Researchers from the University of California, San Francisco have discovered that a small molecule partially restores the cognitive abilities of mice suffering from age-related memory decline [1]. BrainThe brain is perhaps the most important organ in the body. While many organs are critical to our survival, the brain contains the self. It is responsible for...

At Ending Age-Related Diseases 2020, Dr. Alexander Fedintsev of the Institute of Biology at Komi Science Center gave a talk about collagen glycation. Cross-links caused by advanced glycation end-products such as glucosepane stiffen the extracellular matrix, leading to systemic problems. Dr. Fedintsev provides evidence showing that the stiffened ECM leads to stem cell depletion, cellular...

A new study conducted by researchers from Germany and the UK has shown that accumulation of medin, an amyloid of the protein MFG-E8, leads to cerebrovascular (brain blood vessel) disease in wild-type mice [1]. Loss of ProteostasisThe loss of proteostasis is the failure of the protein building machinery of the cell and the accumulation of...

A group of researchers has proposed three robust transplantation techniques for fighting microglia-related conditions, such as Alzheimer's, and potentially boosting our cognitive abilities [1]. The sentinels of the brain Microglial cells form the backbone of our brain’s immune system. They perform a wide variety of functions, including tracing pathogens, inducing inflammatory reactions, and facilitating the...
