The Drosophila fruit fly
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...
A long-eared, long-tailed mouse
Activation of a genetic pathway controlled by the NRF2 gene reduces age-related hearing loss, according to a new study [1]. In the long run, drugs or treatments that target this pathway could help us keep our hearing sharp as we get older. It's getting harder and harder to hear Age-related hearing loss is extremely common,...
