RNA transcription
Research published yesterday in Nature has described one way in which RNA sequencing changes in the cell with age and how this may be linked to lifespan. Transcriptional elongation Transcriptional elongation is a fundamental biological process, as it affects the basic steps involved in the production of RNA, which is responsible for executing the instructions...
Skin wrinkle
Scientists have demonstrated that extracellular vesicles loaded with mRNA coding for collagen production can be easily produced and delivered into aging fibroblasts in vitro and in vivo, boosting collagen levels and eliminating signs of skin aging in mice [1]. Superior delivery method Finding a good way to deliver molecular cargo into cells is important. Some...
New Hallmarks
Publishing in Aging five months after their panel discussion in Copenhagen, many well-known researchers have explained their reasons for wishing to add new hallmarks of aging to the existing paradigm. A new addition to an old paradigm What is Aging? The Nine Reasons We AgeAging is a series of processes that include direct damage, accumulation...
Lorna Harries Interview
Lorna Harries is a Professor of Molecular Genetics at the University of Exeter Medical School. She is also the CSO and R&D lead at SENISCA Ltd. Like many other companies, and as evidenced by the name, SENISCA targets senescent cells, albeit using an unusual mRNA-based approach. After Lorna gave a fascinating talk at our Ending...
