NEW YORK, June 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- When expressed (turned on), the gene (hTERT) located on Chromosome number 5p15.33 activates the enzyme telomerase. Human cells can keep living and dividing indefinitely when telomerase is continually present; i.e. the cells become immortal. Telomerase Activation Sciences, Inc. (T.A. Sciences®) announces TA-65® can extend human cell life indefinitely. TA-65® is a single molecule telomerase activator that turns on the Immortality Gene under controlled laboratory conditions.
Is TA-65® the "Fountain of Youth"?
Telomere Biology has become the most relevant topic in 21st century anti-aging research. Recently, doctors across the country have been administrating a blood test that measures the length of your telomeres. Telomeres indicate biological age as compared to chronological age.
In the journal Nature, a study released on November 28th, 2010, a team of researchers at Harvard Medical School reported the first aging process reversal in a mammal. By reactivating telomerase, they rejuvenated worn out organs in mice which were the equivalent in biological age to 80 year old humans. The result was an age reversal in certain organ systems of these old mice to display the characteristics of organs belonging to young adult mice. This and other recent studies following the 2009 Nobel Prize in Medicine (awarded for the discovery of telomerase) confirm the emergence of telomeres and telomerase as the foundation of a major scientific platform.
There have been over 8,000 scientific articles relating to Telomere Biology, but only one peer reviewed study published where humans were given a telomerase activator. In September 2010, a Rejuvenation Re
