Anti-Aging Protein Extends Life Span in Mice, and Maybe Humans

Anti-Aging Protein Extends Life Span in Mice, and Maybe Humans | Aging and Exercise by D Pastor | Scoop.it
Things are looking up for aging mice and, if this research pays off, for aging humans, too.

 

Researchers have found that a long-suspected anti-aging protein called sirtuin can make male mice live about 16 percent longer than average, the first such advance for mammals in a field that has thus far only offered the blessings of extended life span to yeast, nematodes and fruit flies...

Scientists Develop Initial Anti-Aging Formula: Progeria Mice live 30% longer

Scientists Develop Initial Anti-Aging Formula: Progeria Mice live 30% longer | Aging and Exercise by D Pastor | Scoop.it

A new study indicates that scientists have found a new way of delaying the aging process in mice, and they hope to replicate the finding in people. The research was built upon an earlier study that shed light on progeria, a rare genetic disease that prematurely ages one in four million babies.

 

A mutation was found in the Lamin A protein, which lines the nucleus in human cells, disrupting the repair process and accelerating aging. They also found that normal and healthy Lamin A binds to and activates the gene SIRT1, which has been long associated with longevity. If scientists can develop drugs that mimic Lamin A or increase the binding between Lamin A and SIRT1, this may lead to anti-aging drugs.

 

The team also examined if the binding efficiency was boosted with resveratrol, a compound found in the skin of red grapes. Mice fed with concentrated resveratrol fared significantly better than healthy mice that weren’t given it and the onset of aging was delayed and the life expectancy was extended. Mice with progeria lived 30% longer when fed with resveratrol compared with progerial mice not given the compound.
