The discovery of miracle molecules could make life easier
Israeli researchers have discovered a group of miracle molecules that could slow the effects of aging.
According to the study published in the Israeli journal, researchers are hopeful that soon.
these molecules will be used to develop a drug.
it will be useful in age-related diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.
Researchers have discovered a molecule that can protect human cells from the effects of aging.
delay the aging process, making it possible for human tissues to maintain their function for a long time. .
Researchers say that an important factor in the process of aging is the weakening of the quality control mechanism of cells.
the effects of aging on humans appear. When this system starts to weaken with age, it leads to a build-up of damaged mitochondria
Professor Einav Gross (Einav Gross) says that mitochondria act as ‘power plants’ for cells.
Mitochondria can be compared to tiny electric batteries that help cells function properly.
Although these ‘batteries’ are constantly depleted, our cells have a sophisticated mechanism.
removes damaged mitochondria and replaces them with new ones.
However, this system weakens with age, causing human cells to malfunction, which can lead to various diseases such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and heart disease.
The scientists hope that their drug can act as a preventative measure to repair and prevent cellular damage before any disease begins in the aging population worldwide.
“We hope that in the future we will be able to significantly reduce the development of many age-related diseases and improve people’s quality of life,” says Shmuel Ben Sasson, co-researcher of the paper.
