Naked Mole Rat Side
A study published in Aging has shown that the skin of the naked mole rat retains nearly all of its physical and biochemical properties as these animals chronologically age, providing new insight into how and why these animals live so long. Wrinkly, but not like humans wrinkle With a wrinkly, largely hairless body, the naked...
In a study published in Nature, scientists have found an extremely strong correlation between somatic mutation rate and lifespan across several species, highlighting the importance of mutation burden for aging [1]. The question of why lifespan varies so vastly among species, including closely related ones, has always fascinated geroscientists. Studying exceptionally long-lived species might reveal...

A research paper published in Nature by Dr. Vadim Gladyshev and his team has investigated the epigenetic aging of the naked mole rat, an animal whose mortality rate does not appear to increase with age. Why we Age: Epigenetic AlterationsEpigenetic alterations are age-related changes in gene expression that harm the fundamental functions of cells and...
Naked mole rat
The well-known resistance of naked mole rats to aging and aging-related effects is due at least in part to an unusual ability to clear away senescent cells. This suggests that senolytic drugs, which aim to do the same in humans, may prove a fruitful path to longevity. Naked mole rats live much longer than other...
