Significance of the study:

It has been shown earlier that antagonizing angiotensin II type I receptor (AT1R) expression may prolong mammalian life span. Further, it has been shown that disruption of AT1R (AGTR1) gene results in marked prolongation of mammalian lifespan. 


From research findings to therapeutic opportunity

This study suggests, for the first time, that Casticin, by increasing the expression of its target gene,  it may decrease the expression of AT1R.

And, thereby, it may (1) decrease blood pressure; (2) decrease blood sugar levels; (3) decelerate ageing process; and (4) extend the lifespan of an individual. Thus, pharmacological formulations encompassing “Casticin or its analogues or Casticin in combination with other natural products” may be used to extend the lifespan of an individual (Figure 1).
