Analysis of the Effects of Therapeutic Drugs on Telomere Length


Telomeres can be beneficially lengthened with medication. Telomere wear is strongly associated with the onset of age-related disease and death, and there is increasing interest in the specific effects of relevant therapeutic drugs on telomere length. To help researchers advance the development and application of telomere drugs, CD BioSciences provides in vitro studies of drugs to validate their effects on telomere length.

Our Analysis of the Effects of Therapeutic Drugs on Telomere Length

  • Assessing the effects of metformin on telomere length
    We employ advanced in vitro models to assess the influence of metformin on telomere maintenance. Through meticulous analysis, we elucidate the potential of metformin in preserving telomere integrity and its implications for aging-related conditions.
  • Analyzing the effects of rapamycin on telomere length
    Through our in vitro assays and analytical methodologies, we delve into the influence of rapamycin on telomere dynamics. Our comprehensive approach enables us to generate valuable data on the potential modulation of telomere length by rapamycin, shedding light on its role in cellular aging and longevity.
  • Evaluating the effects of NAD+ precursors on telomere length
    We evaluate the effect of NAD+ precursors such as nicotinamide riboside (NR) or nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) on telomere length. By studying pathways involved in NAD+ metabolism, DNA repair, and telomere maintenance, we reveal the molecular mechanisms underlying the effects of NAD+ precursors on telomere length.

Workflow for Analysis of the Effects of Therapeutic Drugs on Telomere Length

We focus on providing cost-effective, high-quality experimental research solutions for our customers, specializing in standard and custom in vitro assays that validate the effects of therapeutics on telomere length. We have a wide range of in vitro assays/techniques to assess the specific effects of drugs on telomere length and select specific techniques based on specific research objectives.

  • Building cellular models
    Our in vitro assay design uses isolated cellular components to monitor biochemical and functional responses to determine the specific mechanisms of action and effects of relevant therapeutic agents on telomere length.
  • Cell assays
    We have a variety of proprietary cell lines and models for cellular assays including simple cell proliferation and viability assays, oxidative stress and antioxidant assays, apoptosis and senescence assays, and cellular biochemical and functional assays.
  • Telomere length measurement
    We measure the telomere length telomere parameters such as relative telomere length as well as short telomere distribution, with each sample repeated three times.
  • Statistic analysis
    We fit univariate regression models to assess crude associations between telomere length and therapeutic drug factors, longitudinally examining between-group differences to systematically assess drug-specific associations.
