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: Lifespan- and healthspan-extension therapy: Shikonin, isolated from zicao/purple groomwell, 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 Shikonin, by 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).
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, a pharmaceutical mixture encompossing Shikonin or its analogues, either alone or in combination with other drugs,“ may be used to extend the lifespan of an individual (fig.2). This study may also through light into how some of the marine organisms enjoy exceptional longevity in salty sea-water environment.
