Ageing as a phenomenon, and the possibilities of postpon-ing, reversing or abolishing it, have fascinated humans for avery long time as both mythology and history testify (Joshi2005). In the past couple of centuries, scientists proposed anumber of ageing theories, but none of them was completelysatisfactory. Current theories regarding proximal causes ofageing can be classified into two major categories: theo-ries invoking a program directing ageing and stochastic the-ories. Programmed ageing… 
Evolutionary genetic bases of longevity and senescence.

TLDR
It is suggested that synergistic and cascading effects of cis-ruptive mechanisms in the genome, and epigenetic disruptive processes in relation to environmental factors may lead to sequential slippage in the G-E-P space.
Biogerontology in Serbia
TLDR
The recent work of Serbian investigators suggest some new evidence that aging process influences the hormone signaling, immunological response, cholesterol metabolism and oxidative processes.
Old age as a privilege of the "selfish ones".
TLDR
It is legitimate to pose a question of whether long-lived individuals may be those with «selfish» genes and more stable genetic material, but aging in such individuals could be delayed due to steady character of their genome, which is less susceptible to mutations.
Super DNAging-New insights into DNA integrity, genome stability and telomeres in the oldest old.
TLDR
The most conclusive picture that emerges from reviewing the literature is that reaching "super old" age appears to be primarily determined by hereditary/genetic factors, while a healthy lifestyle additionally contributes to achieving the individual maximum lifespan in humans.
Genetics, lifestyle and longevity: Lessons from centenarians
TLDR
It is suggested that a comparative analysis of longevity between individuals with normal life span and centenarians, along with insights from population ecology and evolutionary biology, would not only advance knowledge of biological mechanisms underlying human longevity, but also provide deeper insights into extending healthy life span.
Centrosome Dysfunction and Senescence: Coincidence or Causality?
TLDR
The emerging view that centrosome aberrations represent a form of cellular stress that is necessary and sufficient to trigger a permanent cell cycle arrest and senescence is focused on.
Chromosomal stability in buccal cells was linked to age but not affected by exercise and nutrients - Vienna Active Ageing Study (VAAS), a randomized controlled trial
TLDR
Interestingly and contrary to what was shown in blood lymphocytes, chromosomal damage in buccal cells increases until very old age, which might qualify them as a valid biomarker for aging.
The effects of biological and life-style factors on baseline frequencies of chromosome aberrations in human lymphocytes
TLDR
The results of the study support the conclusion that sex and age, together with life-style habits of individuals as confounding factors can affect spontaneous frequency of CAs especially to CTAs in PBLs that are a biomarker of cancer risk.
Cellular aging and centrosome aberrations
TLDR
The results suggest that abnormal duplication of centrosomes in association with cellular aging may be responsible for the increase in chromosomal instability with aging.
Frequency of Spontaneous and Radiation-Induced Chromosomal Aberrations in Peripheral Blood Lymphocytes of Individuals of Different Ages
The frequency of spontaneous and X-ray-induced (0.25 Gy) in vitro chromosomal aberrations, as well as the level of chromosomal instability as a result of the bystander effect, in the blood

Manifestations of ageing at the cytogenetic level.
TLDR
It can be concluded that the chromosome aberrations are biomarkers of ageing in human cells.
On the nature of aging

    Mechanisms of Ageing and Development
  • 2000
TLDR
The aim of this paper is to indicate that aging may be multifactorial and the process of senescence may be determined by the information level of the organization, and to show that the roots of certain diseases could firmly be linked to the aging process itself.
Genetic stability: the key to longevity?
TLDR
In gerontology, there are abundant data indicating that functional cell capacity decreases with age, and the hypothesis is that a high percentage of people over eighty are practically 'normal' (successful aging), and are in fact in much the same position as the normal population of middle age.
Aging mechanisms.
Aging (senescence) has long been a difficult issue to be experimentally analyzed because of stochastic processes, which contrast with the programmed events during early development. However, we have
Genetic Contribution to Aging: Deleterious and Helpful Genes Define Life Expectancy
TLDR
The process of aging can be regarded as a multifactorial trait that results from an interaction between stochastic events and sets of epistatic alleles that have pleiotropic age‐dependent effects.
Genetic stability and oxidative stress: common mechanisms in aging and cancer.
TLDR
It is proposed that aging is not a result of genetic instability as are many different age- related diseases, and physiological aging and some age-related diseases could have separate and distinct mechanisms of causation and control.
A revolution for aging research
TLDR
While lifelong heterogeneity should reduce average age-specific mortality in late life whenever it is pronounced, the cessation of aging in latelife can be explained by plateaus in the forces of natural selection whether lifelong heterogeneity is present or not.
Biological Aging Is No Longer an Unsolved Problem
  • L. Hayflick
  • Biology, Medicine
    Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences
  • 2007
TLDR
The belief that aging is still an unsolved problem in biology is no longer true and there is a continuing belief that the resolution of age‐associated diseases will advance the understanding of the fundamental aging process, but this will not.
The future of ageing
TLDR
Determination of longevity must be distinguished from ageing to take us from the common question of why the authors age to a more revealing question that is rarely posed: why do they live as long as they do.
Chromosomal Damage Rate, Aging, and Diet a
  • M. Fenech
  • Chemistry, Medicine
    Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences
  • 1998
TLDR
It is shown that aging can explain at least 25% of the variation in chromosomal damage rate in lymphocytes from both males and females and chromosome damage can be modulated, under selected circumstances, by diverse dietary factors.
