  1. Clotho, Klothonoun

    the Greek goddess of fate who spins the thread of life


  1. Klotho

    Klotho is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the KL gene. This gene encodes a type-I membrane protein that is related to β-glucuronidases. Reduced production of this protein has been observed in patients with chronic renal failure, and this may be one of the factors underlying the degenerative processes seen in CRF. Also, mutations within this protein have been associated with ageing and bone loss. Transgenic mice that overexpress Klotho live longer than wild-type mice.
