Resveratrol and the Pharmacology of Aging: A New Vertebrate Model to Validate an Old Molecule
TLDR
This result identifies resveratrol as the first molecule which consistently retards aging in organisms as diverse as yeast, worm, fly and fish, but it also reveals the potential of this short-lived fish as an animal model for pharmacological research.
Resveratrol Attenuates Oxidative Stress and Extends Life Span in the Annual Fish Nothobranchius guentheri.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that resveratrol prolonged longevity of the annual fish Nothobranchius guentheri, a promising vertebrate model for anti-aging research and little is known about its effects on oxidative stress.
The effect of resveratrol on lifespan depends on both gender and dietary nutrient composition in Drosophila melanogaster
TLDR
The results suggest that the gender-specific prolongevity effect of resveratrol is influenced by dietary composition and resver atrol promotes the survival of flies by modulating genetic pathways that can reduce cellular damage.
The short-lived fish Nothobranchius furzeri as a new model system for aging studies
Intermittent food restriction initiated late in life prolongs lifespan and retards the onset of age-related markers in the annual fish Nothobranchius guentheri
TLDR
The findings suggest that late-onset IFR can retard the onset of age-related markers, and prolong the lifespan of the aging fish, via a synergistic action of an anti-oxidant system and the IIS pathway.
Resveratrol improves health and survival of mice on a high-calorie diet
TLDR
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.
The lifespan extension effects of resveratrol are conserved in the honey bee and may be driven by a mechanism related to caloric restriction
TLDR
This work supplemented the diets of honey bees and measured lifespan, olfactory learning, and gustatory responsiveness to sucrose, and found that individuals fed a high dose of resveratrol—compared to controls—ingested fewer quantities of food under ad libitum feeding conditions.

Extremely short lifespan in the annual fish Nothobranchius furzeri
TLDR
The temporal trajectory of survival shows an age-dependent increase in the mortality rate that is typical of organisms with defined lifespans, and N. furzeri could be used as a convenient model for ageing research.
IGF-1 receptor regulates lifespan and resistance to oxidative stress in mice
TLDR
Results indicate that the IGF-1 receptor may be a central regulator of mammalian lifespan, and shows greater resistance to oxidative stress.
Small molecule activators of sirtuins extend Saccharomyces cerevisiae lifespan
TLDR
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.
Substrate-specific Activation of Sirtuins by Resveratrol*
TLDR
It is shown here that resveratrol is a substrate-specific activator of yeast Sir2 and human SirT1 and that in three different yeast strain backgrounds, resver atrol has no detectable effect on Sir2 activity in vivo, as measured by rDNA recombination, transcriptional silencing near telomeres, and life span.
Annual fishes of the genus Nothobranchius as a model system for aging research
TLDR
These fishes can become excellent models for aging studies and can be employed to test the effects of experimental manipulation on aging at a pace comparable with that of Drosophila and to probe the results of natural selection on the evolution of aging‐related genes.
Dietary restriction, mortality trajectories, risk and damage
Extension of Drosophila lifespan by overexpression of human SOD1 in motorneurons
TLDR
Elevated resistance to oxidative stress suggests that the lifespan extension observed in these flies is due to enhanced RO metabolism, and results show that SOD activity in motorneurons is an important factor in ageing and lifespan determination in Drosophila.
Demography of Dietary Restriction and Death in Drosophila
TLDR
Dietary restriction in Drosophila extends life-span entirely by reducing the short-term risk of death, and two days after the application of DR at any age for the first time, previously fully fed flies are no more likely to die.
Sirtuin activators mimic caloric restriction and delay ageing in metazoans
TLDR
It is shown that resveratrol and other STACs activate sirtuins from Caenorhabditis elegans and Drosophila melanogaster, and extend the lifespan of these animals without reducing fecundity, indicating that STacs slow metazoan ageing by mechanisms that may be related to caloric restriction.
A Dietary Supplement Abolishes Age-Related Cognitive Decline in Transgenic Mice Expressing Elevated Free Radical Processes
TLDR
The cognitive decline of TGM was abolished by a complex “anti-aging” dietary supplement formulated to promote membrane and mitochondrial integrity, increase insulin sensitivity, reduce reactive oxygen and nitrogen species, and ameliorate inflammation.
