A BREAKTHROUGH by British scientists could slow down or even stop the ageing process, it has been revealed.
Boffins at Nottingham University have found a specific protein inside a certain part of cells which seems to be the cause of ageing.
The discovery of the protein, called carbonic anhydrase, could lead to the development of new medicines to slow the effects of ageing – or even halt the progression of debilitating conditions such as dementia.
During the study, tests showed higher levels of carbonic anhydrase in the brain and muscle cells of older mice.
Crucially, there was also larger amounts of it in young mice who already had some brain degeneration.
