Autophagy Governs Circadian Clock and Blood Glucose Levels

Autophagy Governs Circadian Clock and Blood Glucose Levels

Our circadian clocks are centered in the brain and control key physiological processes—sleep, body temperature, organ function, and metabolic activities such as maintaining blood glucose levels. Disrupting the clock can potentially lead to diabetes and other metabolic diseases. Read full story. … read more >

Drug Extends Lifespan and Healthspan in Mice

Drug Extends Lifespan and Healthspan in Mice

Throughout the animal kingdom, smaller animals usually live longer than larger ones of the same species. A key reason for this longevity boost is that smaller animals typically have reduced activity of key growth factors, including insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1). Signaling of … read more >
