Biological Role of Anti-Aging Protein Klotho

Biological Role of Anti-Aging Protein Klotho

Klotho is an anti-aging protein that is mostly detected in the kidney and brain. It was first identified in mice as an aging suppressor. Overexpression of this gene extends one’s lifespan, while a deficiency can lead to aging faster or even early death. This...

Klotho the Anti-Aging Gene

The Klotho (KL) gene was identified as an anti-aging gene and has produced insights into how the aging process works. Researchers have uncovered several functions of Klotho, but future research should investigate the location of Klotho receptors and downstream...

Klotho Anti-Aging Research Reveals Treatment Potential

Aging brings all sorts of problems no matter how well people take care of their bodies. Part of the reason why is the decline of the Klotho gene present in our bodies with every year that passes. A primary concern arising includes how declines of Klothos have on the...
