The results of their research were published in the journal FASEB. The publication states that cells in the human body are renewed through the release from damaged mitochondria.
In the elderly, this process slows down, which leads to loss of muscle mass and the manifestation of excess weight. Scientists have developed a concept of action on special fluouroscence markers that study mitochondria and determine which ones are damaged. According to the researchers, this information will help to find ways of cell renewal through medication.
