A research team from Mount Sinai, Harvard Medical School, and Children’s Hospital in Boston has determined the function of protein Sirtuin1 (SIRT1) in maintaining the regenerative ability of blood stem cells. The researchers found that young stem cells lacking SIRT1 exhibited a similar deficiency in rejuvenating blood as observed in older stem cells. These older, defunct blood stem cells are unable to refresh the body’s blood supply, resulting in vulnerability to age-related cancers and immune diseases.
With the discovery of SIRT1’s role in sustaining the regenerative ability of stem cells, researchers are exploring potential treatment options that entail increasing SIRT1 levels in the blood to mitigate age-related disease and degradation.
Due to their higher regenerative abilities, younger stem cells are preferred over older ones for medical therapies. One way to assure access to the enhanced regenerative abilities of your own stem cells is to preserve them while they are still young, so that they can be used later in life in emerging regenerative therapies. Today, preserving your own stem cells, also known as autologous stem cells, is simple and affordable for families.
