Many studies suggest that age differences in a variety of cognitive tasks are due to age-related changes in executive control processes. However, not all executive control processes seem to be age-sensitive. Recently, Verhaeghen et al. (2005) described dissociable age effects in an executive control process responsible for the switching of ...

Mitochondria regulate cellular bioenergetics and apoptosis and have been implicated in aging. However, it remains unclear whether age-related loss of muscle mass, known as sarcopenia, is associated with abnormal mitochondrial function. Two technically different approaches have mainly been used to measure mitochondrial function: isolated mitochondria and permeabilized myofiber bundles, but ...

A facile synthetic route to a new polycyclic pyrrole derivative, 3,8-diethyl-1,10-dihydro-benzo[e]pyrrolo[3,2-g]indole (1), is reported. This annulated bipyrrole acts as a monomer for electropolymerization and forms an electrochromic conducting polymer (poly1) when electrooxidized at low potentials (0.4 V vs Ag/Ag(+)) in acetonitrile. The presence of alkyl substituents at the 3 and ...

The formation of advanced glycation endproducts (AGEs) occurs in diverse settings such as diabetes, aging, renal failure, inflammation and hypoxia. The chief cellular receptor for AGEs, RAGE, transduces the effects of AGEs via signal transduction, at least in part via processes requiring the RAGE cytoplasmic domain binding partner, diaphanous-1 or ...

Studies of long-lived Caenorhabditis elegans mutants have identified several genes that function to limit lifespan, i.e., loss-of-function mutations in these genes promote longevity. By contrast, little is known about genes that normally act to delay aging and that when mutated cause premature aging (progeria). To seek such genes, we performed ...
