The yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae has a finite replicative life span. Yeasts possess two prohibitins, Phb1p and Phb2p, in similarity to mammalian cells. These proteins are located in the inner mitochondrial membrane, where they are involved in the processing of newly-synthesized membrane proteins. We demonstrate that the elimination of one or both of the(More)
Age- and diabetes-related neuronal degenerative changes were morphometrically evaluated in the arcuate (ARC) and ventromedial (VMH) hypothalamic nuclei of control (+/?) and diabetic (db/db) C57BL/KsJ mice between 4 and 16 weeks of age. By 4 weeks of age, (db/db) mice exhibited marked obesity and hyperglycemia relative to controls. An increase in the(More)
