Authors: Qian M, Liu B Abstract The aging population represents a significant worldwide socioeconomic challenge. Aging is an inevitable and multifactorial biological process and primary risk factor for most age-related diseases, such as cardiovascular diseases, cancers, type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), and neurodegenerative diseases. Pharmacological interventions targeting aging appear to be a more effective approach in preventing age-related disorders compared with the treatments targeted to specific disease. In this chapter, we focus on the latest findings on molecular compounds that mimic caloric restriction (CR...
Authors: Yang D, Yang K, Yang M Abstract Circular RNAs (circRNAs) are widely present and participate in a variety of biological regulatory activities as a novel type of endogenous noncoding RNA molecule. With advances in RNA structure and function analysis, it was found that circRNAs are present in a myriad of life processes and longevity in model organisms such as mice, flies, and worms. Accumulating evidence indicates the involvement of circRNAs in regulation of age-related pathologies such as cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disorders, and neurodegenerative disease, suggesting that circRNAs may have great potent...
