The size of the nucleolus (pink) in animal cell nuclei (blue) correlates with longevity.

Prof. Adam Antebi in an interview with the New York Times.

In response to a recently published review in Trends in Cell Biology about the nucleolus` role in ageing, the New York times interviewed Prof. Adam Antebi from the Max Planck Institute for Biology of Ageing (go to article). He explained the various links of nucleolar function with longevity and the surprising finding from his lab that animals with smaller nucleoli tend to live longer (press release).
