Latest Telomere Stories
OAKLAND, Calif., July 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- One of the nation's largest and most diverse genomics projects has reached its first major milestone in just 15 months.
Telomeres, the body's own cellular clocks, may be a crucial factor underlying the development of emphysema, according to research from Johns Hopkins University.
Scientists at Johns Hopkins have provided more clues to one of the least understood phenomena in some cancers: why the "ends caps" of cellular DNA, called telomeres, lengthen instead of shorten.
Two Baylor College of Medicine doctors have received support for their research from Alex's Lemonade Stand, a nonprofit group dedicated to fighting pediatric cancer.
BLUE BELL, Pa., June 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Inovio Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
Researchers have found new clues about aging, by identifying a new pathway that sets the clock for programmed aging in normal cells.
National Institutes of Health researchers have identified a new pathway that sets the clock for programmed aging in normal cells.
Cutting edge research and experts are agreeing that slowing aging is a real possibility. But how to do that is not always clear with all the variety of information out there.
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.
Research by influential doctors and biologists such as Aubrey de Grey, PhD are increasingly showing that longer, more vital lives are possible in effect, turning the average middle age to around 100. One of the key factors that is found in all the research is telomere length.
