Mitochondria is a powerhouse of the cell. It plays a vital role in producing energy from food. Meanwhile, it can get stressed and damaged. Under stressful conditions, mitochondria activate their multiple defense mechanisms: biochemical “domino” pathways that help them repair their defects and recover or improve their health. Stressed mitochondria are largely involved in aging, […]

New component found targeting circadian clock and aging. The circadian clock is the biological mastermind controlling orderly execution of bodily processes throughout the day. In recent years, an emerging topic of broad interest is clock-modulatory agents, including small molecules both of synthetic and natural origins, and their potential applications in disease models. Nobiletin is a […]

Researchers have discovered the barrier to β-cell regeneration that could pave the way for improved treatments for diabetes and diseases that involve organ and tissue damage. This process is regulated by methylation changes of two key developmental genes Ngn3 and Sox 11. They have been known before, the recent study demonstrated how exactly regulation of […]
