Latest Telomere Stories
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.
While previous research has suggested that individuals with wandering minds could be exhibiting signs of unhappiness, a new study shows that the inability to focus on a task at hand could be linked to aging.
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.
The combination of shortened telomeres, a biological marker of aging associated with cancer development, and elevated depression significantly impacted bladder cancer mortality.
Damaged and aged heart tissue of older heart failure patients was rejuvenated by stem cells modified by scientists.
Next week's Journal of Biological Chemistry "Paper of the Week" by Wai Mun Huang and colleagues at the University of Utah Health Sciences Center and the University of Minnesota reveals new insights into the molecular properties of the rod-shaped soil bacterium Agrobacterium tumefaciens, the pathogen responsible for crown gall disease, a tumor-forming infection in plants, such as tomatoes, walnuts, grapes and beets.
Global leader Cenegenics® Medical Institute grows in the Southeast to accommodate expanded heart, telomere and nutraceutical programs that set higher benchmarks for preventive health, visiting
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.
A recent study by researchers at found that people whose fathers and grandfathers waited until they were older to have children tended to have a higher amount of resources for the body to repair cells and tissues.
