Flies lacking Ets21c died much faster when exposed to oxidative stress. Findings reveal a new molecular switch that could be responsible for a longer life and stress resilience.
A new study challenges previous research into the role of the FOXO3 gene in super-aging. Researchers found the gene did, to a degree, play a role in longevity, but did not affect living to ages 96+ in men or 100+ in women.
Researchers report that, at the molecular levels, aging may have originated at the beginning of the evolution of life. They suggest when it comes to genes, aging may not always be a negative trait, and may help an organism to survive.
Researchers report transplanting altered neural stem cells into the brains of mice genetically engineered to exhibit symptoms of ALS, delayed the progression of the disease and extended lifespan.
A new study reports Americans are living longer, but tend to be in poorer health.
Two new studies from researchers at USC provide fresh insight into Alzheimer's risks. Researchers say attending college can stave off dementia and help retain memories in old age. Additionally, researchers report reducing diabetes and hypertension after 50 could increase longevity in people with Alzheimer's disease.
People who are financially more comfortable during mid-life tend to live longer, researchers say.
Researchers have identified a genetic mutation in an extended Amish family that allow them to live 10 percent longer and have 10 percent longer telomeres than other Amish kindred members who do not have the mutation. People with this mutation also have a lower diabetes risk and lower vascular aging, researchers note.
A new study reveals minocycline, a popular antibiotic, can help extend lifespan and improve protein balance in aging worms. Researchers say the protective mechanism of the medication could be exploited to help prevent neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's or Parkinson's in humans.
