Obesity and aging have divergent genomic fingerprints

Aging is associated with increased visceral fat, and recent studies suggested that in turn, visceral fat could influence longevity. We therefore tested whether obesity could be a condition of premature aging. Whole-genome microarray analysis of gene expression between obese mice, aged mice and their respective controls, revealed that long-term adaptations in gene expression in visceral fat upon aging are different from those occurring during fat accretion in young adult animals, suggesting specific, divergent and non overlapping pathways of regulation.

Title: Influence of
the placebo effect on oxidative stress in healthy older adults of Mexico
City Manuscript Number: FAMPR-218-07 Submission Date: 13-Aug-2007
Author(s): RETANA-UGALDE, RAQUEL; CASANUEVA, ESTHER; ALTAMIRANO-LOZANO, MARIO; GONZÁLEZ-TORRES, CRISTINA; VARGAS-GUADARRAMA, LUIS ALBERTO; MENDOZA-NÚÑEZ, VÍCTOR MANUEL
The study carried out a double-blind controlled clinical assay with the participation of 75 healthy older adults residents for the past 10 years of Mexico City. Results. Placebo Group subjects showed a statistically significant decreased in LPO concentration, likewise than Treatment Group that received antioxidant therapy, both in comparison with Control Group. (The paper was rejected publication).
