Global Technology – October 2014
Next, let’s focus on this month’s most important advances in technology, starting with a breakthrough in anti-aging research.
As recently reported in the journal Cell Reports, UCLA biologists have identified a gene that can slow the aging process throughout the entire body when activated remotely in key organ systems.
Working with fruit flies, the scientists activated a gene called AMPK that is a key energy sensor in cells; it gets activated when cellular energy levels are low.
Increasing the amount of AMPK in th.....
