Non-shared environmental influences show only minimal stability over time prior to adulthood. The long assessment lags (typically 3-5 years) that characterize most longitudinal twin studies, however, make it difficult to interpret these results. To more rigorously evaluate non-shared environmental stability prior to adulthood, we fitted biometric correlated factors models to (1) ...

Prolonged storage generally reduces seed viability and vigour, although the rate of deterioration varies among species and environmental conditions. Here, we suggest a possible ageing molecular marker: At3g08030 mRNA. At3g08030 is a member of the DUF642 highly conserved family of cell-wall-associated proteins that is specific for spermatophytes. At3g08030 expression was ...

NFE2-related factor 2 (Nrf2) transcriptionally governs the cellular response to harmful electrophiles, xenobiotics, and reactive oxygen species. Its nuclear levels decline with age (Suh et al., 2004a), which in part explains the age-related loss of phase II detoxification. However, little work has yet characterized how age affects Nrf2 DNA binding ...
