Calorie restriction and cellular aging process

Recent research published in Molecular & Cellular Proteomics offers one glimpse into how cutting calories impacts aging inside a cell. The researchers found that when ribosomes – the cell’s protein makers – slow down, the aging process slows too. The decreased speed lowers production but gives ribosomes extra time to repair themselves. Repairing individual parts …

Researcher discover role of protein CPEB4 in development of fatty liver

The scientists at IRB Barcelona discovered the role of a protein CPEB4 in the pathogenesis of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (fatty liver). This condition generally leads to chronic inflammation, which can trigger fibrosis, cirrhosis and ultimately liver cancer. This study paves the way to examine therapeutic strategies to fight and prevent this disease. The results of the …
