As the lifespan of humans increases, research into aging and its related pathological conditions is gaining momentum. This book is the first to explain protein oxidation and the aging process, focusing on the connection between protein disturbances and the oxidative stress that cells continually undergo. Coverage includes major and novel techniques that can be used to analyze protein oxidation, how protein oxidation products can be biomarkers of aging, and the very broad involvement of protein oxidation in such diseases as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancer.
