Secrets of longevity protein revealed 18.1.2018 General News
Scientists have unveiled the 3D structure of a protein linked to longer lives, paving the way for new therapies to treat a wide range of medical conditions, including diabetes, obesity and certain cancers. Named after the Greek goddess who spun the thread of life, Klotho proteins play an important role in the regulation of longevity and metabolism. Researchers from Yale University in the US revealed the three-dimensional structure of one of these proteins, beta- Klotho, illuminating its intricate mechanism and therapeutic potential.

Eating high-salt diet may lead to dementia: study 17.1.2018 General News
A high-salt diet reduces resting blood flow to the brain and may cause dementia, a study in mice suggests. Published in the journal Nature Neuroscience, the study is the first to unveil a gut-brain connection linking high dietary salt intake to neurovascular and cognitive impairment. The findings illuminate a potential future target for countering harmful effects to the brain caused by excess salt consumption. "We discovered that mice fed a high-salt diet developed dementia even when blood pressure did not rise," said Costantino Iadecola, from Weill Cornell Medicine in the US. "This was surprising since, in humans, the deleterious effects of salt on cognition were attributed to hypertension," said Iadecola. A vast majority, about 90 per cent of American adults, consume more dietary sodium than the recommended 2,300 milligrammes per day. The mice were given food containing four per cent or eight per cent salt, representing an 8- to 16-fold increase in salt compared to a ..
