Anatomy & Physiology of Aging

  • Aging Under the Microscope: Biochemistry and Aging - The biochemistry of aging is a rich territory with an expanding frontier. (US National Institute on Aging) [PDF File].

  • Aging Under the Microscope: Future of Aging - The aging boom is upon us. Life expectancy nearly doubled in the 20th century. Since 1900, the number of Americans age 65 and older has increased 10-fold. (US National Institute on Aging) [PDF File]

  • Aging Under the Microscope: Physiologic Clues - We don’t know very much about the few men and women who have lived to 115 years of age or more, but we can assume that they eluded the diseases that kill many people in their 70s and 80s. (National Institute on Aging) [PDF File]

  • Aging Under the Microscope: Posing Questions, Finding Answers - Theories of aging fall into two groups. The programmed theories hold that aging follows a biological timetable, perhaps a continuation of the one that regulates childhood growth and development. The damage or error theories emphasize environmental assaults to our systems that gradually cause things to go wrong. Many of the theories of aging are not mutually exclusive. (National Institute on Aging) [PDF File]

  • Apoptosis - For every cell, there is a time to live and a time to die. There are two ways in which cells die: They are killed by injurious agents. They are induced to commit suicide. (John W. Kimball's Biology Pages)

  • CellDeath.de - CellDeath.de takes effort to present solid facts but cannot garantuee correctness of all the content presented. CellDeath.de intends to be a forum for apoptosis-related subjects.
