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...

Homozygous loss of DIAPH1 is a novel cause of microcephaly in humans

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...

Blocking pain receptors extends lifespan, boosts metabolism in mice

(University of California - Berkeley) Chronic pain is known to shorten lifespan, and pain tends to increase with age. But is there a relationship between pain and longevity? UC Berkeley and Salk resea...

Blocking pain receptors found to extend lifespan in mammals

Blocking a pain receptor in mice not only extends their lifespan, it also gives them a more youthful metabolism, including an improved insulin response that allows them to deal better with high blood...

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...

Extreme obesity cuts lifespan more than smoking-study

NEW YORK (Reuters) - That obesity can cut life short by causing strokes and other illnesses comes as no surprise, but a study reported on Tuesday quantifies the toll: The most extreme cases cut a pers...

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...

Divergence in Age Patterns of Mortality Change Drives International Divergence in Lifespan Inequality.

In the past six decades, lifespan inequality has varied greatly within and among countries even while life expectancy has continued to increase. How and why does mortality change generate this diversi...

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,...
