Today’s Cool Fact of the Day
A way to make old cells behave like young cells has been discovered!
University of Exeter researchers found a new way to rejuvenate old cells in the laboratory, making them not only look younger, but start to behave more like young cells, has now been discovered.
Within hours of treatment older cells divided, and had longer telomeres, the ‘caps’ on the chromosomes which shorten as we age.
The researchers applied compounds called reversatrol analogues, based on a substance naturally found in red wine, dark chocolate, red grapes and blueberries, to cells in culture.
Within hours, the cells looked younger and started to rejuvenate, behaving like young cells and dividing. The researchers said: “This demonstrates that when you treat old cells with molecules that restore the levels of the splicing factors, the cells regain some features of youth.”
