Abstract

The naked mole-rat (Heterocephalus glaber) is an eusocial rodent living underground, known for its unusually high life expectancy. Biochemical markers of age associated diseases (cancer, neurodegenerative diseases) in naked mole-rat are less pronounced than in other laboratory rodents. The immune system is involved in the aging and carcinogenesis regulation, however, the immune system in the naked mole-rats is yet not investigated well. We found that the immune system of naked mole-rats has structural diff erences compared to a mouse immune system: a smaller number of the bone marrow cells and splenocytes, the small size of the lymphoid follicles of the spleen and lymph nodes, a higher proportion of myeloid cells in the periphery. Taken together, these data provide a basis for studying the fundamental immunity patterns of the naked mole rat, and their contribution to the extraordinary longevity.
