Scientists have created a single protein that inhibits aging in fruitflies. The compound binds to receptors on cell membranes involved in aging and blocks them. Doing so extends a fruitflys life by a third with no apparent side effects. Why these receptors even exist and what they have to do with aging isnt known. But similar receptors exist in other animals, including humans. Learning more about them might one day extend human life as well.
