Researchers have discovered a group of molecules that help cells repair damaged components.
For more than a decade, scientists have been struggling to find the “elixir of eternal life” or at least a way to increase our life expectancy. Some of them even succeeded in their research, but the main problem remained to find a method that would not have side effects and negative effects on the human body, writes SciTechDaily.
And it seems that a group of scientists led by professors Enav Gross and Shmuel Ben-Sasson from the Faculty of Medicine at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (HU) have managed to find a solution to the problem. According to scientists, the average life expectancy in the world has already increased due to advances in technology and medicine, but the main task is still to extend life without compromising health.
In the course of research, scientists have discovered a group of molecules that allow cells to restore damaged areas and maintain the ability of tissues to perform the necessary functions.
According to Professor Gross, our cells are powered by tiny “power plants” – mitochondria. They are responsible for the production of energy and the ability of cells to function as they should. Over time, these tiny “power plants” wear out and can no longer perform their functions properly. But our cells also have a complex mechanism that allows them to eliminate defective mitochondria and replace them with new ones. True, over time, this mechanism weakens and cells can no longer replenish mitochondria with high quality – as a result, the whole organism suffers and becomes obsolete.
This degenerative process underlies many different diseases, including Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases, and also heart disease, and the aging process in general.
In their study, scientists have created an innovative combination of molecules, which in the future can become the basis for a cure for diseases that were previously considered incurable. Moreover, it can also be used as a preventive measure to delay the development of age-related diseases.
