Small molecules discovered to halt cellular aging
Scientists from Boston Children's Hospital identify potential drugs for treating telomere diseases, and maybe even aging.
Activating this enzyme could repair age-associated DNA damage in neurons and improve cognition
Scientists from MIT discovered that an enzyme, HDAC1, repairs age-associated DNA damage in genes involved in memory and other cognitive tasks. The level of the enzyme decreases in both Alzheimer’s patients and normally aging individuals.
Scientists discover two regulators that could halt unhealthy aging
We are living longer, but how do we stay healthy until the end of life? Chinese scientists report two new targets to help us age healthily.
NMN supplementation may improve conditions associated with reduced DNA integrity
Scientists from multiple institutions, including Baylor College of Medicine, MD Anderson Cancer Center, and the University of Pennsylvania perform experiments on mice, indicating nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) supplementation ameliorates cellular conditions associated with reduced DNA integrity and counteracts liver disease.
