Employing biomarkers of healthy ageing for leveraging genetic studies into human longevity

Experimental Gerontology  | 29-06-2016 | Abstract: Genetic studies have thus far identified a limited number of loci associated with human longevity by applying age at death or survival up to advanced ages as phenotype. As an alternative approach, one could first try to identify biomarkers of healthy ageing and the genetic variants associated with [...]

Resistance Training Increases Skeletal Muscle Capillarization in Healthy Older Men

Medicine and science in sports and exercise  | November 2016 |  Abstract: PURPOSE: Skeletal muscle capillarization plays a key role in oxygen and nutrient delivery to muscle. The loss of muscle mass with aging and the concept of anabolic resistance have been, at least partly, attributed to changes in skeletal muscle capillary structure and [...]

Expression of protocadherin gamma in skeletal muscle tissue is associated with age and muscle weakness

J Cachexia Sarcopenia Muscle  |  December 2016 |  Abstract BACKGROUND: The skeletal muscle system plays an important role in the independence of older adults. In this study we examine differences in the skeletal muscle transcriptome between healthy young and older subjects and (pre-)frail older adults. Additionally, we examine the effect of resistance-type exercise training [...]

Extensive Type II Muscle Fiber Atrophy in Elderly Female Hip Fracture Patients

 J Gerontol A Biol Sci Med Science  | November 2016 |  Abstract: Background: Sarcopenia, or the loss of muscle mass and strength, is known to increase the risk for falls and (hip) fractures in older people. The objective of this study was to assess the skeletal muscle fiber characteristics in elderly female hip fracture [...]

Both basal and post-prandial muscle protein synthesis rates, following the ingestion of a leucine-enriched whey protein supplement, are not impaired in sarcopenic older males.

Clinical Nutrition  | September 2016 |  Abstract: BACKGROUND: Studying the muscle protein synthetic response to food intake in elderly is important, as it aids the development of interventions to combat sarcopenia. Although sarcopenic elderly are the target group for many of these nutritional interventions, no studies have assessed basal or post-prandial muscle protein [...]

Hoe veroudering is af te lezen aan ons DNA

9 februari 2017• PERSBERICHT (www.lumc.nl) Tijdens onze ontwikkeling wordt ons DNA zo afgesteld dat in alle cellen van ons lichaam de juiste genen op het juiste moment actief zijn. Maar als we ouder worden raakt die afstelling ontregeld. Mogelijk verklaart dit waarom organen steeds slechter gaan functioneren. LUMC-onderzoeker Roderick Slieker promoveert 9 februari aan de [...]

Hongerdieet verlengt het leven tóch

Veel minder eten verlengt tóch het leven van apen. Daar was lang twijfel over omdat twee experimenten tegengestelde uitkomsten hadden. De twee Amerikaanse onderzoeksteams hebben hun resultaten nu naast elkaar gelegd en de uitkomsten ervan gezamenlijk gepubliceerd in Nature Communications. Onderzoeker Wilbert Vermeij van de Erasmus Universiteit in Rotterdam volgde het Amerikaanse onderzoek over [...]
