Scientists have discovered inhibitor of aging

American scientists have found that in the body of living beings is, a protein that acts as a natural inhibitor of aging.This discovery will be used for the prevention and treatment of degenerative diseases associated with old age.American scientists have found that in the body of living beings is, a protein that acts as a natural inhibitor of aging.This discovery will be used for the prevention and treatment of degenerative diseases associated with old age.

According to RIA "Novosti", the study conducted University of California employees, located in San Diego.They examined the body fruit flies and found that one of the proteins in their body responsible for metabolism and aging.He stands out in the case where the living cell is under stress.

Further work revealed that the structure and biochemical function of the protein is identical in flies, large animals and even humans."Pathology because of insufficient work Sestrins included the accumulation of fat in the body, the appearance of cardiac arrhyth

mia and degeneration of muscles, even in young flies These pathologies are remarkably similar to common disorders of the body -. Overweight, cardiac insufficiency and muscle loss that accompany aging in humans"- said professor Michael Karin, who led the team of researchers.

a further object of the scientists will study the effect of it on the sister's senile degenerative diseases in humans, the cause of which is the science can not define."Perhaps one day we will learn to use protein molecules similar to those studied by us sister's to prevent the withering away of the skin associated with aging, as well as to treat a range of degenerative diseases, the occurrence of which is associated with old age, such as loss of muscle mass andAlzheimer's disease ", - declared Karin.

Earlier, the major success achieved in this area by British scientists who have identified combinations of genes responsible for the rate of biological aging."We found that some people are genetically programmed to ensure that age faster, and some may long to keep a youth", - explained the researchers from the United Kingdom.
