targeting aging
Researchers publishing in the Nature journal npj Regenerative Medicine have zeroed in on a major reason behind stem cell exhaustion and determined that inhibiting it has significantly rejuvenative effects. A protein that suppresses stem cells In both humans and mice, the protein Cdc42 increases with aging. This is because its natural inhibitor, Cdc42GAP, decreases in...
A novel treatment that inhibits the activity of the Cdc42 protein has been found to extend the lifespan of aged mice, most likely through epigenetic changes and regulation of inflammatory cytokines. Cdc42 is linked with lifespan Cdc42 is a RhoGTPase, a kind of signaling protein involved in a variety of processes in eukaryotic cells. It...
