new class of drugs identified and validated by Mayo Clinic researchers and their collaborators clearly reduces health problems in mice by limiting the effect of senescent cells – the cells that cause frailty and contribute to diseases associated with age. The researchers say this is a first step toward developing similar treatments for aging patients. Their findings appear today in the journal Aging Cell. ... See MoreSee Less

Mice with a normal set of gut microbes showed evidence of a regular daily microbial cycle, with different species flourishing in different parts of the day and producing different compounds as a result. These compounds appear to act on the liver—they affected how circadian clock genes were expressed in the liver.

Gut microbes affect circadian rhythms We know from studies on jet lag and night shifts that metabolism—how bodies use energy from food—is linked to the body’s circadian rhythms. These rhythms, ...

Direct contact of melanoma cells with the remote epidermal layer triggered an invasion via the activation of "Notch signaling," which turns on a set of genes that promotes changes in melanoma cells, rendering them invasive. According to the study, when a molecule expressed on a cell membrane -- a spike on the surface of a cell, called a ligand -- comes into contact with a melanoma cell, it triggers the transformation of melanoma into an invasive, lethal agent.
