Scientists have identified pathways that extend lifespan by 500 percent. The increase in lifespan would be the equivalent of a human living for 400 or 500 years, according to one of the scientists.
Working on C. elegans – a nematode worm commonly used in aging research due to its weeks-long lifespan and genetic similarities with humans – an international team of researchers from the U.S. and China have identified synergistic cellular pathways for longevity which can extend the host’s lifespan by as many as 500%.
In a new study published in the online journal Cell Reports, a team of international researchers has discovered methods to increase the lifespan of the lowly C. elegans worm by five times, long after its normal three or four week lifecycle. If these findings were successfully applied to human beings, that person would experience the equivalent of blowing out 400 birthday ca…
A new study shows that altering two cellular pathways in a species of roundworm can extend lifespan by a staggering 500 percent. The discovery could help scientists develop anti-aging therapies for humans
In Hancock County, nearly 80 percent of residents drink from their own private well, meaning they’re responsible to check the water quality. The threat of toxins was a key topic of conversation Monday night.
Scientists at the MDI Biological Laboratory, in collaboration with scientists from the Buck Institute for Research on Aging in Novato, Calif., and Nanjing University in China, have identified synergistic cellular pathways for longevity that amplify lifespan fivefold in C. elegans, a nematode worm used as a model in aging research.
A few simple genetic changes is all it takes to prolong a worm’s life span by 500 percent, a new study has found. That’s much longer than we ever expected, and scientists working the problem think results such as these might help us to understand our own ageing process a little better.
Researchers at the MDI Biological Laboratory, the Buck Institute for Research on Aging, and Nanjing University in China found “synergistic cellular pathways for longevity” in C. elegans, a nematode worm used as a model in aging research.
A few simple genetic changes is all it takes to prolong a worm’s life span by 500 percent, a new study has found.
A new discovery shows the path to better anti-ageing treatment in future. Researchers at the MDI Biological Laboratory, with collaboration with a group of scientists from the Buck Institute for Research on Ageing in Novato, California and Nanjing University in China have noticed some synergistic cellular pathways that can implement longevity in living beings.
