Example text

Cell division during adulthood is a double-edged sword. Our physiology as adults depends on cells that can divide. Our immune response, for example, requires the production of numerous cells that produce antibodies. But cells that increase in numbers without stopping, without some inhibiting mechanism, might become malignancies that can kill. A molecular mechanism that allows a lot of cell division, but not an unlimited amount, seems like a good idea. Perhaps that is why the Hayflick Limit exists, to control cancer?

A complex or hidden cause must be acting. It wasn't long before such hidden causes were proposed. Everything changed in the middle of the twentieth century for the study of aging, indeed for the study of biology generally. Molecular and cell biologists began to take over biology, starting with future Nobel laureates James Watson and Francis Crick publishing the double-helix model for DNA in 1953, and the demonstration that DNA molecules encode genes. Molecular and cell biologists have owned biology ever since.

Genetically altered fungi that always have erroneous protein synthesis suffer deterioration from an increase in defective protein. This shows that error catastrophes happen in mutants with a genetic tendency to errors of synthesis. But do they happen in normal aging, when there are no predisposing mutations? Many attempts were made to drive normal organisms toward error catastrophes, but none of them worked properly. Maynard Smith and his colleagues tried to make error catastrophes in fruit flies by feeding them chemically aberrant food, food that should have poisoned the protein synthesizing of the fly cells.
