Rejuvenation Biotechnology 2016 (RB2016) Livestreaming NOW!

Recommended Posts

All:

 

Shoot ... I really thought that someone had already posted this! My bad  ....

 

Some amazing science already, particularly Cohen's work on mitochondrially-derived peptides. Everything very high-level (meaning not granular) this year. Sign up if you still can and tune in!

I'm subscribed to the SENS YouTube channel, and was updated immediately.

The full (unedited) multi-hour video was posted immediately after the LiveStream (both days).

Hopefully, they'll chunk it to separate presentations as they have in prev. years.

 

Personal fave: Judith Campisi on cancer.

Which indeed seems to be the case.
 
Here's AdG himself with a quick opener,  surprisingly featuring a lot of pure CR content ...

 

A good slide is:

Now going thru Pinchas Cohen KEYNOTE presentation here ...

 

Cohen's key focus is on relatively-newly discovered humanin peptide (link to Cohen's USC Lab):

 

 

Recent studies identified a novel mitochondrial-derived peptide (MDP) named humanin. Humanin (HN) is a 24 amino-acid peptide, encoded from the 16S ribosomal RNA region of the mitochondrial DNA, originally described as a neurosurvival factor capable of antagonizing Alzheimer's disease-related cell death insults. We have also shown that HN has potent actions on many processes related to aging, such as development in zebrafish, insulin sensitization, and beta-cell function.

 

I Googled "humanin peptide calorie restriction" and came up with almost zilch. (I was looking for the usual up/down regulation link between CR and molecule; e.g., CR and IGF, etc.). Wiki notes: "The Cohen lab (Pinchas Cohen) independently discovered humanin when screening for proteins that interact with IGFBP3".

 

Although Cohen does note humanin's "similarity to CR/fasting", methinks no researcher has yet formally investigated humanin/CR link(s). Is this correct?

 

EDIT: Any CR/humanin correlation makes me wonder about other correlations ... like humanin and that vulgar "p-word" ... p-p-p-p-p-protein. Specifically, protein intake.
