Summary Activation of Sir2 orthologs is proposed to increase lifespan downstream of dietary restriction. Here, we describe an examination of the effect of 32 different lifespan‐extending mutations and four methods of DR on replicative lifespan (RLS) in the short‐lived sir2Δ yeast strain. In...
Summary We tested the hypothesis that older men who perform habitual aerobic exercise do not demonstrate age‐associated vascular endothelial oxidative stress compared with their sedentary peers. Older exercising men (n = 13, 62 ± 2 years) had higher (P < 0.05) physical activity (79 ± 7 vs. 30...
Summary Hutchinson–Gilford progeria syndrome (HGPS or progeria) is a very rare genetic disorder with clinical features suggestive of premature aging. Here, we show that induced expression of the most common HGPS mutation (LMNA c.1824C>T, p.G608G) results in a decreased epidermal population of...
Summary Aging is associated with increased adiposity in white adipose tissues and impaired thermogenesis in brown adipose tissues; both contribute to increased incidences of obesity and type 2 diabetes. Ghrelin is the only known circulating orexigenic hormone that promotes adiposity. In this...
Summary To determine whether mitochondrial dysfunction is causally related to muscle atrophy with aging, we examined respiratory capacity, H2O2 emission, and function of the mitochondrial permeability transition pore (mPTP) in permeabilized myofibers prepared from four rat muscles that span a...
Summary In Caenorhabditis elegans, the insulin/IGF pathway participates in the decision to initiate dauer development. Dauer is a diapause stage that is triggered by environmental stresses, such as a lack of nutrients. Insulin/IGF receptor mutants arrest constitutively in dauer, an effect that...
Summary Recent studies have found associations of leukocyte telomere length (TL) with diseases of aging and with longevity. However, it is unknown whether birth leukocyte TL or its age‐dependent attrition – the two factors that determine leukocyte TL dynamics – explains these associations...
Summary Reduced reproduction increases storage and extends lifespan in several animal species. The disposable soma hypothesis suggests this life extension occurs by shifting allocation of ingested nutrients from reproduction to the soma. A great deal of circumstantial evidence supports this...
Summary Pre‐lamin A and progerin have been implicated in normal aging, and the pathogenesis of age‐related degenerative diseases is termed ‘laminopathies’. Here, we show that mature lamin A has an essential role in cellular fitness and that oxidative damage to lamin A is involved in...
