It said that scientists have found an anti-ageing enzyme that protects cells from decay.
This research looked at how a calorie-restricted diet and the action of a protein called Sirt3 affected the development of age-related hearing loss in mice. It found that mice that were capable of producing Sirt3 in response to having a calorie-restricted diet had slower development of age-related hearing loss than those unable to produce Sirt3.
This laboratory study gives us a new insight into how restricting calories may protect cells against some of the processes of ageing, through the role of Sirt3. Read more…
