The study of healthy human aging is important for shedding light on the molecular mechanisms behind aging to promote well-being and to possibly predict and/or avoid the development of age-related disorders such as atherosclerosis and diabetes. Herein, we have employed an untargeted mass spectrometry-based approach to study age-related protein changes in a healthy Sicilian plasma cohort including long-lived individuals. This approach confirmed some of the previously known proteins correlated with age including fibulin-1, dystroglycan, and gamma-glutamyl hydrolase. Furthermore, our findings include novel proteins that correlate with age and/or with location and uric acid, which could represent a unique signature for healthy aging.
