A recent study from the Institute of Healthy Ageing, Centre for Diabetes and Endocrinology, Department of Medicine, University College London, London, UK shows that “Ribosomal protein S6 kinase 1 signaling regulates mammalian life span.” This study was published in the 2 October 2009 issue of the Journal “Science” (I.F: 31.477by Prof Dominic J. Withers, Dr. Selman C and others.

On the foundation of this interesting finding, Dr L Boominathan PhD, Director-cum-chief Scientist of GBMDreports that: Small RNAs add more years into your life: MiRNA-34 inhibits the expression of Ribosomal protein S6 kinase 1 (p70S6 Kinase) and extends mammalian life span via down regulation of its target gene.

Significance: This study suggests an MiRNA-based Life-span extension therapy. MiRNA-34, by suppressing the expression of its target gene, it may decrease the expression of Ribosomal protein S6 kinase 1 (p70S6 Kinase). Thereby, it may promote (1) resistance to bone, immune, and motor dysfunction; and (2) insulin sensitivity.  Thus, pharmacological formulations encompassing MiRNA-34 activators may be used to extend the life span of an individual.
