Abstract

A dissection of longevity in Caenorhabditis elegans reveals that animal life span is influenced by genes, environment, and stochastic factors. From molecules to physiology, a remarkable degree of evolutionary conservation is seen.

Cell Checkpoints & Regulators

Cell cycle checkpoints are a series of complex checkpoint mechanisms that detect DNA abnormalities and ensure that DNA replication and repair are complete before cell division. They are primarily regulated by cyclins, cyclin-dependent kinases, and the anaphase-promoting complex/cyclosome. Here is the latest research.

Anthelmintics

Anthelmintics or antihelminthics are a group of antiparasitic drugs that expel parasitic worms (helminths) and other internal parasites from the body by either stunning or killing them and without causing significant damage to the host. Discover the latest research on anthelmintics here.

Autophagy & Metabolism

Autophagy preserves the health of cells and tissues by replacing outdated and damaged cellular components with fresh ones. In starvation, it provides an internal source of nutrients for energy generation and, thus, survival. A powerful promoter of metabolic homeostasis at both the cellular and whole-animal level, autophagy prevents degenerative diseases. It does have a downside, however--cancer cells exploit it to survive in nutrient-poor tumors.

Mitochondrial Metabolism

Mitochondrial metabolism links energy production to other essential cellular processes such as signaling, cellular differentiation, and apoptosis. Discover the latest research here.

Apoptosis in Cancer

Apoptosis is an important mechanism in cancer. By evading apoptosis, tumors can continue to grow without regulation and metastasize systemically. Many therapies are evaluating the use of pro-apoptotic activation to eliminate cancer growth. Here is the latest research on apoptosis in cancer.

RNAi & Gene Silencing

RNA Interference (RNAi) pathway is involved in post-transcriptional gene silencing, transcriptional silencing and epigenetic silencing as well as its use as a tool for forward genetics and therapeutics. Discover the latest research here.

Neural Control of FGF21 & SIRT1

Fibroblast growth factor 21 (FGF21) is a liver‐derived hormone that selectively inhibits consumption of sugars and the primary product of their fermentation, ethanol, but not intake of fat, protein or complex carbohydrates. SIRT1 is a protein of the sirtuin family linked with deacetylation of proteins and contributes to reaction to stressor and longevity. Here is the latest research on neural control of FGF21 and SIRT1.

Anthelmintics (ASM)

Anthelmintics or antihelminthics are a group of antiparasitic drugs that expel parasitic worms (helminths) and other internal parasites from the body by either stunning or killing them and without causing significant damage to the host. Discover the latest research on anthelmintics here.

Open Access Genomics Journals

Discover the latest genomics research in this collection of the top open access genomics journals.

mtDNA Transcription

mtDNA transcription generates the necessary RNAs that encode several protein subunits involved in the oxidative phosphorylation process. Here is the latest research. 


Apoptosis

Apoptosis is a specific process that leads to programmed cell death through the activation of an evolutionary conserved intracellular pathway leading to pathognomic cellular changes distinct from cellular necrosis

Muscle Mitochondrial Networks

This feed focuses on the role of mitochondrial networks and energy metabolism in muscle cells. Discover the latest research here.

Autophagy & Model Organisms

Autophagy is a cellular process that allows degradation by the lysosome of cytoplasmic components such as proteins or organelles. Here is the latest research on autophagy & model organisms

Mitochondria and Cancer

Cellular respiration occurs in the mitochondria and an important hub for metabolic processes that is dysregulated in cancer. Discover the latest research here.

Nervous System in C. elegans

Here is the latest research on structures and gene circuits in the nervous system of model organism C. Elegans.

Mitochondrial Malfunction & Autophagy

Autophagy is thus a key determinant for mitochondrial health and proper cell function. In addition to autophagy's significance in mitochondrial integrity, several lines of evidence suggest that mitochondria can also substantially influence the autophagic process.

Neurodegeneration: Autophagy

Given that progression of neurodegenerative diseases can be driven by aggregation of misfolded proteins, autophagic activity is through to modulate the severity of neurodegenerative diseases. Here is the latest research on the influence of autophagy on neurodegeneration.

Sirtuins in Metabolic Regulation

Sirtuins, a family of highly conserved NAD+-dependent lysine-specific deacetylases has recently been suggested to have a critical impact in the direction and regulation of many metabolic pathways as well as energy sensing in mammals. Discover the latest research on sirtuins in metabolic regulation here.

Cancer Metabolism

In order for cancer cells to maintain rapid, uncontrolled cell proliferation, they must acquire a source of energy. Cancer cells acquire metabolic energy from their surrounding environment and utilize the host cell nutrients to do so. Here is the latest research on cancer metabolism.
