Green tea epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) and other flavonoids reduce Alzheimer's amyloid-induced mitochondrial dysfunction.
Amyloid-β (Aβ)-induced mitochondrial dysfunction may play a role in the onset and progression of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Therefore, therapeutics targeted to improve mitochondrial function could beExpand

Melatonin treatment restores mitochondrial function in Alzheimer’s mice: a mitochondrial protective role of melatonin membrane receptor signaling
Abstract:  Mitochondrial dysfunction is a hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and is observed in mutant amyloid precursor protein (APP) transgenic mouse models of familial AD. Melatonin is a potentExpand

Metabolome and proteome changes with aging in Caenorhabditis elegans
To expand the understanding of aging in the model organism Caenorhabditis elegans, global quantification of metabolite and protein levels in young and aged nematodes was performed using massExpand

Mechanisms of amino acid-mediated lifespan extension in Caenorhabditis elegans
BackgroundLittle is known about the role of amino acids in cellular signaling pathways, especially as it pertains to pathways that regulate the rate of aging. However, it has been shown thatExpand

Caffeine increases mitochondrial function and blocks melatonin signaling to mitochondria in Alzheimer's mice and cells
Caffeine and melatonin have been shown to protect the Swedish mutant amyloid precursor protein (APP(sw)) transgenic mouse model of Alzheimer's disease from cognitive dysfunction. But their mechanismsExpand

D-beta-hydroxybutyrate extends lifespan in C. elegans
The ketone body beta-hydroxybutyrate (βHB) is a histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitor and has been shown to be protective in many disease models, but its effects on aging are not well studied.Expand

Malate and Fumarate Extend Lifespan in Caenorhabditis elegans
Malate, the tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle metabolite, increased lifespan and thermotolerance in the nematode C. elegans. Malate can be synthesized from fumarate by the enzyme fumarase and furtherExpand

D-ß-hydroxybutyrate: an anti-aging ketone body
During times of starvation or limited carbohydrate consumption when glycogen stores are diminished, triglycerides in adipose tissue are broken down into fatty acids and transported to the liver.Expand

The Deanna protocol supplement complex supports mitochondrial energy metabolism and prolongs lifespan in preclinical models of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
IntroductionAmyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a neurodegenerative disorder of motor neurons causing progressive muscle weakness, paralysis, and eventual death from respiratory failure. There isExpand
