Oxidized proteins as well as proteins modified by the lipid peroxidation product 4-hydroxy-2-nonenal (HNE) and by glycation (AGE) have been shown to accumulate with aging in vivo and during replicative senescence in vitro. To better understand the mechanisms by which these damaged proteins build up and potentially affect cellular function during replicative(More)
Protein damage mediated by oxidation, protein adducts formation with advanced glycated end products and with products of lipid peroxidation, has been implicated during aging and age-related diseases, such as neurodegenerative diseases. Increased protein modification has also been described upon replicative senescence of human fibroblasts, a valid model for(More)
The age-related accumulation of oxidized proteins is dependent on the balance between the generation of oxidatively modified proteins and their elimination by protein degradation and repair systems. Previous studies have demonstrated that replicative senescence represents a valid model of in vitro aging and that senescent cells do accumulate oxidized(More)
