Abstract

In humans the function of the anti-aging gene Sirt 1 is critical to the maintenance of other longevity and anti-aging genes involved with aging and lifespan. Appetite regulation is connected to Sirt 1 function with mitochondrial apoptosis and neurodegeneration linked to various chronic diseases. Food consumption in the cattle and livestock industry should be carefully controlled since Sirt 1 and its dysregulation may be more sensitive to mitochondrial apoptosis in animals with effects on neurodegeneration and synaptic plasticity that determines species longevity.
