Aging is exacerbated by alterations of stem cell circadian rhythmTwo new studies refute the scientific dogma associating aging with the loss of stem cell circadian rhythm. The studies show that during aging, stem cells continue to show rhythmic activity but reprogram their circadian functions. The team also demonstrate that a low-calorie diet delays alterations in the rhythmic functions of stem cells and slows down ageing.Two new studies refute the scientific dogma associating aging with the loss of stem cell circadian rhythm.
