Mitochondria shown to trigger cell ageing
An international team of scientists has for the first time shown that mitochondria, the batteries of the cells, are essential for ageing. In a study, published today in the EMBO Journal and led by Dr Joćo Passos at Newcastle University, they found that when mitochondria were eliminated from ageing cells they became much more similar to younger cells. This experiment was able for the first time to conclusively prove that mitochondria are major triggers of cell ageing. This brings scientists a step closer to developing therapies to counteract the ageing of cells, by targeting mitochondria.
