Agent slows aging in mice

...100 days. “If NDGA turns out to extend maximal lifespan by 20 or 30 percent, people would accept that as an important finding,” Miller says. No one excited by these early results in mice is advised to bulk up on creosote bush leaves as a way to defy old age. If NDGA pushes the aging envelope in the fin...

Studies find general mechanism of cellular aging

...s, which proliferate continuously during the adult lifespan and produce massive amounts of new blood cells on an hourly basis. Their results suggest that p16INK4a is the molecular basis for an old-age "signal" previously observed in blood stem cells. The Harvard study also showed that blood stem cells from ol...

Longer-lived rodents have lower levels of thyroid hormone

However, because T3, levels did not differ significantly among all the groups, further research in this area using larger sample sizes (numbers of r...

Temperament linked to onset of cancer and early death in female rats

Buildup of damaged DNA in cells drives aging

Somehow, JNK and the insulin receptor together seem to work in tandem to affect life span. "We're learning that an organism's life span may not be limited by design," said Bohmann. "It was ...

Large dinosaurs were extremely hot in their day, UF study finds

... 300 percent change in rates of population growth, lifespan and population density." For many years, scientists had assumed that dinosaurs were cold-blooded, or ectotherms, with a slow metabolism that required the sun's heat to regulate temperature. But in the late 1960s, the notion emerged that dinosaurs, ...
