“flow-FISH was more accurate, reproducible, sensitive, and specific in the measurement of human leukocyte’s telomere length in comparison to qPCR”
Instead of being thrown off the the trail by the differences, we should find the commonalities. Both models of aging- oxidative damage and telomere shortening cause chromosome disruption and bone marrow mesenchymal stem cell damage and depletion.
This week, the future became the present, as scientists published a study showing that an engineered molecule that facilitates cell death could reverse signs of aging in mice and hopefully cure aging
What we need is to imagine different types of questions that incorporate more meaningful queries; garbage in, garbage out, in other words. Time to ask better questions!
In the second of three interviews with Bill Andrews at the 2016 AMMG, we discuss the Henrietta Lacks (or HeLa) cervical cancer cells commonly used in cell research. Dr. Andrews also discusses why telomere erosion is less a factor in mice aging.
