Dietary restriction and extended lifespan

A new evolutionary theory in BioEssays claims that consuming a diet very low in nutrients can extend lifespan in laboratory animals, a finding which could hold clues to promoting healthier ageing in h...

Microcephaly with or without chorioretinopathy, lymphoedema, or mental retardation (MCLMR): review of phenotype associated with KIF11 mutations

Mitochondrial clock used to predict worm lifespan

A technique that accurately predicts the lifespan of nematode worms has been developed by scientists monitoring mitochondrial activity...

The presence of male roundworms may shorten females' lifespan

Researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine have discovered that males of the laboratory roundworm secrete signaling molecules that significantly shorten the lifespan of the opposite sex...

Combining mutants results in 5-fold lifespan extension in C. elegans

(Buck Institute for Age Research) What are the limits to longevity? Scientists at the Buck Institute combined mutations in two pathways well-known for lifespan extension and report a synergistic five-...

Male roundworms shorten the lifespan of females, say Stanford researchers

Researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine have discovered that males of the laboratory roundworm secrete signaling molecules that significantly shorten the lifespan of the opposite sex...

Eat more, die young: Why eating a diet very low in nutrients can extend lifespan

A new evolutionary theory in BioEssays claims that consuming a diet very low in nutrients can extend lifespan in laboratory animals, a finding which could hold clues to promoting healthier ageing in h...

Stanford study suggests why, in some species, mere presence of males shortens females' lifespan

(Stanford University Medical Center) Researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine have discovered that males of the laboratory roundworm secrete signaling molecules that significantly sho...

Patterns of intraspecific variability in the response to caloric restriction.

Caloric restriction (CR) is cited as the most robust means of increasing lifespan across a range of taxa, yet there is a high degree of variability in the response to CR, both within and between speci...

Thin genu of the corpus callosum points to mutation in FOXG1 in a child with acquired microcephaly, trigonocephaly, and intellectual developmental disorder: A case report and review of literature.

The FOXG1 syndrome is emerging as a relative new entity in paediatric neurology. We report a boy with acquired microcephaly, mental retardation and a thin genu of the corpus callosum. The combination...

The dietary proportion of essential amino acids and Sir2 influence lifespan in the honeybee.

Dietary essential amino acids have an important influence on the lifespan and fitness of animals. The expression of the NAD(+)-dependent histone deacetylase, Sir2, can be influenced by diet, but its r...

A Novel Deletion Mutation in ASPM Gene in an Iranian Family with Autosomal Recessive Primary Microcephaly.

Autosomal recessive primary microcephaly (MCPH) is a neurodevelopmental and genetically heterogeneous disorder with decreased head circumference due to the abnormality in fetal brain growth. To date,...

Ecology and mode-of-life explain lifespan variation in birds and mammals.

Maximum lifespan in birds and mammals varies strongly with body mass such that large species tend to live longer than smaller species. However, many species live far longer than expected given their b...
