A new study has demonstrated that a factor in the cells of naked mole rats protect and alter the activity of the proteasome, a garbage disposer for damaged and obsolete proteins.
The naked mole has been named the Vertebrate of the Year by Science Magazine, owing to the research done by University of Rochester biologists Vera Gorbunova and Andrei Seluanov.
Naked mole rats could hold the secret to humans one day living for 200 years, scientists believe.
A team of researchers in Israel and the US is working to uncover the secret to the naked mole rats` long lifespan.
