The objective of this study was to elucidate the possible nature of the mechanism underlying the widely observed phenomenon that the rate of H2O2 production by mitochondria increases during the aging process, using flight muscle mitochondria of the male housefly as a model system. The protein carbonyl content of mitochondria increased linearly with age of… CONTINUE READING
