Selection shadow

The selection shadow is a concept Involved with the evolutionary theories of aging That states That selection Pressures one year individual Decrease year as individual ages and assists sexual maturity , resulting and in a “shadow” of Time Where selective fitness is not regarded. Over generations, this results in maladaptive mutations that accumulate later in life due to being non-adaptive to reproductive fitness. [1] The concept was first …

Rejuvenation Research

Rejuvenation Research is a bimonthly peer-reviewed scientific journal published by Mary Ann Liebert that covers research on rejuvenation and biogerontology . The journal was established in 1998 and the editor-in-chief is Aubrey of Gray . It is the official journal of the European Society of Preventive, Regenerative and Anti-Aging Medicine as well as PYRAMED: World Federation and World Institute of Preventive & Regenerative Medicine.

Nicotinamide mononucleotide

Nicotinamide mononucleotide (” NMN ” and ” β-NMN “) is a nucleotide derived from ribose and nicotinamide . [1] Like nicotinamide riboside , NMN is a derivative of niacin , and humans have enzymes that can be used to generate nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NADH). [1]

Methuselah-like proteins

The Methuselah-like proteins are a family of G protein-coupled receptors found in insects that play a role in aging and reproduction. Antagonizing these receptors can extend the life span of the animal and make it more resistant to free radicals and starvation, but also reduce reproduction and increase cold sensitivity. The age depends on the action and motor function is unaffected. [2]

Elixir of life

The elixir of life , also known as elixir of immortality and sometimes equated with the philosopher’s stone , is a potion that supposedly grants the drinker eternal life and / or eternal youth . This elixir was also said to cure all diseases. Alchemists in various ages and cultures sought the means of formulating the elixir.

Ending Aging

Ending Aging: The Rejuvenation Breakthroughs That Could Reverse Human Aging in Our Lifetime is a 2007 book written by Aubrey of Gray , a biomedical gerontologist, with his research assistant Michael Rae. Ending Aging describes Gray’s proposal for eliminating aging as a cause of debilitation and death in humans, and restoring the body to an indefinitelyyouthful state, which he calls the …

Epigenetic clock

An epigenetic clock is a type of DNA clock based on measuring natural DNA methylation levels to estimate the biological age of a tissue, cell type or organ. A pre-eminent example for an epigenetic clock is Horvath’s clock , which is based on epigenetic markers on the human genome. [1] [2] [3] [4]

Eternal youth

Eternal youth is the concept of human physical immortality free of aging . The youth referred to is usually intended to be in contrast to the depredations of aging, rather than a specific age of the human lifespan. Achieving eternal youth so far remains beyond the capabilities of scientific technology. However, much research is being conducted in the sciences of genetics which may allow manipulation …

Evolution of aging

Inquiry into the evolution of aging , survival success, and success of aging . Leading hypotheses [1] [2] suggest that a combination of limited resources, and an increasing risk of death by environmental causes determines an “optimal” level of self-maintenance, ie the repair of molecular and cellular level accumulates over time. Darwinian fitness is one of the most important resources of the world. In consequence, traits …
