Laminar Shear stress-based Lifespan extension therapy: Laminar Shear stress prolongs mammalian life span via down regulation of angiotensin II type I receptor (AT1R), 9/May/2017, 8.53 am

Natural product-derived (exercise mementics) therapy for Metabolic disease: Arctigenin, isolated from Greater Burdock (Arctium lappa), and Saussurea heromalla, increases PPARδ levels, inhibits glucose catabolism, preserves glucose levels, stimulates FA catabolism, delays the onset of hypoglycemia and boosts endurance exersize via down regulation of its target gene, 9/May/2017, 8.50 am

Natural product-derived Life-extension therapy: Ampelopsin [AMP; also called dihydromyricetin (DHM)], a flavonoid mainly found in Ampelopsis grossedentata (commonly known as Mayeam), inhibits the expression of Ribosomal protein S6 kinase 1 (p70S6 Kinase) and extends mammalian life span, 9/May/2017, 8.54 am

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 Laminar Shear stress, by increasing the expression of its target genes,  it may decrease the expression of AT1R.

Figure1. Mechanistic insights into how Laminar Shear Stress based therapy functions as a longevity-promoter. Laminar Shear Stress, by increasing the expression of its downstream target genes, down regulates A1TR expression and promotes mammalian longevity.

And, thereby, it may: (1) decrease blood pressure; (2) decrease blood sugar levels; (3) inhibit pulmonary fibrosis; (4) enhance bacterial immunity; (5) inhibit myocardial infarction; (6) increase telomerase expression, and decelerate ageing process; and (4) extend the lifespan of an individual.

Thus, physicians may consider encouraging their patients to undergo Laminar shear stress therapy, at regular intervals,  to lead a healthy and long-life.  Taken together, Laminar shear stress therapy may be used to extend the lifespan of an individual (Figure 1)
