Mechanisms Linking Aging, Diseases and Biological Age Estimation (Hardcover)
about this item
This book covers the main intracellular causes of aging. From aspartic acid racemization to mitochondrial DNA mutations, this book reviews how these processes play a key role, not only on aging, but also in the development of aging-related and non-related diseases. Each chapter includes a new perspective -- the determination of the age. Some of these aging processes are currently used by forensic scientists to estimate the age at death, giving a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary approach to aging research.
