Telomere theory of aging
|Location of telomere|
Cell divisionAll the living organisms that start their life with a single cell.For growth and reproduction, the cell divion is necessary,each parent cell is divides in to two and later, these cells will divide again and this process will continue. There are two types of cell divisions occurs in our body, mitosis and meiosis.The mitosis is the common type which is the process of making new cells in our body,the other one meiosis which makes egg cells and sperm cells.The mitosis cell division is a very critical process, during this the parent cell split in to two identical daughter cells and this process is controlled by a number of genes,eventhough he length of telomeres decreased after each cell division.The other one the meiosis cell division reduces chromasome number by half( 46 to 23),unlike mitosis the end product of meiosis is four daughter cells with 23 chromosomes) these daughter cells should be sperm cells or egg cells.
Medicine available to increase life span
many medicine are available at online for altering telomere's length. For example, TA65®. This is a patented natural herbal product.The company Claims "this compound can help to maintain the length of telomers by activating telomerase enzyme.It can slow down and possibly,reverse aging". Another one human telomerase reverse transcriptase(hTERT) which is used to diminish telomer's length,you may wonder why should one diminishes telomer's length?, well this is an effective medicicine fort cancer,especially for tumors,you know cancer cells are able to produce excess telomerase so the length of telomere never reduced,they are immortal.hTERT used to diminish telomer's length, and therefore the cells become inactive. This type of medicines manufactured a number of companies in different names and different forms.
Telomere theory of aging is a most popular theory of aging.It is proved that after each and every cell division the length of telomere decreases,it is also noted that telomere shortening is different for every one,when we try to measure,for some people you can see the difference in 3 years and some others it can notice in 5 years depend on health status,stress reduction and healthy habits can help to slow the telomere shortening.
