The human thymus
Publishing in Nature Communications' Cell Death Discovery, a team of Chinese researchers has discovered a reason for thymic involution, the age-related decline of the thymus. Adaptive Immune SystemThe adaptive immune system is a complex mechanism protects us from threats, including viruses and cancer. T cells and B cells are the backbone of this system.Read More...
Gut brain inflammation
A recent review published in Cureus shows why fecal microbial transplantation (FMT) might be able to help sufferers of Alzheimer's disease, showing how tightly the gut and brain are intertwined. Why would this ever work? The gut and brain are closely linked through biochemistry, and last month, we published an article about how the gut...
Heart Inflammation
A team of Chinese researchers has outlined the cellular link between age-related inflammation (inflammaging) and the physical aging of heart muscle cells (cardiomyocytes). NLRP3 and why it matters We have previously discussed the NLRP3 inflammasome, which releases inflammatory cytokines upon exposure to irritants [1], including reactive oxygen species (ROS) [2]. The researchers hypothesized that ROS,...
Three Baby Mice
A study published in Cell Reports has shown that early-life exposure to antibiotics that destroy the gut flora can harm the lifelong development of mice, including lifespan. Three groups with different microbiota To begin the study, the researchers fed 20 baby mice, as well as their mothers, amoxicillin and neomycin, and they established a control...
Thorough CRISPR
In a study published in Genome Biology, researchers explain how they are working to make CRISPR less prone to large, accidental deletions of genetic material [1]. A previously unknown large problem While this seems counterintuitive, previous technology only allowed for the ready identification of deletions below 100 base pairs. New technology has allowed for larger...
Stressful stimuli
Researchers publishing in Aging have found that stresses, both biological and in daily life, harm one of our fundamental abilities to correctly process what's going on around us. What is sensory gating? Sensory gating is the brain's ability to filter out irrelevant stimuli after the first time it experiences them. It reflects our ability to...
