Scientists have pinpointed a protein complex in the human body that guards cells against DNA damage. The research was performed at the University of New South Wales (UNSW). The finding could prove helpful for astronauts as well as humanity in general. ...

CellAge is one of the new initiatives arisen in recent years from our community of longevity science advocates and researchers. The principals are focused on the biology of senescent cells, and are attempting to apply the new technology of synthetic gene promoters in order to produce a better class of assay for cellular senescence in living tissue. ...

Studies carried out by Dutch scientists have resulted in a major breakthrough in the anti-ageing process which could ultimately lead to future treatment for cancer patients. Researchers at Erasmus university in Rotterdam have found a way to turn back the effects of ageing following experiments on elderly mice which led to a startling regrowth of the rodents’ fur. ...

The first strand of grey at your temples may have more to say about the state of your health than you know. Australian-American molecular biologist Elizabeth Blackburn, who received a Nobel Prize (for Physiology or Medicine, in 2009) for the discovery of telomerase and telomeres’ role in the aging process, breaks down this phenomenon in a book co-authored with psychologist Elissa Epel. ...

An unexpected function of the oxidized form of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) could underlie some effects of aging and propensity to age-related diseases. Li et al. found that the protein DBC1 (deleted in breast cancer 1) contains a domain that specifically binds NAD+. Binding of NAD+ inhibited the interaction of DBC1 with PARP1 [poly(adenosine diphosphate–ribose) polymerase 1], an enzyme important in DNA repair. ...

A drug that reverses the equivalent of three decades of ageing in mice will be tested on humans this summer. The naturally occurring compound, which encourages cells to repair their DNA, is being monitored by Nasa, which believes that the drug could be a way to get astronauts to Mars without them succumbing to cancer. ...

They’ve discovered that a natural compound found in fruit and vegetables including avocado and broccoli can help repair DNA that’s been damaged by ageing and radiation exposure. Their discovery has attracted interest from US space agency NASA and sparked hope that it might one day help improve the long-term health of children with cancer. ...

A drug that reverses ageing, promotes DNA repair and could even help astronauts travel to Mars by reducing the impact of cosmic radiation, may be on the market in three years, scientists claim. Researchers working with two biotech companies hope to begin testing the treatment on clinical trial patients in the next six months. ...
