High Vinculin Levels Help Keep Aging Fruit Fly Hearts Young

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

In the heart, aging can disrupt the protein network within muscle cells that move blood around the body. However, a new discovery in how heart muscles maintain their shape in fruit flies sheds light on the crucial relationship between cardiac function, metabolism, and longevity. Researchers have discovered that maintaining high levels of the protein vinculin confers health benefits to fruit flies. Their work, published in APL Bioengineering, shows that fruit flies bred to produce 50 percent more vinculin enjoyed better cardiovascular health and lived a third of their average life span longer.

Researchers Discover Gene That Controls Bone-to-Fat Ratio in Bone Marrow

University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Health Sciences

UCLA researchers have found that the PGC-1α gene, previously known to control human metabolism, also controls the equilibrium of bone and fat in bone marrow and also how an adult stem cell expresses its final cell type. The findings could lead to a better understanding of the disruption of bone-to-fat ratio in bone marrow and its health consequences, and point to the gene as a therapeutic target in the treatment of osteoporosis and skeletal aging.

Rise of the Clones

Harvard Medical School

Researchers discover new clues about a recently identified blood cell condition known as clonal hematopoiesis, implicated in hematologic cancers, cardiovascular illness Surprisingly, the study reveals that inherited genetic variants can drive the condition by fueling additional mutations later in life The findings can help inform ways to gauge disease risk based on specific mutations, develop strategies to avert disease Clonal hematopoiesis is estimated to affect more than 1 in 10 people older than 65

Nathan Bryan, Ph.D., Top Nitric Oxide Expert, Will Tell IFT More Must Be Done to Explain the Significant Health Benefits of Nitric Oxide to Cardiovascular Healthcare Providers and Consumers

Nathan Bryan, Ph.D.

Nathan Bryan, Ph.D., one of the top researchers in the world on nitric oxide (NO), will tell attendees of the Institute of Food Technologists Annual Meeting that “a significant body of evidence exists for beneficial cardiovascular effects such as blood pressure, platelets and endothelial function, which are directly associated with NO production in the body. Despite this evidence, too many healthcare providers, food scientists and nutritionists have very little familiarity with these important discoveries, and consumers also have little or no knowledge of this ‘miracle molecule.’”
