Benefits of Stem Cell Storage

The clinical use of a patient's own stem cells for the treatment of age-related disease is expanding. Furthermore, young stem cell treatments in animals suggest that they have the potential to increase healthspan, and possibly even lifespan. However, as we age, the number and quality of our stem cells diminish. Storing your own young stem cells today for future reintroduction may help you live a healthier, longer life.

 

 

How Do Stem Cells Age?

Like the car you drive, your stem cells accumulate wear and tear over time. Storing your young stem cells now can ensure they remain undamaged even as the years pass.

DNA Damage

Each time a stem cell divides, DNA may be damaged as it is replicated and split between the two new cells. Older stem cells have not only gone through more divisions, but they produce less helicase proteins that protect DNA from damage during the replication process.


Mitochondrial Damage

Mitochondria produce ATP, which is used by the cell for energy. However, the process of producing ATP involves reactive oxygen species, that damage the mitochondria over time. Damaged mitochondria produce less ATP, and provide less energy to older stem cells.


Telomere Shortening

The ends of DNA are capped with repeating regions called telomeres that protect the coding region of DNA from damage during division. Over time, the telomeres of stem cells grow shorter, and as a result, the risk of DNA damage with each cell division grows.


Senescence

In response to accumulating damage to their DNA and organelles, stem cells produce tumor suppressor proteins that instruct the cell to cease dividing. This important safety mechanism, which prevents stem cells from becoming tumors, leads to the loss of stem cells with age.
