Male hormone stimulates telomerase production
July 27 2016. The May 19, 2016 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine reported the outcome of a study conducted by the National Institutes of Health and researchers in Brazil that found an increase in telomerase in association with androgenic hormone treatment.
"One of the processes associated with aging is progressive shortening of telomeres, DNA-protecting structures at the ends of chromosomes, like the plastic tips on shoelaces," explained coauthor Rodrigo Calado, who is a professor at the University of São Paulo's Ribeirão Preto Medical School. "Each time a cell divides, its telomeres get shorter. Eventually, the cell can't replicate anymore and dies or becomes senescent. However, telomerase can keep the length of telomeres intact, even after cell division."
