  1. COENZYME Q INTAKE, OXIDATIVE STRESS, AND AGING IN MICE
    RAJINDAR SOHAL; Fiscal Year: 2004
    ..Results of this study will provide an understanding of the mechanisms by which CoQ intake may have a beneficial or deleterious effect on the aging process in mice. ..
  2. CELLULAR AGING AND OXYGEN FREE RADICALS
    RAJINDAR SOHAL; Fiscal Year: 2005
    ..The significance of this study is that it will provide a direct test of a basic tenet of the oxidative stress hypothesis of aging, namely that mitochondrial oxidative damage plays a key role in the aging process. ..
  3. CELLULAR AGING AND OXYGEN FREE RADICALS
    RAJINDAR SOHAL; Fiscal Year: 2007
    ..More broadly, results should provide a direct test of the validity of oxidative stress hypothesis. ..
  4. DIETARY MODULATION OF CELLULAR OXIDATIVE STRESS IN AGING
    RAJINDAR SOHAL; Fiscal Year: 2007
