January 26, 2021
Scientists have successfully reversed the decline in cellular stress response in drosophila flies [1]. Our cells rely on epigenetic regulation to do their various jobs: while a muscle cell has the same genome as a liver cell, the difference in gene expression is what sets them apart. With age, these complex epigenetic patterns can go...

At Ending Age-Related Diseases 2020, Dr. Alexey Moskalev gave a presentation on Drosophila genetics. While it is not a mammal and certainly not a human being, Drosophila is a common subject for aging research, as it is a short-lived insect that shares many of the same aging-related genetic pathways as larger animals. Here, Dr. Moskalev...
