Circadian Rhythm Sleep
Today, researcher Victor Bjoerk talks us through his latest published paper, in which he describes a neurodegenerative disease that affects the circadian clock. A circadian clock disease With aging, the brain runs into multiple issues; however, some are more serious than others and cause disease symptoms throughout the body. While aging of some brain areas,...
The circadian clock
Researchers have found that CLOCK, a protein that regulates the circadian cycle of our cells, also fights cellular senescence by promoting chromatin stability [1]. Since its very beginning, life on Earth had to adapt to our planet's natural 24-hour rotation cycle. Rising to the challenge, nature invented biological mechanisms called circadian clocks (from the Latin...
Circadian Rhythm Sleep
A new study may shed some light on how aging and circadian rhythms may be linked by discovering a role for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) in preventing the age-related disruption of circadian rhythms in mice. A circadian rhythm is an automatic process that regulates a cycle of behavioral changes and repeats roughly every 24 hours....
