DNA Blood Cells
Researchers publishing in Cell Stem Cell have identified a protein that helps hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) both in ex vivo cultures and in aging tissues. The problem with culturing cells Why we Age: Loss of ProteostasisThe loss of proteostasis is the failure of the protein building machinery of the cell and the accumulation of misfolded...
UCSD Blood Flow Monitor
Researchers from the University of California San Diego have developed a new non-invasive way to measure blood flow using an ultrasound patch [1]. Realtime blood flow monitoring just got easier This new flexible polymer patch sticks to the skin and can monitor the flow of blood in vessels up to 14 centimeters deep into the...
X10 Young Blood
On this episode of X10, we talk about a plasma transfusion experiment that studied what happens when young plasma is injected into older animals. Script Is the blood of the young really an elixir of youth? Can it keep us healthy as we age, and, if so, what hidden components give it this great power?...
Blood cells in an artery
A mouse study published in Aging Cell has outlined the similarities between artificially restricted cerebral blood flow and the reduced blood flow associated with aging. Aiming to understand vascular dementia Prior research has shown that reduced cerebral blood flow, known as hypoperfusion, results in vascular dementia and brain atrophy through multiple mechanisms, including neuroinflammation and...
Blood cells
Researchers have reversed the age-related decline in the function of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) in older mice using nicotinamide riboside. This success can make our blood more youthful and increase the effectiveness of stem cell transplantation [1]. There will be blood HSCs are the progenitors of all our blood cells. HSCs reside in the bone...
Albumin
Before we begin, it should be noted that this study was published on biorxiv, a pre-print website that hosts papers prior to peer review. Therefore the data should not be regarded as conclusive or accurate until it has been subject to the peer review process and accepted for journal publication. Please keep that in mind...
