American neuroscientists have discovered that the proteins contained in cord blood man, is a means of rejuvenation for older mice. A study published in the journal Nature, and briefly about it, reports Stanford University (USA).
Scientists have discovered that the endogenous metalloproteinase inhibitor TIMP2 (tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases 2) — a protein found in cord blood plasma of a person, improves cognitive properties in older mice.
This convinced after rodents have successfully passed tests for memory, learning and plasticity of the brain (the ability to adapt to new information), for example, the Barnes maze. Tests were preceded by a course of injections of cord blood plasma containing TIMP2.
Protein, as the authors suggest, contributed to the resumption of normal functioning hippocampus. Scientists believe that this protein could be the basis for the development of drugs that slow the deterioration in cognitive properties of the brain of older people.
