  • Dietary Restriction In Ageing Essay

    Topic: Molecular mechanism of dietary restriction in ageing Title: Dietary restriction and mTOR signalling pathway in lifespan extension Dietary restriction (DR), which is reduced intake of all dietary constituents except vitamins and minerals, was first shown to extend the lifespan of rats 80 years ago (McCay, 1930).

Restriction enzymes can recognize a specific sequence of nucleotide and hydrolyze the bond of the DNA backbone. Hence, the fragments from the same DNA source will also be the same if cleave by the same restriction enzymes. Restriction enzymes…
