Inhibition of PDK1 Can Reverse Cell Aging

Inhibition of PDK1 Can Reverse Cell Aging

Recent studies showed that cellular senescence, previously considered an irreversible biological phenomenon, may represent a reversible state, but the mechanism for the reversion is not well elucidated. Last month, Research findings by a Korean team provide insight into the complex mechanism of cellular senescence and present a potential therapeutic strategy for reducing age-related diseases associated with the accumulation of senescent cells.

To identify targets the inhibition of which would convert senescent cells into quiescent cells, the researchers constructed a molecular regulatory network model of cellular senescence. From ensemble analysis of network models, they identified 3-phosphoinositide–dependent protein kinase 1 (PDK1) as a promising target for inhibitors to convert the senescent state to the quiescent state. The researchers validated this prediction in experiments with human dermal fibroblasts, which showed that PDK1 inhibition eradicates senescence hallmarks by suppressing both nuclear factor κB and mTOR signaling through the inactivation of a positive feedback loop composed of PDK1, AKT, IKBKB, and PTEN, resulting in restored skin regeneration capacity. The findings were published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

PDPK1 is a master kinase, which is crucial for the activation of AKT/PKB and many other AGC kinases including PKC, S6K, SGK. An important role for PDPK1 is in the signaling pathways activated by several growth factors and hormones including insulin signaling.

"Our research opens the door for a new generation that perceives aging as a reversible biological phenomenon," says Professor Kwang-Hyun Cho of the Department of Bio and Brain Engineering at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), who led the research with colleagues from KAIST and Amorepacific Corporation in Korea. The scientists recommend investigations are next done in organs and organisms to determine the full effect of PDK1 inhibition. Since the gene that codes for PDK1 is overexpressed in some cancers, the scientists expect that inhibiting it will have both anti-aging and anti-cancer effects.

"The study showed the potential for reverse the aging process, which has been recognized as an irreversible phenomenon in life," Professor Cho said. "This research marked the beginning of a new era that can prevent diseases related to aging and prolong life span."

Thanks for share this helpful information. IDE's are great for simple software development products such as web applications and are extremely beneficial when the software development by  https://mlsdev.com may not require a large number of complex steps. However, it is often considered a weaker strategy than the other strategies because it tends to require large amounts of programming knowledge to master. Also, many software development products require a large amount of modification after they have been released. Though it is possible to create custom software development products using an IDE, this often requires a significant level of programming knowledge. Many software development companies prefer to use CDI for software development products because it allows them to release the software without requiring the software developer to rewrite most of the software. CDI also allows the company to make technical changes to the software without having to re-write all of the software products.

That's great. I saw about that on youtube. Once I was just confused about CH4 but this forum and marketertamal helped me a lot to research my stuff.
Thanks for sharing nice information with us. i like your post and all you share with us is up-to-date and quite informative, I would like to bookmark the page so I can come here again to read you, as you have done a wonderful job.

Awesome! We also have students from Atlanta doing the same research. An important role for PDPK1 is in the signaling pathways activated by several growth factors and hormones including insulin signaling. Keep it up!
