Tag: SIRT1

Triple negative
In a new paper published in Nature, scientists have found that raising NAD+ levels via supplementation with nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) activates SIRT1 to dampen metastasis in mouse TNBC models [1]. A double-edged sword NAD+ is a ubiquitous co-enzyme that facilitates numerous processes in our body, from energy production to DNA repair. Its levels decline with...

Scientists have shown that the NAD+ precursor nicotinamide riboside (NR) alleviates symptoms of leaky gut caused by ethanol consumption in mice by improving mitochondrial function [1]. What is Nicotinamide Riboside? Benefits and Side EffectsNicotinamide riboside (NR) is a B3 vitamin. Nicotinamide riboside gets converted into nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+), a coenzyme essential for life.Read MoreCategory:...
Improvement
A recent study published in Molecules has tested multiple thiazole-based derivatives that appear to activate the sirtuin SIRT1 more than resveratrol [1]. Sirtuins Resveratrol, commonly found in grape skins and red wine, generated some of the initial interest in sirtuin activators after initial studies showing many therapeutic benefits, such as cancer prevention [2]. Combined with...

A team of researchers publishing in Cell Death & Disease has found that the age-related decline of mitochondrial calcium uptake family member 3 (MICU3), a regulator of mitochondrial function, is associated with sarcopenia, the aging-associated loss of muscle. Why mitochondria control their calcium uptake The calcium ion, Ca2+, is vital in mitochondrial metabolism and interacts...

A review published in The Malaysian Journal of Medical Sciences has outlined what effects caloric restriction (CR) has on the development and differentiation of stem cells. Stem cells and their exhaustion The reviewers began by discussing stem cell exhaustion, a hallmark of aging and a common concern of aging research that we have covered extensively....
Diagram of NADH
What is NAD+? Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) is a key coenzyme found in all living cells. It is a dinucleotide, which means that it consists of two nucleotides joined through their phosphate groups. One nucleotide contains an adenine base, and the other contains nicotinamide. NAD+ is essential for life, one of the most versatile molecules...
