  1. pmc Aging and death in an organism that reproduces by morphologically symmetric division
    Eric J Stewart
    INSERM, U571, Paris, France
    PLoS Biol 3:e45. 2005
    ..These results suggest that no life strategy is immune to the effects of aging, and therefore immortality may be either too costly or mechanistically impossible in natural organisms...
  2. pmc Mutations in two global regulators lower individual mortality in Escherichia coli
    Fanette Fontaine
    INSERM, U571, Paris, F 75015, France
    Mol Microbiol 67:2-14. 2008
    ..The identification of these two mutants implies that reducing mortality is not impossible; rather, due to its cost, it is subject to trade-offs with other traits that contribute to the competitive success of the organism...
  3. pmc Asymmetric segregation of protein aggregates is associated with cellular aging and rejuvenation
    Ariel B Lindner
    Institut National de la Sante et de la Recherche Medicale, Unité 571, F 75015 Paris, France
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 105:3076-81. 2008
    ..This suggests an asymmetric strategy whereby dividing cells segregate damage at the expense of aging individuals, resulting in the perpetuation of the population...

    Science 319:1533-6. 2008
    ..The incidence of DNA splitting corresponds to about one crossover per cell generation...
