Keeping the Rhythm while Changing the Lyrics: Circadian Biology in Aging

Cell. 2017 Aug 10;170(4):599-600. doi: 10.1016/j.cell.2017.07.039.


Aging and circadian rhythms have been linked for decades, but their molecular interplay has remained obscure. Sato et al. and Solanas et al. now reveal that, while core clock components remain nearly unaltered, aging is associated with tissue-specific rewiring, which can be prevented by calorie restriction.
