Reviewing the Potential for Klotho as a Basis for Therapy – Fight Aging!

Klotho is one of the few robustly longevity-associated genes discovered over the past few decades. Increased levels of the circulating α-klotho protein slows aging in mice and is associated with better late life health in humans. Additionally, more of this α-klotho appears to slow cognitive aging and also boost … Read more

Klotho Levels Decline with Age, But Are Unaffected by Physical Fitness at a Given Age – Fight Aging!

Klotho is a longevity-associated gene. Klotho functions within the cell, but a portion of the full protein is also released into the bloodstream. In humans, higher levels of circulating klotho correlate with lower incidence of age-related disease and mortality. In mice, interventions such as gene therapies that increase klotho … Read more

Klotho as a Biomarker of the Influence of Lifestyle Choice on Health – Fight Aging!

Klotho is a longevity-associated protein that operates both within the cell and also as a circulating signal protein. It is longevity-associated in the sense that upregulation increases life span and downregulation reduces life span in mice, but also in the sense that measured klotho levels correlate with health and … Read more
