Abstract: almost a half century ago, the free radical theory of ageing proposed that the reactive oxygen species (ros) is a key component which contributes to the pathophysiology of ageing in mammalian cells over the years, numerous studies have documented the role of oxidative stress caused by ros in the ageing process of higher organisms. In the aging brain, as well as in the case of several neurodegenerative diseases, there is a decline in the normal antioxidant defense mechanisms, which increases the vulnerability of the brain to the deleterious effects of oxidative damage. This finding is supported by a 2007 study which found that endothelial oxidative stress develops with aging in healthy men and is related to reductions in endothelium-dependant dilation in mammals, the question of the net effect of reactive oxygen species on aging is even less clear.

The former purports that with ageing, even in healthy ageing, there is a higher risk of oxidative stress build-up within the mitochondria, which eventually leads to a vicious cycle that leads to further damaged mitochondria and increased free radicals [2.
According to the theory, oxidative stress attacks mitochondria, leading to increased oxidative damage as a consequence, damaged mitochondria progressively become less efficient, losing their functional integrity and releasing more oxygen molecules, increasing oxidative damage to the mitochondria, and culminating in an accumulation of dysfunctional mitochondria with age. Critically discuss the research evidence that oxygen and oxidative stress are responsible for ageing for decades there have been hundreds of hypotheses regarding theories of ageing (finch) most of these ideas have been disregarded and several theories now captivate much research on ageing. These are the free radical theory and the inflammaging theories of ageing [2,3] the former purports that with ageing, even in healthy ageing, there is a higher risk of oxidative stress build-up.
Oxidative stress and ageing: the inﬂuence of environmental pollution, sunlight and diet on skin that oxidative stress induced by reactive oxygen species plays an important role in the process of mitohormesis introduces the interesting notion that low levels may have the reverse effect and may actually prevent ageing. Oxidative stress also increases the inversion of l- to d-form aspartyl residues in elastin typical of aging skin and related to its reduced elastic properties 12 hence, along with cellular changes resulting from oxidative stress, important changes to the skin tissue matrix also occur. Nisms of the point of intersection of the oxidative stress with other cellular components or events in the growing roadmap leading to different human disor- ders the toxic effect of reactive oxygen and nitrogen species in human is balanced by the antioxidant ac- tion of non-enzymatic antioxidants, as well as by an- tioxidant enzymes.
Have been shown to stimulate the production of reactive oxygen species and generate oxidative stress the oxidative damage from these exogenous sources can impair skin structure and function, leading to the phenotypic features of extrinsic skin ageing. Role of mitochondria in oxidative stress and ageing author links open overlay panel giorgio lenaz show more mitochondria are deeply involved in the production of reactive oxygen species through one-electron carriers in the respiratory chain mitochondrial structures are also very susceptible to oxidative stress as evidenced by massive. If oxidative stress theory is true, there are three predictions which will be true that researchers can focus their efforts on trying to prove: accumulation of oxidised macromolecules with age, manipulation of diet/pharmacological/genetic factors will reduce oxidative stress, and decreasing levels of oxidative stress will increase lifespan. Oxidative stress from the generation of reactive oxygen species has been increasingly implicated as a driving force in skin ageing, leading to loss of skin structure and function while intrinsic skin ageing driven by genetics is inevitable, our exposure to some of the extrinsic factors that affect the process is under our influence. Oxidative stress and ageing: the inﬂuence of environmental pollution, sunlight and diet on skin that oxidative stress induced by reactive oxygen species plays an important role in the process of extrinsic ageing is related to the cumulative effects of environmental factors such as ultraviolet radiation (uvr), smoking and environmental.

In addition, respiratory chain defects may become associated with increased production of ros, thus establishing a vicious circle of mtdna mutations and oxidative stress the redox mechanism of ageing [159, 160] unifies both the ideas of the mitochondrial theory [157, 158] and of the free radical theory of ageing.

Denham harman first proposed the free radical theory of aging in the 1950s, and in the 1970s extended the idea to implicate mitochondrial production of reactive oxygen species in some model organisms, such as yeast and drosophila, there is evidence that reducing oxidative damage can extend lifespan.
