Causes of Aging: Genomic Instability

Causes of Aging: Genomic Instability

Our DNA contains the instructions to build our cells, and so our body. Consider the DNA as an instruction manual for how to build a human. DNA contains the code for making thousands of different proteins, which build up our cells and carry out most of the functions of...

Causes of Aging: Mitochondrial Dysfunction

Causes of Aging: Mitochondrial Dysfunction

The mitochondria are the powerplants of our cells. They generate the energy cells need to function properly. The reason why we eat food and breathe oxygen is to mainly keep our mitochondria going. The sugars, fats and amino acids from our food, and the oxygen we...

Causes of Aging: Loss of Proteostasis

Causes of Aging: Loss of Proteostasis

Each cell in our body contains millions of proteins. Proteins are the building blocks of our cells. Proteins are also the working horses given they carry out most of the functions in our cells. For example, there are proteins that form channels (gates) in the...

Causes Of Aging: Epigenetic Alterations

Causes Of Aging: Epigenetic Alterations

The epigenome plays an important role in aging. The epigenome determines which genes are switched on or off. As we get older the epigenome becomes more dysregulated, leading to genes that are switched on that should be switched off, like pro-cancer or pro-inflammatory...
