Ganodermasides C and D, Two New Anti-Aging Ergosterols from Spores of the Medicinal Mushroom Ganoderma lucidum

Two new anti-aging compounds, ganodermasides C and D, were isolated and their structures elucidated, and significantly extended the replicative lifespan of the K6001 yeast strain.

Novel Anti-Aging Benzoquinone Derivatives from Onosma bracteatum Wall

Results indicated that 1, 2, 4 and 5 significantly extended the replicative lifespan of K6001 yeast, indicating that these benzoquinones obtained from O. brateatum have the ability to be employed as a potential therapeutic agent against age-related diseases.

Meroterpenoids and Steroids from the Marine-Derived Fungus Trametes sp. ZYX-Z-16

The chemical investigation on the EtOAc extract of the fermentation broth of the marine-derived fungus Trametes sp.

Sesquiterpene glucosides from Shenzhou honey peach fruit showed the anti-aging activity in the evaluation system using yeasts

The result revealed that treatment with SZMT01 increased the survival rate of yeast under oxidative stress, and it was demonstrated that anti-oxidative stress performs important roles in anti-aging effects of SZ MT01.

Structure and Biological Activity of Ergostane-Type Steroids from Fungi

Mushrooms are known not only for their taste but also for beneficial effects on health attributed to plethora of constituents. All mushrooms belong to the kingdom of fungi, which also includes yeasts

Structure Characterization and Action Mechanism of an Antiaging New Compound from Gastrodia elata Blume

Results indicated that antioxidative stress played an important role in the antiaging effect of 1; Sir2 and Uth1 genes were involved in antiaging effects of 1.

Preparation and application of ergosterin derivative

An anti-aging yeast model and a mutant strain thereof prove that the ergosterin derivative influences the gene expression of the UTH1 by regulating the activity of the Skn7 so as to prolong the duplicability life of yeast.

Lanostane Triterpenoids and Ergostane Steroids from Ganoderma luteomarginatum and Their Cytotoxicity

Macrofungus Ganoderma luteomarginatum is one of the main species of Ganoderma fungi distributed in Hainan province of China, the fruiting bodies of which have been widely used in folk as a healthy

Antiaging of Cucurbitane Glycosides from Fruits of Momordica charantia L.

It is demonstrated that compound 9 exerts antiaging effects via antioxidative stress and regulation of UTH1, SKN7, SOD1, and SOD2 yeast gene expression, which significantly increases the survival rate of yeast under oxidative stress and decreases ROS level.



Variation in cytostatic constituents of a sponge-derived Gymnascella dankaliensis by manipulating the carbon source.

The Halichondria sponge-derived fungus, Gymnacella dankaliensis, was cultured in two different media conditions and two extremely unusual steroids, dankasterones A and B, exhibited significant growth inhibition against the murine P388 cancer cell line.

Resveratrol and neurodegenerative diseases: activation of SIRT1 as the potential pathway towards neuroprotection.

This review summarises recent research on the molecular mechanisms through which resveratrol might exert its therapeutic effects via the interaction with Sirtuin 1, as well as other targets and discusses the possibility of using resver atrol in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases.

Small molecule activators of sirtuins extend Saccharomyces cerevisiae lifespan

The potent activator resveratrol, a polyphenol found in red wine, lowers the Michaelis constant of SIRT1 for both the acetylated substrate and NAD+, and increases cell survival by stimulating Sirt1-dependent deacetylation of p53.

Resveratrol improves health and survival of mice on a high-calorie diet

It is shown that resveratrol shifts the physiology of middle-aged mice on a high-calorie diet towards that of mice onA standard diet and significantly increases their survival and point to new approaches for treating obesity-related disorders and diseases of ageing.

Metabolic-State-Dependent Remodeling of the Transcriptome in Response to Anoxia and Subsequent Reoxygenation in Saccharomyces cerevisiae

A comprehensive genomic analysis of the temporal response of yeast to anaerobiosis and subsequent aerobic recovery is conducted to reveal metabolic-state (galactose versus glucose)-dependent differences in gene network activity and function.
