What they say: Introduction:
A recent study from the Department of Genetics, Paul F. Glenn Laboratories for the Biological Mechanisms of Aging Harvard Medical School, Boston,USA; and Department of Pharmacology, School of Medicine, The University of New South Wales, Australia shows that Sirtuin-2 induces the checkpoint kinase BubR1 to increase lifespan. This study was published in the 1 July 2014 issue of the journal “EMBO” by Prof Sinclair, North BJ, and others.
What we say:
On the foundation of this interesting finding, Dr L Boominathan PhD, Director-cum-chief Scientist of GBMD, reports that: Natural product-derived Lifespan extension therapy: 2,4,5-trihydroxybenzaldehyde (TDB), found in Geum japonicum and Polygonum cuspidatum (PC), also known as Japanese knotweed, increases life span via up-regulation of its target gene BubR1.
What is known?
I have recently shown that 2,4,5-trihydroxybenzaldehyde (TDB): (1) increases the expression of ERBB2/Her2 and promotes dedifferentiation of cardiomyocytes; and (2) decreases age-associated weight gain, augments energy metabolism, improves physical activity and insulin sensitivity, promotes healthy lipid profile, and improves eye function
From Research Findings to Therapeutic Opportunity:
This study suggests a natural product-based life extension therapy. 2,4,5-trihydroxybenzaldehyde (TDB), by increasing the expression of its target gene, it may increase the expression of BuBR1.
Thereby, it may: (1) delay diseases of aging; (2) slow down aging; and (3) prolong median life span. Thus, pharmacological formulations encompassing “2,4,5-trihydroxybenzaldehyde (TDB) or TDB plus any of the known longevity promoting drug (s)” may be used to extend the lifespan of an individual.
