Abstract

Although telomerase has potential for intervention in age-related diseases, the increased telomerase in about 90% of cancers, cautions against development of anti-aging therapeutics. The review here summarizes the multiple TERT (telomerase reverse transcriptase) telomerase subunit's uni...read more

Mitochondrial Metabolism

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

ROS Signalling in Cancer

Reactive oxygen species (ROS) have been found to be present in many cancers, having both pro-tumor promoting effects and anti-tumor signalling effects. The balance between the levels of ROS and tumorigenesis is still unclear. Discover the latest research on ROS signalling in cancer here.

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.

Inflammation during Aging

Slow, low-grade inflammation occurs during aging, however the mechanisms that are involved are still largely unclear. Pro-inflammatory biomarkers have been associated with cognitive decline and neurodegeneration. Here is the latest research on inflammation during aging.

Cancer Vaccines

Cancer vaccines are vaccines that either treat existing cancer or prevent development of a cancer.

Tumor Vaccines

Tumor vaccines offer the potential for preventing cancer in high-risk individuals, preventing disease relapse after diagnosis and initial therapy, and shifting the balance of the host-tumor interaction to mitigate the progression of advanced cancers. Discover the latest research on tumor vaccines here.

Telomeres & Aging

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

Cell Aging

This feed focuses on cellular aging with emphasis on the mitochondria, autophagy, and metabolic processes associated with aging and longevity. Here is the latest research on cell aging.

REDOX Signaling in Aging

The redox theory of aging is that aging is a decline in plasticity of genome-exposome interaction that occurs as a consequence of execution of differentiation and exposure memory systems. This includes compromised mitochondrial and bioenergetic flexibility, impaired food utilization and metabolic homeostasis, decreased barrier and defense capabilities and loss of reproductive fidelity and fecundity. This theory accounts for hallmarks of aging, including failure to maintain oxidative or xenobiotic defenses, mitochondrial integrity, proteostasis, barrier structures, DNA repair, telomeres, immune function, metabolic regulation and regenerative capacity.

ROS & Mitochondria

Reactive oxygen species can be generated during mitochondrial processes including oxidative phosphorylation and can contribute to DNA damage. Here is the latest research on ROS and mitochondria.

Telomere Elongation

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

Anti-inflammatory Treatments

A drug or substance that reduces inflammation (redness, swelling, and pain) in the body. Anti-inflammatory agents block certain substances in the body that cause inflammation and swelling. Discover the latest research on anti-inflammatory treatments here

Tumor Cell Mitochondria

Mitochondria, the powerhouse of cells, play a crucial role in tumorigenesis and directly influence cancer metabolism and alter response of the tumors to chemotherapeutic agents. Discover the latest research on tumor cell mitochondria here.

Chaperones & Protein Folding

Chaperones are proteins that play an essential role in protein folding, stability, assembly, and degradation. Their depletion or dysfunction has been implicated in protein folding disorders. Here is the latest research.

Antivirals

Antivirals are medications that are used specifically for treating viral infections. Discover the latest research on antivirals here.

Inflammation & Cancer

Inflammation has been implicated in initiation and progression of tumors, as well as elimination of cancerous cells. Here is the latest research on the role of inflammation in cancer.
