Emerging Role of C/EBPβ and Epigenetic DNA Methylation in Ageing

Trends in genetics - Volume 36, Issue 2, February 2020 Christof Niehrs (Institute of Molecular Biology), Cornelis F. Calkhoven (European Research Institute for the Biology of Ageing) Ageing is closely associated with and influenced by energy metabolism, and C/EBPβ is emerging as a key regulator of energy metabolism and longevity. DNA hypermethylation in GADD45α/ING1 [...]

Wat kunnen Ghanezen ons leren over gezond oud worden?

Universiteit van Nederland - De generatie die NU geboren wordt, heeft een grote kans hun 100-jarige verjaardag te kunnen vieren. Dan is het wel zo handig om die jaren zo vitaal mogelijk door te komen. David van Bodegom vertelt je in dit college wat we hiervoor kunnen leren van Ghanezen!

Pol Grootswagers – PhD Wageningen University & Research

Background Ageing research now seems to exist of two different disciplines: (1) slowing down / preventing ageing, and (2) improving quality of life of aged people. Sometimes, this leads to conflicting messages. For instance, to slow down ageing one can argue that lowering protein intake is an effective strategy, while this strategy would hamper [...]

A meta-analysis of genome-wide association studies identifies multiple longevity genes

Nature Communications - Augustus 2019 Human longevity is heritable, but genome-wide association (GWA) studies have had limited success. Here, we perform two meta-analyses of GWA studies of a rigorous longevity phenotype definition including 11,262/3484 cases surviving at or beyond the age corresponding to the 90th/99th survival percentile, respectively, and 25,483 controls whose age at [...]

Blood-based biomarkers help to estimate vulnerability of the elderly

LUMC | August 20 - 2019 | PRESSRELEASE Researchers on ageing led by Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC) have identified a combination of biomarkers in the blood which could help estimate the vulnerability of elderly people consistently across five European countries, equally in men and women of all ages above 60 years. The scientists [...]
