Cell ageing and senescence
  1. Progerias
    1. Werner's syndrome
      1. Ataxia telangiectasia
      2. What changes?
        1. Expression of proteins and mRNA
          1. Nuclear and mitochondrial genomes
            1. MtDNA more exposed to damage: not complexed with histones, almost all is coding, repair not as efficient
              1. cytochrome oxidase is critically important
            2. Energy metabolism
              1. enlarged mitochondria, decline in membrane potential, increase in production of ROS
              2. Protein processing
                1. Glycation - assoc with diabetes and alzeimers
                  1. Protein cross-linking and advanced glycosylation end products (AGES)
                2. Accumulation of aggregated/damaged proteins and lipids
                  1. accumulation of misfolded proteins and peptides (amyloid fibrils/plaques) associated with disease
                    1. type II diabetes, alzheimers, parkinsons
                  2. Cessation of division of proliferative cells

                                                      1. Enzymes that convert FRs to less reactive or inactive forms
                                                        1. Table 18.2 Page 106

                                                                      1. Shortening of telomeres, DNA damage, decondensation of chromatin, overactivation of mitotic stimuli and activation of some oncogenes
                                                                        1. telomere shortening doesn't always occur
                                                                          1. Telomere shortening detected by ATM results in withdrawal from the cell cycle and possibly apoptosis (p53)
                                                                            1. Transfection with genes for telomerase can make a cell immortal

                                                                                1. may be "sentinels that respond to cellular stress - particularly OXIDATIVE STRESS
