Rat eating blueberry
A study published in Oxidative Medicine and Cellular Longevity has shown how blueberry extract moderately improves several age-related biomarkers in the livers of aging male rats. Rich in polyphenols In their introduction, the researchers describe polyphenols, a broad category of plant compounds that includes flavonoids. Specifically, blueberries are rich in anthocyanins, a group of polyphenols...
Lab mouse
New mouse data published in the latest issue of Aging Cell highlights the aging benefits of a novel NF-κB-based drug. NF-κB in aging and disease  NF-κB is a transcription factor found in nearly all animal cell types. It is activated in response to multiple physiological insults, such as stress, reactive oxygen species (ROS), and viral...
Storm
Research recently published in Aging shows how senescent cells overreact to inflammatory stimuli, causing them to excessively excrete compounds that promote inflammation. The researchers hypothesize that this is one cause of the cytokine storm, an immune overreaction that is more common in the elderly and is known to cause severe dysfunction and even death when...
Antique, complicated clock
Researchers have developed a new transcriptomic aging clock that incorporates information about biological pathways. With this approach, the clock predicts not only age but also how the state of various genetic pathways changes with age, providing insight into the transcriptional changes involved in aging. Time for a new kind of clock In recent years, the...
RNA strand
New research has identified a set of long noncoding RNAs involved in inflammaging and the senescence-associated secretory phenotype (SASP) [1]. These RNAs are conserved across a range of species, including humans, and may prove a valuable avenue for controlling senescence. Age-related RNAs RNA can broadly be divided into protein-coding RNAs and noncoding RNAs, which have...
Research mouse
A new study in Molecular Cell has shown that the benefits of hypoxia may be derived from a suppression of the inflammatory SASP. Why we Age: Cellular SenescenceAs your body ages, more of your cells become senescent. Senescent cells do not divide or support the tissues of which they are part; instead, they emit potentially...
