Immortality…is it really possible? Avoiding death has always been a dream for us humans. We all want to live as long as possible and stay healthy and youthful while doing so, but dying still is a fact of life. Or isn’t it? Would there be a way to become immortal? There are countless theories about […]
Telomere science news related to telomeres and telomerase activation from Anti-Aging Labs. Scientific Research has revealed that shortening telomeres are a primary cause of aging. Telomeres are sequences of DNA, located at the ends of all chromosomes, which serve as cellular clocks of aging.
More and more tasks are taken over by robots, making the help of real humans almost redundant in some work fields. Much more convenient and more economic in most cases, but what about elderly care? Can you imagine yourself being taken care of by a robot when you’re older and in need? Or would you […]
An important way to relate life span and genetic features has been found in a new study on telomeres. A group of collaborators from the San Francisco campus of the University of California (UCSF) and Kaiser Permanente discovered how the ends of chromosomes are protected by parts of DNA. The length of these parts, known […]
What is the secret behind people who live to be a hundred years old or even older? Is it just a miracle or is there actually something you can do to live long and healthy? Learn the secrets from people living in the so called ‘Blue Zones’. Blue Zones are places on earth where people […]
Longer telomeres are the key to a long and healthy life. A telomere is a region of repetitive DNA at the end of a chromosome. Telomeres protect chromosomes against decline. The longer these telomeres are, the better they can do their job. Over time the telomere ends become shorter and shorter and therefore our body […]
Telomeres are a region of repeating nucleotides at the ends of chromosomes. They are present at the end of each arm, or chromatid, of the chromosome. The function of telomeres is to protect the ends of chromosomes during cellular division. In this process, enzymes read the makeup of the chromosome section by section to create […]
