
January 28, 2020
Recently, a team of researchers, including Professor Judy Campisi, has published an atlas charting the inflammatory senescence-associated secretory phenotype (SASP) [1]. The nature of the SASP As we grow older, increasing numbers of our cells enter a state known as senescence. Senescent cells no longer divide to support and help maintain the tissues that they...
Hand blood vessels
December 18, 2019
A new blood test could reveal your age, according to a new study published in Nature Medicine by researchers at the Wyss-Coray Lab at the Stanford School of Medicine [1]. Your real age is written in your blood The study saw researchers examining blood samples and the levels of various proteins within them in order...
