Published: 30 January 2023
...Bin-Yan Hsu; Nina Cossin-Sevrin; Antoine Stier; Suvi Ruuskanen Early-life environment is known to affect later-life health and disease, which could be mediated by the early-life programming of telomere length, a key hallmark of ageing. According to the fetal programming of telomere biology...

... growth could come at a cost in terms of telomere loss ( Monaghan and Ozanne, 2018 ). Telomeres are repetitive non-coding sequences of DNA located at the ends of chromosomes that maintain genomic integrity and stability ( De Lange et al., 2006 ). Telomeres usually shorten with age, and this shortening...

...Andrew W. McCracken; Eleanor Buckle; Mirre J. P. Simons ABSTRACT Dietary restriction (DR) is a key focus in ageing research. Specific conditions and genotypes were recently found to negate lifespan extension by DR, questioning its universal relevance. However, the concept of dietary reaction norms...

This means that across species a gram of tissue on average expends about the same amount of energy before it dies regardless of whether that tissue is located in a shrew, a cow, an elephant or a whale. This fact led to the notion that ageing and lifespan...
