TA-65, a natural supplement, improves many aspects of aging in humans. A new survey conducted by researchers from Age Reverse reveals the self-reported benefits of these longevity pills in 246 participants. New York, NY (PRWEB) August 23, 2013 Studies have linked aging to the shortening of telomeres at the end of chromosomes. A longer telomere length ensures the accurate replication of DNA and maintenance of cellular health. It is believed that the degradation of telomeres causes a stage...

Salk researchers' findings on chromosome shortening suggest a potential target to arrest cancer cell growth A team of scientists at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies has identified why disruption of a vital pathway in cell cycle control leads to the proliferation of cancer cells. Their findings on telomeres, the stretches of DNA at the ends of chromosomes that protect our genetic code and make it possible for cells to divide, suggest a potential target for preventive measures...

Children with Duchenne muscular dystrophy often die as young adults from heart and breathing complications. However, scientists have been puzzled for decades by the fact that laboratory mice bearing the same genetic mutation responsible for the disease in humans display only mild symptoms and no cardiac involvement. Now, researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine have developed a mouse model that accurately mimics the course of the disease in humans. The study is the first...
