Aging is strongly correlated with the accumulation of oxidative damage in DNA, particularly in mitochondria. Oxidative damage to both mitochondrial and nuclear DNA is repaired by the base excision repair (BER) pathway. The “mitochondrial theory of aging” suggests that aging results from declining mitochondrial function, due to high loads of damage and mutation in mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA). Restriction of caloric intake is the only intervention so far proven to slow the aging rate. However, the… Expand
Mitochondrial base excision repair assays.
The main source of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) damage is reactive oxygen species (ROS) generated during normal cellular metabolism. The main mtDNA lesions generated by ROS are base modifications, suchExpand
Mitochondrial base excision repair positively correlates with longevity in the liver and heart of mammals
TLDR
The higher mitochondrial BER of long-lived mammals contributes to their superior longevity, agrees with the updated version of the mitochondrial free radical theory of aging, and indicates the special relevance of mitochondria and mitROS for aging. Expand
In vitro measurement of DNA base excision repair in isolated mitochondria.
TLDR
This chapter outlines the step-by-step protocols for isolating mitochondrial fractions, from a number of different model organisms, of sufficient purity to allow mtDNA repair activities to be measured, and details in vitro assays for the measurement of BER enzyme activities in lysates prepared from isolated mitochondria. Expand
Mitochondrial base excision repair assays.
TLDR
This chapter outlines protocols for isolating mitochondria from mammalian cells in culture and from rodent tissues including liver and brain and also covers the isolation of synaptic mitochondria. Expand

TLDR
The main mitochondrial DNA repair pathways are reviewed and their association with the aging process is reviewed. Expand
DNA repair, mitochondria, and neurodegeneration
TLDR
The results reviewed here advocate that mitochondrial DNA damage response plays an important role in aging and in the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative diseases. Expand

TLDR
In this scenario, natural selection tends to decrease the mitochondrial ROS generation, the oxidative damage to mtDNA, and the mitochondrial mutation rate in long-lived species, in agreement with the mitochondrial oxidative stress theory of aging. Expand
Activities of DNA base excision repair enzymes in liver and brain correlate with body mass, but not lifespan
TLDR
Testing whether an enhancement of BER enzyme activities has occurred concomitantly with the evolution of increased maximum lifespan (MLSP) found nucleotide incorporation and oligonucleotide ligation activities appeared to be primarily (and negatively) correlated with species body mass. Expand

Creatine supplementation normalizes mutagenesis of mitochondrial DNA as well as functional consequences.
TLDR
Increases in intracellular creatine levels indicate that increase of the energy precursor creatine protects from functionally relevant, aging-associated mutations of mitochondrial DNA. Expand

Base excision repair capacity in mitochondria and nuclei: tissue‐specific variations
TLDR
There was no correlation between glycosylase activities in the mitochondrial extracts and COX activity, suggesting that DNA repair enzymes may be regulated by a mechanism different from this mitochondrial enzyme. Expand

TLDR
The results obtained agree with the notion that oxygen radicals of mitochondrial origin oxidatively damage mtDNA in a way related to the aging rate of each species. Expand
DNA repair and aging in mouse liver: 8-oxodG glycosylase activity increase in mitochondrial but not in nuclear extracts.
TLDR
The results show that the repair of 8-oxodG is regulated differently in nucleus and mitochondria during the aging process, and suggests that this pathway may be up regulated during aging in mice. Expand
Caloric restriction promotes genomic stability by induction of base excision repair and reversal of its age-related decline.
TLDR
Evidence that CR promotes genomic stability by increasing DNA repair capacity by increasing base excision repair (BER) is provided, and support for the hormesis theory of caloric restriction is provided. Expand
Multi-organ characterization of mitochondrial genomic rearrangements in ad libitum and caloric restricted mice show striking somatic mitochondrial DNA rearrangements with age.
TLDR
Observations confirm that mtDNA mutations accumulate with age in mice and suggest that caloric restriction impedes this progress, which is suggested to extend life span supporting an association between bioenergetics and senescence. Expand
Caloric restriction decreases mitochondrial free radical generation at complex I and lowers oxidative damage to mitochondrial DNA in the rat heart
TLDR
The results are consistent with the concept that CR decreases the aging rate at least in part by decreasing the rate of mitochondrial oxygen radical generation and then the rates of attack on mtDNA. Expand
Mouse models of mitochondrial disease, oxidative stress, and senescence.
TLDR
Recent work with a mouse mutant for the heart/muscle specific isoform of the mitochondrial adenine nuclear translocator (Ant1) demonstrates a potential link between mitochondrial oxidative stress and mitochondrial DNA mutations. Expand
Age-associated change in mitochondrial DNA damage.
TLDR
These findings agree with other reports showing an age-associated increase in levels of mtDNA damage; however, the degree to which it increases is smaller. Expand

TLDR
The results support the idea that caloric restriction reduces the aging rate at least in part by decreasing the rate of mitochondrial ROS production and so, the rates of oxidative attack to biological macromolecules like mtDNA. Expand
