Epigenetic protection
A team of researchers has reported in Aging Cell that longer-lived Chinese women have less epigenetic noise in crucial areas of the genome. Order and disorder Why We Age: Epigenetic AlterationsEpigenetic alterations are age-related changes in gene expression that harm the fundamental functions of cells and increase the risk of cancer and other age-related diseases....
Centenarian Cake
A recent study's authors investigated whether biomarkers measured earlier in life can predict if someone will live to their 100th birthday [1]. 35-year-long centenarian study Previous research has found that people who become centenarians have fewer disabilities, comorbidities, and hospitalizations earlier in life. They are also characterized by better cognitive functions than people who will...
Elderly intestines
Research published today in Nature Aging has illustrated how the gut microbiomes of the longest-lived people are more likely to have bacterial populations associated with youth. A known difference This is far from the first study showing a connection between a healthy, youthful microbiome and enhanced longevity. In most people, the gut microbiome gradually transitions...
100th birthday cake
In a study published in International Journal of Molecular Sciences, a team of researchers known for their studies on long-lived individuals has discovered four new genetic loci that partially explain extreme longevity [1]. Genetics can be friend or foe Centenarians are people who have lived for at least a century. Not only do these genetically...
Genes computer
Publishing in GeroScience, a team of researchers that included Nir Barzilai and Matt Kaeberlein examined genes that may affect both mitochondria and lifespan [1]. From the mitochondria to the nucleus Over time, evolution has moved mitochondrial DNA from the individual mitochondria to the nucleus, where they are better protected. SENS Research Foundation, in conjunction with...
Centenarian
Scientists have discovered a possible mechanism that protects extremely long-lived people from aging [1]. Protected persons A few days ago, news came of the death of the oldest person in the world (and the oldest ever to have her age indisputably confirmed), 119-year-old Kane Tanaka from Japan. People who live past 100 or 110 years...
