A rat that had received tritiated acetate perinatally was killed at the age of 609 days, and was found to have retained substantial quantities of tritium in all organs examined. This study was focussed on the liver, which—after a succession of extractions with a series of various solvents followed by catalytic hydrolysis at body temperature—yielded a residue that was‐insoluble in a wide range of common solubilizing media. Treatment with hot mineral acid partially dissolved this residue and… Expand
Some therapeutic implications of the crosslinkage theory of aging.
  • J. Bjorksten
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Advances in experimental medicine and biology
  • 1977
The concept of crosslinkages as the base for aging was suggested by Bjorksten (1941), who in 1942 expressed this theory as follows: “The aging of living organisms I believe is due to the occasionalExpand
Identification of New Potential APE1 Inhibitors by Pharmacophore Modeling and Molecular Docking
TLDR
1,338 potential inhibitors of APE1 with predicted binding affinities to the enzyme are identified using two distinct pharmacophore models constructed. Expand
Zinc Phosphide Induced DNA Damage in the Blood Cells of Gallus sp. using Comet DNA Assay
TLDR
Zinc Phosphide is toxic to blood nuclear DNA and the genetic toxic ity appeared to be dose specific and dose dependent. Expand
Interlace between Chromatin Structure, DNA Repair and Ubiquitination
Chromatin remodeling, ubiquitylation, and DNA damage repair may be regarded as three discrete processes, but in fact, they are three extremely important interlinked processes that are imperative forExpand
Oxidative DNA Damage Modulates Trinucleotide Repeat Instability Via DNA Base Excision Repair
TLDR
This study provides the first evidence that the repair of a DNA base lesion can also contribute to CAG repeat deletions that were initiated by the formation of hairpins on both the template and the damaged strand of a continuous run of (CAG)20 or (C AG)25 repeats. Expand
The Potential Effect of Different Doses of Ionizing Radiation on Genes and Disease
TLDR
The analysis indicated that chromosomes 9q were the most sensitive to translocations after various doses of radiation, and such translocations occurred in the euchromatin region, which could be useful when selecting sensitive reference chromosomes in the low-dose region. Expand

NITROGENOUS COMPOUNDS IMMOBILIZED IN AN AGED RAT
TLDR
A pregnant rat received 8 mc of tritiated tyrosine at the time of giving birth (from seven days before, to six days after) and a male from this litter died from pneumonia at age 809 days. Expand
CHEMICAL COMPOSITION OF ENZYME‐FRACTIONATED AGED HEART TISSUE
TLDR
The research presented here, aged cardiac tissue was fractionated SUCcessively with 5 proteolytic enzymes, and the resultant insoluble hard core was subjected to chemical analysis and served to remove extraneous contaminants and thereby obtain an inkling as to the basic chemical composition of the enzyme-resistant residuum accumulated in these old hearts over a lifetime.

TLDR
The present study arose from the observation that a more intense colour was sometimes produced if, instead of being heated at 1000 for 10 min., the reaction mixture was allowed to stand overnight at room temperature. Expand

TLDR
In order to focus on the tangible chemical aspects of the problem, it is necessary to exclude from consideration here those theories which do not involve or imply clear and specific concepts on a molecular basis. Expand
