A new study outlines multiple ways in which epiblast stem cells can be reprogrammed back into a fully pluripotent state, paving the way for a better understanding of epigenetics. The role of epigenetics Epigenetics are why our cells, which all have the same DNA, differ in function. A bone cell has the same genetics as…

Today, we want to draw attention to a new study that shows how partial cellular reprogramming was able to reverse cellular aging and address age- and injury-induced blindness in mice. Epigenetic alterations One of the proposed reasons we age is the changes to gene expression that our cells experience as we get older; these are…

At the Undoing Aging 2019 conference, we had the opportunity to interview Yuri Deigin, the CEO of Youthereum Genetics. His company is developing therapies that focus on OSKM, the Yamanaka factors known for turning cells back into a pluripotent state. By partially reprogramming cells using a single component of OSKM, Oct4, the company hopes to…

We recently attended the Undoing Aging Conference in Berlin and had the opportunity to interview Professor Vittorio Sebastiano of Turn.Bio, a company developing partial cellular reprogramming techniques to reverse cellular aging. As we age, our cells experience changes to their epigenetic markers, and this, in turn, changes gene expression, which is proposed to be a…

We have talked about the potential of partial cellular reprogramming in previous articles, and today, we want to draw attention to a new paper that promises to further refine reversal of epigenetic aging in cells. As we age, our cells experience alterations to their epigenetic markers, and this changes gene expression, which is proposed to…

Today, we chronicle the progress of OSKM and discuss how this powerful treatment may be able to reprogram cells back into a youthful state, at least partially reversing the hallmark of epigenetic alterations and other hallmarks as well. The birth of cellular reprogramming In 2006, a study by Drs. Takahashi and Yamanaka showed that it…
