2011). The age-associated decline in the chaperon-mediated autophagy can be caused by decreased content of the substrate receptor (lysosomeassociated membrane protein type 2a) (Cuervo and Dice 2000) and the age-associated impairment of lysosomal function (Kurz et al. 2008). A number of studies have established the extensive involvement of altered protein conformation in age-associated neurodegenerative diseases. These are mainly due to the impaired functions of ubiquitin-proteasomes and/or autophagylysosome systems and the chaperon dysfunctions described in many excellent reviews (Takalo et al.

In the first part of this review, we summarize functional and biomedical characteristics of centenarians mainly based on the results from the Tokyo Centenarian Study (TCS), an interdisciplinary research on the oldest old. We propose several hypotheses on human aging based on these findings. Centenarians are generally characterized by delayed onset of age-related diseases or disabilities into their 90s; however, upon reaching the age of 100 years, substantial evidence has demonstrated that frailty (Gondo et al.

In some cases, reactive aldehydes derived from lipid peroxidation are responsible for the modifications. We and other investigators have shown that the heat-labile enzymes described above are generated by a reaction with ROSs in vitro (Takahashi and Goto 1990). The chemistry of modifications has been studied extensively, proving that the sidechains of specific amino acid residues, such as lysine and arginine, are modified (Stadtman 1993). Notably, carbonyl moieties generated by oxidation have most frequently been used to evaluate oxidative stress on proteins by biochemical or immunochemical methods (Levine et al.
