mutations & aging

Post by cellquestion » Fri Oct 09, 2009 12:30 am

I was just wondering mutations that contribute to aging can occur in any & even in every back up extra etc gene chromosome etc right?

I don't think, that mutations can cause aging by themselves. It's more about the "normal" processes in the body ;)

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

Chaos theory could be applied to biological organisms. Do you think?

aging is not entropy. If that were true, how can you explain that you mutate a gene and the organism lives twice as long?
