Biology of aging

...We now know that insulin is a direct player in the aging process," Tatar says. "So the research fits some key puzzle pieces together. And it should change the way we think about aging." Tatar's research is part of a growing body of evidence linking low insulin levels to increased longevity. In recent years...

Jones is involved in research into the utility of a compound called azadeoxycytidine--a more specific version of azacitidine that only affects DNA and ...

Cancer drug resistance research leads to possible therapeutic target for Alzheimer's disease

...rs of protein and fat. A new model of human brain aging (Neurobiology of Aging, January 2003) postulates that mid-life breakdown of myelin could be a possible key to the later development of Alzheimer's disease. "Imaging studies and examination of brain tissue have shown that the deterioration of myelin t...

Cell division can be halted in multiple ways, with implications for cancer

...for cancerous ones cannot reproduce forever. When aging cells stop dividing, they become "senescent." Scientists believe one factor that causes senescence is the length of a cell's telomeres, or protective caps on the end of chromosomes. Every time chromosomes reproduce, telomeres get shorter. As telomere...
