Welcome to part two of a two-part series exploring NAD+ biology; you can find part one here. There are already a myriad of excellent reviews on NAD+ biology in general [1-3], so, in this article, we will be mainly focusing on the NAD+ precursor nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN). NMN and synthesis of NAD+ NMN can be...

A recent study published in Cell Metabolism has shown that metformin, a drug that has been previously shown to be effective against some aspects of aging, ameliorates inflammaging by promoting autophagy, the cellular recycling of damaged components. Mitochondrial dysfunction, autophagy, and TH17 Mitochondrial dysfunction is one of the hallmarks of aging, the root causes that...

Researchers from Johns Hopkins Medicine have successfully used stem cells to repair diabetic damage to retinal blood vessels. The researchers believe that their findings will advance regenerative approaches that seek to reverse conditions such as diabetic retinopathy and other eye diseases that lead to blindness. Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) have been around for well...

A team of researchers, including renowned geneticist Professor George Church, has published a new paper demonstrating the mitigation of multiple age-related diseases using a multi-target gene therapy. Treating multiple age-related diseases at once George Church is a very prominent figure in genetics and aging research, and he created quite a stir last year when he...
