University of California - San Francisco A double-edged sword, gene variants may promote overall health while increasing risk of gliomas New genomic research led by UC San Francisco (UCSF) scientists reveals that two common gene variants that lead to longer telomeres, the caps on chromosome ends thought by many scientists to confer health by protecting cells from aging, also significantly increase the risk of developing the deadly brain cancers known as gliomas. The genetic...

2014-04-28 10:35:58

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online They say that only two things in life are certain: death and taxes. For the former, a new study of the blood of one of the world’s oldest women has offered clues to not only why death occurs, but may also unlock some of the secrets of longevity. Hendrikie van Andel-Schipper, who was born in 1890 and lived to the ripe old age of 115, was at the time of her death in 2005 the oldest person in the world. But as astonishing as that...

Genes amplify the stress of harsh environments for some children, and magnify the advantage of supportive environments for other children, according to a study that's one of the first to document how genes interacting with social environments affect biomarkers of stress. "Our findings suggest that an individual's genetic architecture moderates the magnitude of the response to external stimuli—but it is the environment that determines the direction" says Colter Mitchell, lead author of...

The long and the short of telomeres In captivity, grey parrots are often kept in social isolation, which can have detrimental effects on their health and wellbeing. So far there have not been any studies on the effects of long term social isolation from conspecifics on cellular aging. Telomeres shorten with each cell division, and once a critical length is reached, cells are unable to divide further (a stage known as 'replicative senescence'). Although cellular senescence is a useful...
