Several animal species are considered to exhibit what is called negligible senescence, i.e. they do not show signs of functional decline or any increase of mortality with age. Recent studies in naked mole rat and long-lived sea urchins showed that these species do not alter their gene-expression profiles with age as much as other organisms do. This is(More)
Although accumulation of molecular damage is suggested to be an important molecular mechanism of aging, a quantitative link between the dynamics of damage accumulation and mortality of species has so far remained elusive. To address this question, we examine stability properties of a generic gene regulatory network (GRN) and demonstrate that many(More)
We report the development of a new, fast, surface-based method for numerical calculations of the solvation energy of biomolecules with a large number of charged groups. The procedure scales linearly with the system size, both in time and memory requirements, produces explicit values for the reaction field potential and stable values of the polar energy(More)
We analyze deciencies of commonly used Coulomb approximations in Generalized Born solvation energy calculation models and report a development of a new fast surface-based method (FSBE) for numerical calculations of the solvation energy of biomolecules with charged groups. The procedure is only a few percents wrong for molecular congurations of arbitrary(More)
