Telomeres in Cancer and Aging with Ronald DePinho - Sanford Stem Cell Symposium 2023
Winning the War on Cancer (Audio)

3M ago
Ronald DePinho, M.D., explains how telomerase, typically linked to telomere maintenance, serves as a transcriptional co-activator in the brain. Epigenetic repression of TERT, the gene for telomerase, occurs with aging, contributing to aging hallmarks like cellular senescence and inflammation. DePinho's team developed a compound that reactivates TERT, which, when administered to mice, reverses age-related changes. It restores cognitive function, reduces amyloid plaque, and alleviates inflammation. This suggests that maintaining TERT levels can counteract age-related cognitive decline and neurod ..read more
