Studies of the mTOR pathway have prompted speculation that diminished mTOR complex-1 (mTORC1) function may be involved in controlling the aging process. Our previous studies have shown diminished mTORC1 activity in tissues of three long-lived mutant mice: Snell dwarf mice, growth hormone receptor gene disrupted mice (GHRKO), and in this article, mice(More)
The involvement of mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) in lifespan control in invertebrates, calorie-restricted rodents, and extension of mouse lifespan by rapamycin have prompted speculation that diminished mTOR function may contribute to mammalian longevity in several settings. We show here that mTOR complex-1 (mTORC1) activity is indeed lower in liver,(More)
OBJECTIVE In accordance with the literature, our previous epidemiological, clinical and genetical investigations have confirmed a correlation between generalized osteoarthritis (GOA) and Heberden's nodes. Heberden's nodes can be considered as genetic markers for the existence of a generalized osteoarthritic predisposition. The present study's concern was to(More)
QUESTIONS In case of Heberden's nodes the osteoarthritis starts with a so called tidemark flaking as a reaction to a subchondral ossification. The question was, if a differentiation in relation to a control group by an objective score is possible. METHODS 218 finger joints from 56 cadavers were investigated morphologically (score). RESULTS The(More)
