Telomerase In Mice

[mage lang=”en|es|fr|en” source=”flickr”]telomerase in mice[/mage]

Watch this remarkable video from ABC Television showing the lab results of two mice.

One was treated with a telomerase suppliment and the other was not. Both mice are the same age and you can see the results of the mouse that was treated showing signs of age reversal.

The mouse’s hair is growing back from where it was once going bald. The grey hairs have been replaced with normal color hair of a younger mouse.

This holds a great deal of promise for human response to telomere suppliment treatments.

Telomerase Therapy Aging

Is it true that there is a chance to live more than the average age of life.?

"Supporters of the extension of human life in order to promote the idea of extending the telomeres in certain cells through the activation of telomerase temporary (drugs), or permanently by gene therapy. They say that it would extend human life. So far, these ideas were not tested in humans. "(Http: / / en.wikipedia.org / wiki / telomeres)

Yes, it is possible to live naturally between 120 and 140 years they were designed to do. This technology telomeres is more "scientific" Gook Gobbly It sounds impressive, but the cancer has already solved this problem. Cancer cells do not lose small parts of telemere ends when the cells divide and, essentially, cancer cells can live forever. We know how to extend the life of 30 to 35 years with better digestion and remethylation cells. You can do this with an activator of potassium in combination with a Betaine HCL source of life, take it after every meal. Do not worry, you do genetic engineering is likely to offset the success of technological advances and the telomeres of how our food and agriculture is now to destroy all hope of a long life. Change the basic shape of the food is grown and processed and will be much longer in line with our lives. Take the work of processing food outside the large corporations and big bags of money to improve our techniques of organic agriculture and the bottom line much better. At this point, since 45 in the world in terms of longevity. 44 countries people live longer than Americans. And the baby boom distorted figures longevity, it seems that we living longer, but the reality is what it is. Sperm count decreases each year and is now scheduled for the year 2050, have no sperm left in the race. This must be a "stimulus" and discussed together, but nobody wants to face the facts that the benefit horrible is held well above healthy food, agriculture and medical industry in America. And for us to think that our government can provide care health! Which is a joke. good luck

Telomerase Process

Could increased cell senescence be avoided during healing process by activating the telomerase gene?

During a healing process, our cells divide to repair a damaged area of our body. Telomere sequences are therefore shortened by this process, reducing the lifespan of the newly created cells.

Theoretically, could this be avoided by enabling the telomerase gene in the cells as they reproduce and then disabled upon successful completion of the process or would it be impossible to disable the gene in such a large amount of cells?

(Obviously the cells would need to be monitored to ensure that any defective cells are removed to avoid cancer developing.)

I think, theoretically, this may be feasible. But remember that the effect of activating the telomerase doesn’t apply to all cells. Our body is composed of so many complex tissues and cells. An effect on one cell doesn’t necessarily mean the same effect to all other cells.

Yes, I agree that you must first remove any defective cells to avoid cancer development since activation of telomerase makes some cells immortal (that is, if there are cancer cells, it will multiply and live forever making it hard to destroy them). However, detection of defective cells involves a very tedious and complex process and you might end up destroying the good cells.

Besides, our body needs cell senescence. The process of senescence is complex, and may derive from a variety of different mechanisms and exist for a variety of different reasons. Senescence is not universal, and scientific evidence suggests that cellular senescence evolved in certain species as a mechanism to prevent the onset of cancer. In a few simple species, senescence is negligible and cannot be detected. All such species have no “post-mitotic” cells; they reduce the effect of damaging free radicals by cell division and dilution.

These are just my thoughts. Please feel free to correct me if I misunderstood some of the terms.

HELP multiple choice?

The enzyme telomerase solves the problem of replication at the ends of linear chromosomes by which method?

A)adding a single 5′ cap structure that resists degradation by nucleases
B)adding numerous GC pairs which resist hydrolysis and maintain chromosome integrity
C)adding numerous short DNA sequences such as TTAGGG, which form a hairpin turn
D)causing specific double strand DNA breaks that result in blunt ends on both strands
