A group of Japanese scientists has found that advanced glycation end products (AGEs) tend to accumulate in osteoblasts with age, inducing apoptosis via endoplasmic reticulum stress. This mechanism likely contributes to the development of osteoporosis [1]. AGEs and age Advanced glycation end-products, fittingly abbreviated as AGEs, are proteins or lipids that have had sugars attached...

A new study suggests that autophagy, the recycling, and disposal system that cells use to remove unwanted garbage, can extend the healthy lifespan of mammals. The study, led by Drs. Salwa Sebti and Alvaro Fernández from the Center for Autophagy Research, has discovered that mice with higher levels of autophagy live longer and healthier than...
