Abstract

The polyp (scyphistoma) of the jellyfish Cassiopea sp. can be maintained in culture for a long time, as polyps repeatedly reproduce asexually via formation of vegetative buds or propagules. The medusa, which is the sexually reproducing stage, typically has a relatively short life span. ...read more

Organ Regeneration

Regeneration in humans is the regrowth of tissues or organs in response to injury or damage. Discover the latest research on organ neuroregeneration here.

Telomeres & Aging

Telomere shortening is associated with cellular senescence and accelerated aging. Discover the latest research on Telomeres & Aging here.

Telomere Elongation

Telomere elongation by telomerase counteracts the telomere shortening due to the incomplete replication of chromosome ends by dna polymerase.

Epigenetics & Stem Cell Aging (Keystone)

Aging is associated with a decline in tissue function which is due in part to loss of stem cell function over time. As epigenetic modifiers appear to have an effect on longevity, understanding epigenetic regulation of stem cell functioning over the lifespan will allow for improvements in rejuvenating strategies. Find the latest research relating to Anne Brunet's presentation on "Epigenetic Regulation of Stem Cell Aging" in this feed.

Neuroregeneration

Neuroregeneration is the growth or repair of neural cells and tissues following damage or injury. Discover the latest research on neuroregeneration here.

Stem Cell Aging

Aging tissues experience a progressive decline in homeostatic and regenerative capacities, which has been attributed to degenerative changes in tissue-specific stem cells, stem cell niches and systemic cues that regulate stem cell activity. Understanding the molecular pathways involved in this age-dependent deterioration of stem cell function will be critical for developing new therapies for diseases of aging that target the specific causes of age-related functional decline.
