A New Supramolecular CRISPR-Cas9 carrier makes Genome Editing more Efficient

Genome editing (also known as gene editing) refers to a set of technologies that allow scientists to alter an organism’s DNA. These technologies enable the…
Scientist discovers Aging Signs in Mitochondria

Scientist discovers Aging Signs in Mitochondria

Age-related mitochondrial alterations are linked to a reduction in mitochondrial function. Because of mutations and oxidative damage caused by reactive oxygen species, mitochondrial DNA volume,…
A Single Hormone Controls the Body’s Reaction to a Low-protein Diet

A Single Hormone Controls the Body’s Reaction to a Low-protein Diet

A single hormone appears to be responsible for the lifetime extension caused by a low-protein diet. In old mice, low-protein diets have favorable metabolic benefits,…
Scientists Discover how the Brain Connects Memories

Scientists Discover how the Brain Connects Memories

As we age, our brains lose the ability to connect similar memories. Researchers genetically restored this brain function in middle-aged rats and discovered an FDA-approved…
In Obese Mice, Increasing Liver mRNAs Reduces Appetite and Body Weight

In Obese Mice, Increasing Liver mRNAs Reduces Appetite and Body Weight

Obesity is becoming increasingly common around the world, but treatment options are limited. Despite initial success, calorie restriction (CR) weight loss frequently fails due to…
Microbes Influence how the Gut uses its Genes

Microbes Influence how the Gut uses its Genes

According to a new Duke study in mice, the microorganisms that assist break down food actually tell the gut how to do its job better.…
Microbiota in Gut may influence Cancer Treatment Response

Microbiota in Gut may influence Cancer Treatment Response

The gut microbiota has been linked to cancer and has been found to influence anticancer medication efficacy. Resistance to chemo medicines or immune checkpoint inhibitors…
