The key to increased lifespan? Rubicon alters autophagy in animals during aging

Autophagy is an important biological recycling mechanism that influences the progression of aging in animals. Here, age-related changes in autophagy were studied in multiple model organisms. A team found that Rubicon suppression led to reduction of age-associated motor decline, as well as reduction of fibrosis, and that Rubicon could be an important new target for treatments designed to reduce the effects of aging in humans.
