For one-semester introductory-level courses in the Biology of Human Aging, for non-majors. A general — yet substantive — overview of the aging process, this text explores age-related changes and age-related dysfunctions common to each body system. Scientific terminology is kept to a minimum. Telomeres with G-rich repetitive DNA and particular proteins as special heterochromatin structures at the termini of eukaryotic chromosomes are tightly maintained to safeguard genetic integrity and functionality. Telomerase as a specialized reverse transcriptase uses its intrinsic RNA template to lengthen telomeric G-rich strand in yeast and human cells. Cells sense Cited by: 8.

Interest in relationship between diet and ageing is growing. Research has shown that dietary calorie restriction and some antioxidants extend lifespan in various ageing models. On the one hand, oxygen is essential to aerobic organisms because it is a final electron acceptor in mitochondria. On the other hand, oxygen is harmful because it can continuously generate Cited by: Learn biology of aging with free interactive flashcards.

It is a comprehensive synthesis and review of the latest and most important advances and themes in modern biogerontology, and focuses on the trend of ‘big data’ approaches in the biological sciences, presenting. Entropy always wins. Each multicellular organism, using energy from the sun, is able to develop and maintain its identity for only so long.

Then deterioration prevails over synthesis, and the organism ages. Aging can be defined as the time-related deterioration of the physiological functions necessary for survival and fertility. The characteristics of aging—as distinguished Cited by: Biology of Aging, Second Edition presents the biological principles that have led to a new understanding of the causes of aging and describes how these basic principles help one to understand the human experience of biological aging, longevity, and age-related disease.

Intended for undergraduate biology students, it describes how the rate of biological aging is 5/5(1). Aging is accompanied by gradual changes in most body systems. Research on the biology of aging focuses on understanding the cellular and molecular processes underlying these changes as well as those accompanying the onset of age-related diseases.

As scientists learn more about these processes, experiments can be designed to better understand when and how. Freinkel and Woodley's book, with a similar emphasis on core knowledge, would be an excellent companion to the course.

This volume is part of The Handbooks of Aging series, which also includes The Handbook of the Psychology of Aging and The Handbook of Aging and the Social Sciences.

The book is organized into two parts. This book will provide the reader with a state of the art overview of the subcellular aging field. This book will be published in cooperation with a second volume that will discuss the translation of the cell biology of aging to a more clinical setting and it is hoped that the combination of these two volumes will bring a deeper understanding.

Third Edition. Robert Arking. Robert Arking's Biology of Aging is an introductory text to the biology of aging which gives advanced undergraduate and graduate students a thorough review of the entire field.

The mass of data related to aging is summarized into fifteen focused chapters, each dealing with some particular. This book presents a completely novel approach to the understanding of ageing, which many believe is an unsolved problem in biology. It explains why ageing exists in animals, and reviews our understanding of it at the biological level.

This includes a discussion of the origins and evolution of ageing. Molecular and Cellular Biology of Aging The approach in generating this comprehensive textbook has been to compare aging at the cellular and microbiological levels across multiple forms of life.

It is now clear that the vast majority of living organisms display some aspects of aging, many of which appear to be conserved throughout evolution. The processes that control senescence have been the subject of more then a century of serious biological research.

Two institutions closely involved in this programme, the Society for the Study of Human Biology and the British Society for Research in Ageing, held a joint symposium in to consider human ageing and longevity from an interdisciplinary point of view.

The biology of ageing Ð a primer 25 maintenance and reproduction, such that the body declines so that reproductive capacity can be maintained (Kirkwood, ). Arguably, the Þrst model of the evolution of ageing was put forward by Peter Medawar more than half a century after WeismannÕs work.

At the molecular and cellular levels human ageing is characterized by the accumulation of unrepaired random damage, and an accompanying loss of function.

A major source of damage is oxidative stress caused by the generation of reactive oxygen species as a by-product of respiration. DNA and proteins are both susceptible to damage but whereas DNA damage. Infoaging's Biology Center is designed to bring you the latest information on the biological causes of human aging.
