 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: A candy way to extend lifespan: Natural sweetener-based Lifespan extension therapy: D-Tagotose, a natural sweetener with low glycemic index,  increases life span via up-regulation of its target gene BubR1


What is known? 

Tomatidine has been shown to shown to function as anti-hyperglycemic agent. However, the exact mechanism of action is far from clear.


From research findings to therapeutic Opportunity: 

D-Tagotose, a stereoisomer of fructose, is found in fruits, cacao and milk products (fig.1).  It is 92% as sweet as sucrose, but only with 38% of calories of sucrose.

This study suggests, for the first time, that D-Tagotoseby 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, pharmacological formulations encompassing D-Tagotose or its analogues, either alone or in combination with other drugs,may be used to extend the lifespan of an individual (fig. 1).
