Restoration of Autophagy as a Goal in the Treatment of Aging

The processes of autophagy act to remove damaged molecular machinery and structures in the cell. Autophagy becomes dysfunctional with age, however. This is likely downstream of underlying causes of aging that cause changes in gene expression that degrade the function of autophagic processes in one way or another. For example […]

The Benefits of Calorie Restriction are Based on Calorie Intake, not Food Quantity

Researchers here note that reduction in the calorie content in the diet is the important trigger for the benefits of calorie restriction, not reductions in the quantity of food ingested. The practice of calorie restriction, reducing calorie intake while still obtaining optimal micronutrient intake, has been shown to extend life […]

Scientists find new way to reverse immune suppression in tumors

Malignant tumors can enhance their ability to survive and spread by suppressing antitumor immune cells in their vicinity, but a study led by researchers at Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian has uncovered a new way to counter this immunosuppressive effect. In the study, published in Nature Cancer, the researchers identified […]

Modifying RNA: Crucial steps for adding chemical tag to transfer RNA revealed

The chemical steps in an important cellular modification process that adds a chemical tag to some RNAs have been revealed in a new study. Interfering with this process in humans can lead to neuronal diseases, diabetes, and cancers. A research team, led by chemists at Penn State, has imaged a […]

How a Plant Virus Could Protect and Save Your Lungs From Metastatic Cancer

Using a virus that grows in black-eyed pea plants, nanoengineers at the University of California San Diego developed a new treatment that could keep metastatic cancers at bay from the lungs. The treatment not only slowed tumor growth in the lungs of mice with either metastatic breast cancer or melanoma, […]

Withdrawal from Psychostimulants Restructures Functional Architecture of Brain

In mouse studies, single-cell whole brain imaging found methamphetamines, cocaine and nicotine all changed neural networks — a key to developing addiction treatments Addictive psychostimulants, from nicotine in cigarettes to illicit drugs like methamphetamine and cocaine, affect different regions of the brain. The same is believed true during withdrawal; finding […]
