Berkeley researchers find evidence for a "molecular fountain of youth" | Science Facts and Fiction | Scoop.it

 

A group of medical researchers at the University of California at Berkeley has found a protein that is able to rejuvenate aged blood stem cells...

 

The ravages of aging appear to be related to oxidative stress combined with telomere exhaustion, along with many other known and unknown factors. The subject of the new Berkeley study is a class of proteins called sirtuins that are known to play a central role in regulating aging and longevity in many non-human models (such as mice).
