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...
Protein
Changing a single amino acid in a single protein boosts the fidelity of protein synthesis, and that is enough to increase lifespan in a variety of organisms, according to new research [1]. Proofreading proteins The loss of proteostasis is one of the hallmarks of aging. However, much of the research on the topic has focused...
mRNA
The current pandemic has brought mRNA vaccines into the spotlight and have likely sped up the widespread adoption and usage of this technology. Now, a company has its sights set on treating cancer with mRNA technology, and the initial animal data is positive. mRNA steps up to treat cancer mRNA vaccines look like they are...
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...
RNA
A massive RNA sequencing effort has identified changes in microRNA associated with Parkinson's. Some of the changes correlated with disease progression, holding out hope that they could be useful as prognostic or diagnostic biomarkers to help guide research and evaluate potential therapies. Pinning down Parkinson's Although Parkinson's disease is the second most common neurodegenerative disease...
