Losing the Fat May Be Key to Longer Life, 3 June 2004 [cached]
Dr. Heidi A. Tissenbaum, a gene expert at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, said this finding may be the mechanism that explains why calorie restriction works to extend life.
The finding is suggestive, but not conclusive, she added."This could be one way SIR2 functions in calorie restriction, to extend lifespan," Tissenbaum said.
The broad implications could be new drug targets for treating human obesity and type 2 diabetes, she noted.
It may also lead to a new diet pill, she said."The two things that work all the time are diet and exercise.I don't think that we will ever be able to take a pill and eat whatever we want," Tissenbaum said.
In terms of longevity, Tissenbaum said it's unclear how these genes act in later life.
"We don't know when these genes are active in the adult lifespan.We know how they act in the cell, but we don't know, until we have the data in mice and humans, that if you change one thing you can extend lifespan," Tissenbaum said.
