Weight loss and reversing metabolic syndrome may slow epigenetic aging | Steve Horvath

Posted on January 1st 2021 (7 months)

In this clip, Dr. Steve Horvath describes research suggesting that caloric restriction, especially when it is reversing obesity or metabolic syndrome, may slow epigenetic aging.

Does the epigenetic clock play a causal role in aging? | Steve Horvath

Posted on January 1st 2021 (7 months)

In this clip, Dr. Steve Horvath discusses whether epigenetic clocks play causal roles in aging.

Methyltransferases and TET, a demethylation enzyme, alter epigenetic age | Steve Horvath

Posted on December 31st 2020 (7 months)

Methylation and demethylation are critical processes in development and interfering with the enzymes that carry out these two opposing processes can play critical roles in epigenetic age.

Chronic inflammation accelerates epigenetic aging: transposon and HIV virus-associated aging

Posted on December 31st 2020 (7 months)

Some epigenetic clock evidence reinforces the idea that accelerated aging may be a consequence of chronic inflammation.

How changes in cellular identity and stem cell differentiation affect epigenetic age

Posted on December 31st 2020 (7 months)

As techniques are developed to differentiate and transdifferentiate cells from one cell type, such as a fibroblast, into another, such as a neuron, interesting patterns of effects on epigenetic age are revealed.

"Interrupted" reprogramming with Yamanaka factors reverse epigenetic age | Steve Horvath

Posted on December 31st 2020 (7 months)

A study using a mouse model of premature aging showed that short-term expression of four special factors which reverse epigenetic age ameliorated cellular and physiological hallmarks of aging and prolonged lifespan.

Can young stem cells reverse epigenetic age? | Steve Horvath

Posted on December 30th 2020 (7 months)

Scientists have observed that the epigenetic clock of transplanted cells and their descendant lineages synchronize with the donor rather than the recipient, a fascinating phenomenon that offers promise for the idea of rejuvenation in humans.
