Alzheimer's MRIs
The risk of Alzheimer’s disease goes up with age, and the number of people living with Alzheimer's is growing. While it is known to be associated with the loss of proteostasis, it has also been found to be associated with epigenetic alterations. An advanced online preprint in bioRxiv was published by Dr. Morgan E. Levine...
Rainbow Clocks
In a preprint published in bioRxiv, Morgan Levine and colleagues have identified and grouped 5,717 epigenetic CpG sites into 12 different modules, conducting an in-depth examination into how epigenetic clocks work. Epigenetic Clocks - What are they?An epigenetic clock is a biochemical test that uses DNA methylation levels and accumulation of methyl groups on DNA...
Work Stress
A study published in Aging that studied the Northern Finland Birth Cohort of 1966 has found some interesting and counterintuitive results regarding work stress and accelerated epigenetic aging. Work stress is widely associated with premature death It is common folk wisdom that too much stress leads to a shorter lifespan, and this belief has been...
Food DNA
A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition examined the relationship between diet quality and epigenetic aging clocks [1]. This study used data from the Framingham Heart Study Offspring Cohort. This specific study noted the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) scores, which are derived from a food frequency questionnaire (FFQ), of 1,995...
Mouse clock
A new preprint on bioRxiv shows how researchers have developed transcriptomic, cell type specific aging clocks from the regenerative zones of mouse brains [1]. Measuring age at the level of a single cell Aging is multi-faceted and difficult to quantify. While chronological age is straightforward, it doesn’t necessarily capture the underlying biology, as individuals naturally...
Hearing Loss
A study published in Frontiers in Aging Neuroscience examined the relationship between epigenetic age acceleration and hearing [1]. Since 1958, a team of researchers from the National Institute on Aging Intramural Research program has been conducting the Baltimore Longitudinal Study of Aging (BLSA). The BLSA study continuously enrolls volunteers free of chronic conditions from a...
