Another Demonstration of Cells Taking Up Whole Mitochondria

One of the several possible approaches to address the important issue of mitochondrial damage in aging , wherein cells are overtaken by malfunctioning mitochondria and cause harm to surrounding tissues as a result, is some combination of destroying ... [Published Fight Aging! - 13 hours ago]

Alzheimer's Memory Loss Turned Back with Calorie Restriction and Exercise

There is primary aging and there is secondary aging . The former is a side-effect of the operation of metabolism, an accumulation of damage about which little is done at present. The latter is the consequence of an unhealthy lifestyle, which at the ... [Published Fight Aging! - 14 hours ago]

More Investigation of the Choroid Plexus in Brain Aging

A fair amount of research over the years has pointed to dysfunction of the choroid plexus as a contributing factor to degeneration in the brain. This structure generates and filters cerebrospinal fluid , and is thus its decline is a candidate reason ... [Published Fight Aging! - Sep 30 2014]

A Better Understanding of the Mechanisms of ALT, Alternative Lengthening of Telomeres

Telomeres cap the ends of chromosomes and shorten with each cell division , one part of the collection of mechanisms that limits the lifespan of somatic cells that make up the bulk of our tissues. Fresh cells with long telomeres are regularly ... [Published Fight Aging! - Sep 29 2014]

Coming Around to the Idea of Radical Life Extension

One of the reasons that most people reject the idea of living longer through new medical technologies is that they believe, incorrectly, that it will result in being aged, frail, and in pain for longer . This is not the goal, and probably not even possible, ... [Published Fight Aging! - Sep 29 2014]

A Novel Type of Cellular Garbage in Aging

A variety of forms of cellular garbage accumulate with aging, and in some cases it is up for debate as to whether the garbage is a primary cause of aging or secondary effect of other damage that degrades cell maintenance. The origins of degenerative ... [Published Fight Aging! - Sep 29 2014]

How Does Tau Protein Accumulation Harm Brain Cells in Age-Related Neurodegenerative Conditions?

One of the discoveries of past years in Alzheimer's disease research is that the β-amyloid accumulating between cells is less harmful to neurons than other associated proteins involved in the creation of that amyloid. Here is a paper that suggests ... [Published Fight Aging! - Sep 26 2014]

Altered Myeloid Microglia Improve Alzheimer's Symptoms

Growing amounts of amyloid-β (Aβ) between cells forms one part of the pathology of Alzheimer's disease . This is a dynamic process, as much a matter of reduced clearance rates as increased production or simple accumulation: there are systems in the ... [Published Fight Aging! - Sep 26 2014]

Quotes

When a person dies, doctors often have mere hours - or in the case of kidneys, just over a day - to find a recipient before the organ degrades. "This precludes any chance of banking organs and makes every transplant an emergency procedure, often in the dead of night... when patients aren't ready" says Stephen van Sickle of Arigos Biomedical in Mountain View, California
...interface, known as the choroid plexus, is found in each of the brain's four ventricles, and it separates the blood from the cerebrospinal fluid. "The choroid plexus acts as a 'remote control' for the immune system to affect brain activity. Biochemical 'danger' signals released from the brain are sensed through this interface; in turn, blood-borne immune cells assist by communicating with the choroid plexus. This cross-talk is important for preserving cognitive abilities and promoting the generation of new brain cells."
...These proteins stretch out the DNA, allowing it to search for complementary sequences of telomere DNA. "This process of repair triggers the movement and clustering of telomeres like fish being reeled toward an angler. The broken telomeres use a telomere on a different chromosome - the homologous telomere -- as a template for repair." In fact, in cancer cells that use ALT to maintain their telomeres, the team could visualize this process by imaging these clusters of telomeres coming...
...Because of the specific pieces present and their sheer number, they are likely to interfere with normal proteins and cellular functions. "With the number of different fragments, we think they're going to cause trouble in the cell."
