AGEs linked to DNA damage in diabetes by Dr. Chris P. Doctor of Philosophy Posted Mon 21 Jul 2008 10:12am A new andas-yet-unpublished studyproposes a causative link betweenadvanced glycation endproducts(AGEs) and DNA damage, potentially explaining the link between diabetes (where frequent blood glucose spikes cause accelerated formation of AGEs) and male infertility. The authors of the study focus on sperm, but the result suggests that AGEs may p ... Read on »

News Note: Study provides link between tumor suppression and DNA damage by Cancer.gov Posted Sat 06 Nov 2010 9:00pm News Note: Study provides link between tumor suppression and DNA damage NCI scientists have linked p53, a protein that can suppress tumor formation and influence cellular aging, with TRF2, a protein that forms a complex that protects the ends of chromosomes from undergoing erosion. The ends of chromosomes are known as telomeres, ... Read on »
Stevia Could Help Protect Against DNA Damage, According to New Study by Connie Bennett Healthy Living Professional Posted Thu 02 Oct 2008 3:13pm Note from Connie: You may already have heard about stevia, the herb that's some 150 to 300 times sweeter than sugar, has zero calories and doesn't raise blood sugar levels.

A bridge between CR, DNA damage, and transcriptional dysregulation in aging? by Dr. Chris P. Doctor of Philosophy Posted Wed 10 Dec 2008 9:08pm In past years, I was fond of comparing biogerontology to the tale of the blind men and the elephant: everyone was approaching the problem from different directions, unable to see the big picture — and reaching conclusions that had more to do with the direction of approach (i.e., initial biases) than the fundamental importance of any given obs ...

DNA damage and repair by Martin Eastwood Posted Thu 03 Dec 2009 5:46am This is a fascinating review by Jackson and Bartekon the DNA-damage response in human biology and disease in Nature .Tens of thousands of DNA in each of the 1013 cells in the human body is damaged each day. These lesions can block genome replication and transcription, and if they are not repaired or are repaired incorrectly, they lead to mutation ... Read on »
NIH Investigators Find Link Between DNA Damage and Immune Response by nih.gov Posted Thu 31 Mar 2011 5:00pm Researchers offer the first evidence that DNA damage can lead to the regulation of inflammatory responses, the body's reaction to injury. The proteins involved in the regulation help protect the body from infection. The study, performed by scientists at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), which i ...
