Mitochondrial Mutations Contribute to Autoimmune Disease?

Mitochondria , the cell's power plants, contain their own DNA . This is a legacy of their origin as symbiotic bacteria, but it makes them vulnerable to damage. Mitochondrial DNA is not as well protected and maintained in comparison to nuclear DNA ... [Published Fight Aging! - 4 hours ago]

Recent Research into Centenarians and their Biochemistry

Some family lineages produce far more long-lived individuals than others with the same background: similar region, culture, wealth, and era. From that we can conclude that some natural genetic variations provide a greater chance of living longer in good ... [Published Fight Aging! - 16 hours ago]

Aging and Brain Rejuvenation as Systemic Events

It is always good to see more researchers talking openly about the prospects for treating aging, reversing dysfunction, and extending life. This review is open access, but the full paper is only available in PDF format at the moment: Until recently, ... [Published Fight Aging! - Oct 22 2014]

Physical Exercise is Protective of Brain Function, but Some of the Effects Decline in Old Age

There is plenty of evidence to link regular exercise with specific aspects of better health , such as measures of functionality in the brain and cardiovascular system . Here, however, researchers produce data to suggest that some of the protective ... [Published Fight Aging! - Oct 22 2014]

The Near Horizon for Visions of Slowing Aging

The mainstream of the aging research community, or at least that fraction of it that is interested at all in increasing healthy longevity by intervening in the aging process, is almost entirely focused on the use of drugs to alter metabolism to slightly ... [Published Fight Aging! - Oct 22 2014]

NT3 and Regeneration from Noise-Induced Deafness

Deafness due to noise exposure is apparently due in part to destruction of specific forms of synapses linking hair cells and nerve cells . Researchers are here manipulating cells in search of ways to boost the regrowth of these synapses: NT3 ... [Published Fight Aging! - Oct 21 2014]

Using Olfactory Bulb Cells to Treat Spinal Injury

Here is recent news of an approach to spinal injury that has produced benefits in one patient. It is worth tempering optimism until larger trials are attempted, however, as nerve regeneration has proven to be highly variable between individuals. The ... [Published Fight Aging! - Oct 21 2014]

Towards Intestinal Tissue Engineering

Researchers are making progress towards a methodology for growing intestinal tissues from a patient's cells. As is usually the case in this sort of work, the first results are not intended for use in therapies, but will instead provide raw materials ... [Published Fight Aging! - Oct 20 2014]

A Glance at the Present State of Limb Prosthetics

The body is a life support system, carriage, and collection of useful accessories for the brain. Insofar as you as an individual are concerned, you are your brain. The rest of the body is only indispensable because we don't have other ways to provide ... [Published Fight Aging! - Oct 18 2014]

A New Discovery Relating to Heat Shock Factors and Longevity

The heat shock factor HSF-1 is involved in the processes of cellular maintenance relating to ensuring correct protein folding and clearing out misfolded proteins. Protein shape is vital to the operation of cellular machinery , and the presence of ... [Published Fight Aging! - Oct 17 2014]

To suffer a stroke is one the uglier and more abrupt system failures of aging. A vital blood vessel in the brain is either blocked by the biological debris of clots and fatty deposits on blood vessel walls , or more rarely the blood vessel suffers ... [Published Fight Aging! - Oct 17 2014]

Quotes

...called a ribbon synapse , allows extra-rapid communication of signals that travel back and forth across tiny gaps between the two types of cells. "It has become apparent that hearing loss due to damaged ribbon synapses is a very common and challenging problem, whether it's due to noise or normal aging. We began this work 15 years ago to answer very basic questions about the inner ear, and now we have been able to restore hearing after partial deafening with noise, a common problem for people. It's very exciting."
...anslational research the findings could eventually lead to bioengineering personalized human intestinal tissue to treat gastrointestinal diseases . "This provides a new way to study the many diseases and conditions that can cause intestinal failure, from genetic disorders appearing at birth to conditions that strike later in life, such as cancer and Crohn's disease . These studies also advance the longer-term goal of growing tissues that can replace damaged human intestine."
The novel osseointegrated (bone-anchored) implant system gives patients new opportunities in their daily life and professional activities. "We have used osseointegration to create a long-term stable fusion between man and machine, where we have integrated them at different levels. The artificial arm is directly attached to the skeleton, thus providing mechanical stability. Then the human's biological controlcontrol system, that is nerves and muscles, is also interfaced to the machine's control system via neuromuscular electrodes. This creates an intimate union between the body and the machine; between biology and mechatronics."
...Similarly, heat shock disrupts the cytoskeletal highway, preventing the chaperone "doctors" from reaching the patients, the misfolded proteins. "We think HSF-1 not only makes more chaperones, more doctors, but also insures that the roadways stay intact to keep everything functional and make sure the chaperones can get to the sick and wounded warriors." The researchers found specifically that HSF-1 up-regulates another gene, pat-10 , that produces a protein that stabilizes actin, the building blocks...
