The proportion of genes in a functional category is linked to mass-specific metabolic rate and lifespan

Abstract: Metabolic rate and life are two significant biological variables that are being investigated in a variety of research fields. We found that the percentage of genes in a functional category, not genome size, was related to mass-specific metabolic rate and maximal lifespan. In particular, the number of genes involved in oxic reactions was strongly related to these two biological measurements. When investigating the correlations between genome, metabolic rate, and lifespan, our results show that considering the biological functions of genes is crucial.

Enhancing S-adenosyl-methionine catabolism extends Drosophila lifespan

Limiting The first metabolic reaction of dietary methionine extends life in Caenorhabditis elegans but accelerates pathology in mammals. Here's why, as an alternative to slowing SAM synthesis, we show that, by glycine N methyltransferase, an SAM catabolism enhancement extends the life in Drosophila. In either high-methionine or low-sams settings, Gnmt maintains systemic SAM levels by producing sarcosine. During ageing, systemic SAM levels in flies have been raised. This age-dependent SAM rises and extends longevity thanks to overexpression of gnmt. According to our report, Gnmt's regulation of SAM levels is a key element of life extension.

Tracking sexual dimorphism of facial width-to-height ratio across the lifespan: implications for perceived aggressiveness

Females have higher FWHR than females, which may be because FWHR is a sexually dimorphic function. However, evidence for sexual dimorphism is mixed, no data is available on how it differs with age, and there is no agreement between sexual dimorphism and perceived aggression is known. At 27. u201333 and females at 34:u201361, the strongest link between FWHR and perceived aggressiveness was strongest for males at 27—u201333 and females at 34, U201361. Raters were the most sensitive to human differences in FWHR for young adult male faces, suggesting heightened sensitivity to FWHR as a clue to aggression.

“How Come You Don’t Call Me?” Smartphone Communication App Usage as an Indicator of Loneliness and Social Well-Being across the Adult Lifespan during the COVID-19 Pandemic

In a sample of 364 participants aged from 18 to 78 years old, with the CORONA HEALTH APP survey spanning from July to December 2020 in Germany, we investigated the usefulness of smartphone communication app data for predicting subjective loneliness and social well-being. When considering the age of participants, smartphone call usage times were only associated with social stability and loneliness. Younger participants with higher usage times tended to experience less social stability and loneliness, while older adults with greater use times reported less social stability and loneliness.

Trade-off between reproduction and lifespan of the rotifer Brachionus plicatilis under different food conditions

We examined how rotifers respond by changing life history when feeding on various quality foods, including 100% Chlorella, a mixture of 50% P. rotifers exposed to 100% Chlorella or mixed diets, according to the study, produced more total offspring and increased age-specific fecundity than those exposed to 100% P. The overall results of rotifer cultured in 100 percent Chlorella or mixed diets were significantly higher than those raised in 100% P. Chlorella prefers rotifer reproduction at a lower price over a longer life, in comparison to P. The global globosa tends to prolong the life of rotifers with lower fecundity, indicating that a trade-off exists between reproduction and lifespan under different food conditions. The current research also shows that rotifers may have the ability to identify disease-control P.

Lifespan Gyrification Trajectories of Human Brain in Healthy Individuals and Patients with Major Psychiatric Disorders

The brain cortical gyrification transitions from childhood to old age in healthy human subjects is also unclear. However, it is also unknown if gyrification over the brain's course is changed in patients with severe psychiatric disorders. We investigated the trajectories of gyrification in three independent cohorts based on structural brain scans of 881 subjects from age 4 to 83 in this study. We also discovered that the gyrification trajectories of patients with MDD, BD, and SCZ differed from the healthy one during adulthood, indicating altered aging in the brain of these patients.

Papilloma-pseudovirus eradicates intestinal tumours and triples the lifespan of ApcMin/+ mice

Abstract: In combination with immune checkpoint blockade tactics, inducing tumor-specific adaptive immunity, such as cytotoxic T lymphocyte response, may lead to promising antitumour activity against several human malignancies. However, it is also unknown if innate immunity activation could lead to immediate tumoricidal effects. Thus, targeting innate immune sensors in tumours caused by the pseudoviruses could be a way to tackle intestinal tumours.

Low-level mitochondrial heteroplasmy modulates DNA replication, glucose metabolism and lifespan in mice

We then developed a conplastic mouse strain carrying the mitochondrial genome of an AKR/J mouse strain in a C57BL/6 J nuclear genomic background, resulting in > 20% heterogeneity in the earliest of light-strand DNA replication. Our results reveal that physiologically significant differences in mtDNA heteroplasmy levels at a single, highly variable location in mice impair the metabolic health and lifespan.

Simultaneous Ablation of the Catalytic AMPK α-Subunit SNF1 and Mitochondrial Matrix Protease CLPP Results in Pronounced Lifespan Extension

We looked at P. anserina's energy metabolism in the current study. In cultures of the PaClpP mutant and the wild type, an age-dependent metabolome analysis of the wild type and a PaClpP deletion strain revealed variations and changes of various metabolites. We created and analyzed a PaSnf1 deletion mutant and a PaClpP double mutant based on these results. Although the single PaSnf1 deletion mutant is characterized by a slight lifespan extension, simultaneous deletion of PaSnf1 and PaClpP leads to a dramatic lifespan extension. A short-lived PaSnf1/u0394 PaClpP double mutant with a short-lived phenotype of the u0394 PaSnf1/u0394 PaClpP double mutant has been observed in comparison to the wild type's culture temperature of 35°C rather than the standard laboratory temperature of 27-30°C.
