Beta2-adrenergic receptor gene polymorphisms as systemic determinants of healthy aging in an evolutionary context.
(Mech Ageing Dev, 2010-05)
The Gln(27)Glu polymorphism but not the Arg(16)Gly polymorphism of the beta2-adrenergic receptor (ADRB2) gene appears to be associated with a broad range of aging-associated phenotypes, including cancers at different sites, ...
Trade-offs in the effects of the apolipoprotein E polymorphism on risks of diseases of the heart, cancer, and neurodegenerative disorders: insights on mechanisms from the Long Life Family Study.
(Rejuvenation Res, 2015-04)
The lack of evolutionary established mechanisms linking genes to age-related traits makes the problem of genetic susceptibility to health span inherently complex. One complicating factor is genetic trade-off. Here we focused ...
Health and function of participants in the Long Life Family Study: A comparison with other cohorts.
(Aging (Albany NY), 2011-01)
Individuals from families recruited for the Long Life Family Study (LLFS) (n= 4559) were examined and compared to individuals from other cohorts to determine whether the recruitment targeting longevity resulted in a cohort ...
Biogenetic mechanisms predisposing to complex phenotypes in parents may function differently in their children.
(J Gerontol A Biol Sci Med Sci, 2013-07)
This study focuses on the participants of the Long Life Family Study to elucidate whether biogenetic mechanisms underlying relationships among heritable complex phenotypes in parents function in the same way for the same ...
Do gender, disability, and morbidity affect aging rate in the LLFS? Application of indices of cumulative deficits.
(Mech Ageing Dev, 2011-04)
We used an approach of cumulative deficits to evaluate the rate of aging in 4954 participants of the Long-Life Family Study (LLFS) recruited in the U.S. (Boston, New York, and Pittsburgh) and Denmark. We used an array of ...
Morbidity risks among older adults with pre-existing age-related diseases.
(Exp Gerontol, 2013-12)
Multi-morbidity is common among older adults; however, for many aging-related diseases there is no information for U.S. elderly population on how earlier-manifested disease affects the risk of another disease manifested ...
