Weight loss surgery may 'reverse aging' on cellular level Nov 17, 10:33 am
Washington, Nov 17 (ANI): A new study has suggested that bariatric or weight loss surgery may not only help obese people keep the weight off, but also it may actually reverse the effects of aging.
Poorer kids likelier to catch colds Nov 2, 12:05 pm
Washington, Nov. 2 (ANI): Researchers have found a link between lower socioeconomic status during childhood and adolescence and the length of telomeres - protective cap-like protein complexes at the end of chromosomes, which ultimately affects the susceptibility to colds in middle-aged adults.
Artificial human chromosome set to revolutionise medicine Jul 11, 3:41 pm

What causes cancer revealed Jun 29, 3:06 pm
Washington, June 29 (ANI): Researchers from the Japanese Foundation for Cancer Research in Tokyo have discovered that forced elongation of telomeres (extensions on the end of chromosomes) promotes the differentiation of cancer cells, probably reducing malignancy, which is strongly associated with a loss of cell differentiation.
New gene linked to obesity discovered Jun 21, 3:53 pm
Washington, June 21 (ANI): Researchers have discovered that RAP1, a gene that protects telomeres- the ends of chromosomes, has a key role in obesity.

Having fewer children linked to longer lifespan Mar 28, 11:31 am
London, March 28 (ANI): Studies of birds have revealed that those that have offspring later in life and have fewer broods live longer.
`Fountain of youth` enzyme mapped out for first time Mar 28, 10:04 am
London, March 28 (ANI): Taking a step forward in the fight against cancer, researchers have for the first time mapped telomerase, an enzyme which has a kind of rejuvenating effect on normal cell ageing.
Length of DNA strands can predict life expectancy of heart patients Mar 10, 11:59 am
Washington, Mar. 10 (ANI): Researchers have been able to predict survival rates among patients with heart disease based on the length of strands of DNA found on the ends of chromosomes known as telomeres.
Caloric restriction can increase longevity and improve health Jan 24, 2:13 pm
Washington, January 24 (ANI): A team of experts has found that mice with reduced caloric intake accumulate longer telomeres-the ends of chromosomes- have lower incidence of cancer and are in better health.
Now, blood test to tell how old you really are Dec 28, 12:04 pm
London, December 28 (ANI): Researchers have come up with a controversial lifespan test that claims to tell people how fast they are ageing.

London, November 1 (ANI): Scientists behind the 1000 Genomes Project have developed a map of normal human genetic variation - everything from tiny changes in the genetic code to major alterations in our chromosomes.
Washington, October 28 (ANI): A large-scale analysis of Y chromosomes from more than 20,000 men has found that two spontaneously recurring deletions along a complex region of the Y chromosome are responsible for approximately 8 percent of cases of failed sperm production.
Milk proteins `have cancer-protective properties` Oct 4, 2:45 pm
Washington, October 4 (ANI): Researchers have found that a milk protein with known health effects significantly reduces the growth rate of colon cancer cells over time by prolonging the period of the cell cycle before chromosomes are replicated.
Chromosomes can determine longevity in mammals Sep 28, 12:55 pm
Washington, September 28 (ANI): Researchers from the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO) have shown that longevity in mammals is defined at a molecular level by the length of telomeres.
Washington, August 11 (ANI): A developmental geneticist has used a common fruit fly (Drosophila melanogaster) to probe the question as to why the propagation of every animal on the planet is the result of sexual activity between males and females of a given species.
Stressful jobs making us age prematurely Jul 30, 12:14 pm
London, July 30 (ANI): Finnish researchers have confirmed that a stressful job could make us old and sick before time.
Anxiety may lead to premature aging Jul 12, 3:40 pm
Washington, July 12(ANI): A common form of anxiety, known as phobic anxiety, was found to be associated with shorter telomeres in middle-aged and older women, suggesting a possible risk factor for accelerated aging.
Kids of older fathers may live longer Jun 12, 10:37 am
Washington, June 12 (ANI): Researchers say children whose father waited until they were older before reproducing, might experience life-extending benefits.
Washington, May 9 (ANI): Researchers have shed light on how genes on sex-linked chromosomes are passed down generations and linked to fertility, using the specific example of the W chromosome in female chickens.
Depression may speed up aging process Feb 22, 12:28 pm
Washington, Feb 22 (ANI): Stress can lead to several damaging effects on the human body.
Washington, Feb 10 (ANI): Testing a developing foetus' DNA through chromosomal microarray (CMA) provides more information about potential disorders than the standard method of prenatal testing, which is to visually examine the chromosomes (karyotyping), according to a new study.
London, Jan 30 (ANI): Under stressful conditions, yeast cells become unstable, and readily rearrange their chromosomes to facilitate rapid adaptation, according to a new study.
'Pulverized' chromosomes may be behind cancer Jan 22, 3:57 pm
London, Jan 22 (ANI): Scientists have apparently found evidence which suggests that micronuclei - present in cancer cells - could potentially disrupt the chromosomes within them, and thus help in triggering disease-causing gene mutations.
