Nice quote on gene expression and calorie restriction

 "Aging was accompanied by changes in gene expression associated with increased inflammation, cellular stress, and fibrosis, and reduced capacity for apoptosis, xenobiotic metabolism, normal cell-cycling, and DNA replication. LT-CR and just 4 weeks of ST-CR reversed the majority of these changes."-link

Effects seen in liver of rodents, reversal of most age related changes in gene expression, if I'm not mistaken.
LTCR long term calorie restriction
STCR short term calorie restriction
