As reported previously in HealthyLivinG, during the aging process communication between mitochondria and the nucleus, both within the cell but separated by membranes, degrades. The mitochondria depend upon instruction from the nucleus in order to maintain their optimal energy production. However, in aging, sirtulin-1 (SIRT-1) gene activity declines in relation to diminished production of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide or NAD; the buildup of chemicals that interferes with intracellular signaling increases. As a result, communication between nucleus and energy factories is impeded and the mitochondria die off.

A derivative of vitamin B3 reverses this aging process in old mice nearing the end of their lives and is nearing clinical trial stage, according to researchers. Two-year old mice given the molecular activator experienced a reversal of genetic aging indicators with energy and vitality levels equivalent to six-months old. Considering most laboratory mice rarely live past around two years and almost never over three, this is like taking a 60-year-old to their twenties, the researchers say. The supplement is called nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide or NAD and is available as a supplement called NAD+. Published in Cell, the molecule restored the energy producing factories of muscle cells called mitochondria when injected into mice. The researchers say the study has implications for reserving diseases of aging such as cancer, dementia and diabetes. Study coauthor Dr Nigel Turner, senior research fellow at the University of New South Wales, called the rate of age reversal upon injection “amazingly rapid.”

“We mapped the pathway to aging carefully, but it was a real surprise to see the markers of aging move back so quickly in just a week,” he said.

Dr Turner claims the cost of the chemical would run $50,000 a day for a human to use. However, Biotivia Labs claims to offer a pharmaceutical grade NAD to the public at a much lower price than the $50,000 per day estimate.

“We know that this cell communication breaks down in diseases such as dementia, cancer and type-two diabetes,” Dr Turner said. “This research focused on muscles, but it could benefit multiple organs and delay and prevent a lot of these diseases occurring. Whether that means we’ll all live to 150, I don’t know, but the important part is that we don’t spend the last 20 to 30 years of our lives in bad health.”

The experimental study focused on an area of cells called mitochondria, which produce energy in every human. Most genetic research focuses on nuclear DNA and that inherited from the mother and found in mitochondria has been less well studied, says Harvard University scientist David Sinclair. “We have two major chromosome sets in our body–the chromosomes that we all know about, we call it our genome. But there’s other DNA that we often don’t think about–the mitochondrial DNA that we get from our mothers. During aging these two genomes don’t talk to each other. We found that we could reverse that and get the communication going again and the animals went back to being young again.”
