250 views | Jun 02 2020

Sushil K Jaiswal et al. found that the multiple roles of p53 in cell cycle regulation and apoptosis were first acquired during pluripotent stem cell differentiation. [Read the Full Post]

Rapamycin: An InhibiTOR of Aging Emerges From the Soil of Easter Island

0 views | May 24 2020

Sebastian I Arriola Apelo et al. discussed recent advances in understanding the molecular and physiological effects of rapamycin treatment, and they discussed how the use of alternative rapamycin treatment regimens or rapamycin analogs had the potential to mitigate the deleterious side effects of rapamycin treatment by more specifically targeting mTORC1.
