Yamanaka factor, the key to reversing aging: science

Thanks to Yamanaka factor The Aging It is one of the processes of nature that science has achieved keel over, These elements showed a positive effect on a group of rats that were tested at the Wyss Institute affiliated with Harvard University in the United States, but what are these strange components that can prolong the life of humans and animals?

Recently, at we explained to you that a group of geneticists led by David Sinclair injected four yemanka factor (OCT4, SOX2, KLF4 and OSK) in elderly rodents, resulting in a 109% extension of their remaining lives; Not only this, it was also shown that animals with visual loss (a result of the passage of time) regained their visual acuity and a certain mental agility or intelligence.

With “pears and apples” we explain whether Yamanaka factor

To answer as clearly as possible, we contacted Aline Ramos, a family therapist at the Mexican Social Security Institute (IMSS), who explained to us the study conducted by Sinclair and Harvard University. he explained to us that yemanka factor They are elements that, when inserted into a cell, “instruct” the genetic material to be able to perform certain functions.

“Our cells are of a certain age, and by introducing OCT4, SOX2, KLF4 and OSK subsets, they become pluripotent, so they can reproduce and they can be assigned certain functions. It’s almost an embryonic cell; say This implies that it will be practically new and ready to perform any task assigned to it.

The health professional explained that this discovery represents huge possibilities for the treatment of various conditions such as:

  • diabetes
  • liver failure
  • glaucoma blindness
  • cancer

“If a patient needs a kidney transplant but there is no donor, they can be injected yemanka factor and generate hepatocytes to reverse liver and kidney damage.”

Risks of “Rejuvenation”

In the study released by the Wyss Institute, it is stated that not all OCT4, SOX2, KLF4 and OSK subsets were inserted into the mice used for the test to restore their vision; Only three could be administered, as he found that one of them could induce a tumor in the animals.

“The risk is that by reversing Aging It is that the cells become so primitive that they have no specific function, giving rise to a tumor.

Will aging in humans soon be reversed?

David Sinclair’s studies are still in the animal testing phase, and there has been no talk of its initial application in humans as its risks are still being assessed, so we will have to wait to see its effects in humans.
