Scientists Use IGF-I To Grow New Membranes Around Neurons

...under study, IGF-I appears to be most effective at inducing myelination and preventing neural cell death, according to Cheng. Named for its structural similarity to insulin and its ability to simulate insulin's glucose-lowering properties, IGF-I is produced in the liver and is present in blood serum. During...

Presence Of Protein Extends Life; Potential Aging Mechanism Found

...ed fly strains to short doses of nonlethal warmth, inducing expression ofa protein dubbed hsp70. Flies bred to contain extra copies of hsp70 genesresponded to the warmth by producing a lot of hsp70, which substantiallyincreased their life span over a two-week period after heat treatment. Only a brief, low l...
