 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:  Bonding your way to extend your lifespan and healthspan: Oxytocin,  a peptide hormone and neuropeptide known to play a role in empathy, generosity, child birth and so on, may increase life span, via up-regulation of its target gene BubR1 and others


From research findings to Therapeutic Opportunity: 

This study suggests, for the first time, that Oxytocinby increasing the expression of its target gene, it may: (a) increase the expression of BuBR1; (b) decrease the expression of p70 S6 Kinase; and (c) regulate the expression of a number of longevity-promoting molecules (fig. 1).

Figure 1. Oxytocin may extend  mammalian life span via up regulation of BuBR1 and down regulation of p70 S6 Kinase

Figure 2. Bonding hormone Oxytocin as a longevity-promoting agent.   It  functions as a longevity-promoter by increasing the expression of BuBR1 and other longevity-promoting genes (fig 1).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Thereby, it may: (1) increase insulin sensitivity; (2) attenuate cognitive impairment; (3) delay diseases of aging; (4) slow down cardiac aging; (5) promote resistance to bone, immune and motor dysfunction; (6) promote tissue rejuvenation; and (7) prolong median life span. Thus, pharmacological formulations encompassing “Oxytocin or its analogues, either alone or in combination with other drugs, may be used to extend the lifespan of an individual (fig.2).
