  • Evidence that a mitochondrial death spiral underlies antagonistic pleiotropy 

    Stern, Michael (2017)
    The antagonistic pleiotropy (AP) theory posits that aging occurs because alleles that are detrimental in older organisms are beneficial to growth early in life and thus are maintained in populations. Although genes of the ...
