Latest Telomerase Stories
Researchers studying more than 3,500 patients with heart disease say the length of DNA strands can help predict life expectancy.
Scientists from Carnegie Mellon University have recently discovered that our susceptibility to infections and our future health may be foretold by chromosome tips, known as telomeres. These chromosome tips are special DNA sequences that prevent DNA in chromosomes from unraveling.
The TA-65 Users Survey included the collection of qualitative data gathered through survey research.
This discovery holds the potential to reduce healthcare costs for many common inflammatory diseases such as cancer and diabetesSingapore, Nov 21, 2012 - (ACN Newswire)
Researchers from the University of East Anglia in the UK have found a link between biological age, longevity and an individual’s chromosomes in a bird known as the Seychelles Warbler.
A team of researchers at Kaiser Permanente and the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) has identified a significant relationship between mortality and the length of telomeres, the stretches of DNA that protect the ends of chromosomes.
Damaged and aged heart tissue of older heart failure patients was rejuvenated by stem cells modified by scientists.
UCLA biochemists have mapped the structure of a key protein–RNA complex that is required for the assembly of telomerase, an enzyme important in both cancer and aging.
