The latter states that oxidative damage underlies trade-offs because it affects traits like growth, reproduction or cell senescence...

... analyses in other tissues demonstrate that these molecular changes are not generalized markers of senescence, but instead, specific features of the optic glands. Our study expands the classic optic gland–pituitary gland analogy and more specifically, it indicates that, rather than a single ‘self-destruct...

...Steven J. Lane; W. Anthony Frankino; Michelle M. Elekonich; Stephen P.

Flight capacity in insects decreases with age; in contrast, limiting flight...

Oxidative stress, an overproduction of reactive oxygen species in relation to cellular defences, can correlate with reproductive investment and has been implicated as a pathway leading to senescence. This has led to the suggestion that this aspect of physiology could...
