Authors: Yu Y Abstract Stem cells are one kind of cells that have the potential of proliferation and differentiation. The human beings are originated from a totipotential stem cell-fertilized egg. After birth, the proliferation and differentiation of stem cells contribute to the development and maturation of individual tissues and organs. After maturation, aging is a phases of the life process, the stem cells within the individual's tissues ensure the metabolism of different cells and tissues, such as the hematopoietic stem cells in the bone marrow, which ensure there are still enough red blood cells (RBCs) being r...

Authors: Xie H, Zhao S, Liu S Abstract With the continuous development of stem cell research in recent years, it is realized that stem cell aging may be the core issue of organ aging. As an important approach and main content of regenerative medicine, the stem cell research brings great hope to overcome difficult diseases and improve the quality of life for human beings and become the key to solve this issue. Based on this research, the varying characteristics of stem cells in aging could be recognized; the role of stem cells in the organ aging and regeneration will be revealed; the function of stem cells will be c...

Authors: Yin Y, Wang Z Abstract Age and apolipoprotein E (ApoE) are the mightiest risk factors for dementia and cardiovascular diseases, but the underlying mechanisms remain unclear. In human, ApoE has three isoforms, ApoE2, ApoE3, and ApoE4, which are expressed by the polymorphic alleles: ɛ2, ɛ3, and ɛ4. Among the three polymorphic alleles, apoE ε4 is the most risk gene. ApoE is the main ligand for the low-density lipoprotein (LDL) receptor and the LDL receptor-related protein (LRP), functioning as the component of plasma lipoproteins in the transportation of lipids. Physiologically, ApoE is a multifunc...

Women, working families, disabled people and ethnic minorities are being penalised by unjust policies which undermine their financial independence and leave some destitute, says UNISON. The union will today (Saturday) call on the Labour Party to campaign for a fair social security system that reverses cuts to work allowances and scraps the current two-child limit on benefits, including Universal Credit. A UNISON motion to the party’s women’s conference, which is taking place in Liverpool, says measures are needed to reduce the burden faced by low-income households from property costs. These include security of ...
