Regulation of the one carbon folate cycle as a shared metabolic signature of longevity

"Regulation of the one carbon folate cycle as a shared metabolic signature of longevity"


I heard a fascinating talk today. It was Adam Antebe, Director at the Max Planck Institute for Biology of Ageing, Germany who was talking about "Convergent mechanisms of longevity" and how fascinating he was.


There seem's to be quite a few longevity mechanism converging around the folate cycle metabolism and methionine  restriction is one factor that might support longevity.

  • Thanks for posting. That looks like the basis to significant future advances.

    • Jack Black Yesterday I attended AARD virtually. ARDD 2021 ( thats where I heard Adam Antebe. 

      I think that they will post the 2021 presentations for future online viewing. (i have seen a few presentations of the 2020 session, so I hope they will make this years presentations public as well).  


      It was fascinating to hear about the convergance of several mechanisms of longevity. Converging around the folic acid cycle. it definitely looks like they have uncovered something that will attract much more research hoping to find meaningful interventions for longevity.
