About this book

Redox Metabolism and Longevity Relationships in Animals and Plants focuses on the recent issues that have emerged in ageing research in both the animal and plant kingdoms. Redox Metabolism and Longevity Relationships in Animals and Plants reviews current concepts concerning cellular redox homeostatis and ageing in animals and plants, relationships to programmed cell death, the production of oxidants and dicarbonyls, the ways that different organisms perceive and respond to oxidative, nitration and glycation challenges, and how this might be intricately connected to ageing and lifespan.


1. What can we learn from the cross-species biology of ageing?
2. Rebirth and death: Nitric oxide and reactive oxygen species in seeds
3. Ageing and oxidants in the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans
4. The perception of reactive oxygen species in plants: the road to signal transduction
5. Mechanisms and genes controlling programmed cell death and Darwinian fitness in plants
6. Ageing research in the post-genome era: New technologies for an old problem
7. Telomeres, ageing and oxidation
8. A-type lamins, disease and ageing: A stress-induced relationship?
9. Role of the glyoxalase pathway in delaying plant senescence under stress conditions
10. Catalase regulation during leaf senescence of Arabidopsis
11. Atmospheric CO2 signalling, cellular redox state and plant growth and development
12. Protein damage in the ageing process: Advances in quantitation and the importance of enzymatic defences
