Accumulating evidence indicates that a number of tissues are damaged due to build-up of abnormal amount of Advanced Glycation End products (AGEs) in several diseases including diabetes. Currently AGE inhibitors are scarce in clinical use indicating a need for development of new anti-AGE agents. The aim of the current study is to identify the new AGE inhibitors and to decipher their mechanism of action for alleviating symptoms of diabetes in mice. Among several derivatives, one of the derivatives of indanedione, IDD-24 demonstrated highest inhibition of AGE formation and AGE mediated reactive oxygen species production in HepG-2 and mature 3T3-L1 adipocytes...

Liver-resident macrophages (Kupffer cells, KCs) and autophagy play critical roles in the pathogenesis of toxin-induced liver injury. Recent evidence indicates that autophagy can regulate macrophage M1/M2 polarization under different inflammatory conditions. Polyamines, including putrescine, spermidine, and spermine (SPM), are polycations with anti-oxidative, anti-aging, and cell autophagy induction properties. This study aimed to determine the mechanisms by which SPM protects against thioacetamide (TAA)-induced acute liver injury in a mouse model...

To clarify appropriateness of current claims for health and wellness virtues of argan oil, studies were conducted in inflammatory states. LPS induces inflammation with reduction of PGC1- α signaling and energy metabolism. Argan oil protected the liver against LPS toxicity and interestingly enough preservation of peroxisomal acyl-CoA oxidase type 1 (ACOX1) activity against depression by LPS. This model of LPS-driven toxicity circumvented by argan oil along with a key anti-inflammatory role attributed to ACOX1 has been here transposed to model aging...

UVA exposure strongly affects the ageing of human skin by modifying both epidermis and dermis and their cross talk as well. The possibility to get a deep understanding in vitro of such crucial mechanism would have a huge impact in the development of anti-ageing compounds. Here we present a full thickness model of human skin equivalent formed by a millimeter-sized dermis completely composed of fibroblasts embedded in their own extra-cellular matrix (ECM). We show that such endogenous nature of the dermis compartment allows the replication of the complexity of the mutual interactions occurring between cellular and extracellular components of the skin under UVA exposure: (i) oxidative stress formation in the whole tissue (dermis and epidermis); (ii) senescence of germinative layer of epidermal tissue in terms of p63, ki67 and activated caspase-3 regulation; (iii) modification of the collagenous network architecture in the dermis compartment...

Role of growth hormone (GH) in mammalian aging is actively explored in clinical, epidemiological, and experimental studies. The age-related decline in GH levels is variously interpreted as a symptom of neuroendocrine aging, as one of causes of altered body composition and other unwelcome symptoms of aging, or as a mechanism of natural protection from cancer and other chronic diseases. Absence of GH signals due to mutations affecting anterior pituitary development, GH secretion, or GH receptors produces an impressive extension of longevity in laboratory mice...

The quality of postovulatory metaphase II oocytes undergoes a time-dependent deterioration as a result of the aging process. Melatonin is considered an anti-aging agent. However, the underlying mechanisms of how melatonin improves the quality of postovulatory aged oocytes remain largely unclear. In this study, by using mouse model, we found that there were elevated ROS levels and impaired mitochondrial function demonstrated by reduced mitochondrial membrane potential (ΔΨm) and increased mitochondrial aggregation in oocytes aged 24 h, accompanied by an increased number of meiotic errors, unregulated autophagy-related proteins and early apoptosis, which led to decreased oocyte quality and disrupted developmental competence...

An increase in reactive oxygen species (ROS) plays a key role in aging and apoptosis in mesenchymal stem cells derived from bone marrow (BMSCs). NADPH oxidase Nox2 serves as an important source of intracellular ROS formation. This study is designed to determine if blocking Nox2 enhances anti-apoptotic and anti-aging ability of BMSCs to oxidant stress, and thus improves therapeutic efficacy in myocardial infarction (MI). Nox2 inhibitor (Acetovanillone) and Nox2 siRNA were used to block Nox2 in BMSCs, and the cell viability, apoptosis, senescence and survival of BMSCs were determined by CCK-8, Edu staining, TUNEL staining, β-galactosidase (β-gal) assay and DAPI labeling...

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD + ) biosynthesis and its regulation have recently been attracting markedly increasing interest. Aging is marked by a systemic decrease in NAD + across multiple tissues. The dysfunction of NAD + biosynthesis plays a critical role in the pathophysiologies of multiple diseases, including age-associated metabolic disorders, neurodegenerative diseases, and mental disorders. As downstream effectors, NAD + -dependent enzymes, such as sirtuins, are involved in the progression of such disorders...
