DNA synthesis is almost confined to the basal layer and declines with age, with an enlargement of the nuclei and nucleoli of the basal cells. In humans, the number of parietal cells in the gastric mucosa tends to increase and that of mucous cells is reduced during normal aging [137]. Since the mucus protects from acid secretion, the findings can explain an increased susceptibility of the gastric mucosa to damage in the elderly. The permanent restructuring that occurs in bone is the result of the continuous shift that takes place in the balance between the activity of osteoblasts and osteoclasts leading to a functionally deficient architecture.

5–1 kb shorter than females in every tissue examined. The data suggested that telomere lengths may decrease due to factors other than the end replication problem during cell division [75]. Chicken telomeres resemble human telomeres in length, but the distribution of telomerase activity is present in the germ line as well as in a wide variety of 30 Macieira-Coelho Robert L, Fulop T (eds): Aging: Facts and Theories. Interdiscipl Top Gerontol. 1159/000358898 somatic tissues as in mice [76]. It is well known that chicken fibroblasts have a finite proliferation span and contrary to mice exhibit extremely low rates of spontaneous immortalization.

The kinetics of cell proliferative aging concluded from these works are illustrated in figure 1. Other experiments attempting to identify the loss of the division potential of fibroblasts in vitro claimed that at each doubling of the cell population there is production of nondividing cells, which increase exponentially [12, 13]. These authors did not realize that their experiments based on cloning of cells and on radioactive thymidine incorporation at low cell densities measured only the fraction of cells capable of initiating rapidly the division cycle.
