    That's my chem project that I got assigned. Fucking teacher assigned two projects after the AP. This is both chem and bio so I didn't really know where to put it.

    My question is a little vague now, I'm just wondering if anybody know where I could find some good info on this stuff, i.e. the stuff in the title. As my work progresses I'm sure I'll develop more specific questions.

    I see things haven't changed since I was the one being "educated." Nothing like making learning new things "fun," eh? :wink: Hang in there, it won't always suck.

    Anyway, I did a quick google-search and got some partial "hits" (meaning I saw one or two of those words in the same link) but since I don't know what they mean, I can't say if they'll help you out. I'd suggest a similar search in lieu of someone that knows this stuff.

    Good luck. 8)

    try searching for 'superoxide' instead of 'supoeroxide', it'll help a lot i suppose. Try searching on Pubmed or Web of science, there's a lot of interesting articles there.

    Google scholar search works quite well for me when i am in a hurry.

    Also, use the works cited to help you find more papers on the same topic!

    What I am having trouble finding is this:
    I realize that the free radicals and reactive oxygen species do damage to the cells, called oxidative damage.

    I know that cellular senescence is the phenomenon where normal diploid differentiated cells lose the ability to divide.

    And I know that in general senescence is the combination of processes of deterioration which follow the period of development of an organism.

    Essentially what I can not determine is whether the oxidative damage is causing cellular senescence or just senescence in a more general sense. Everything I seem to find is either inconclusive on this issue or is not specific enough for me to tell which is happening. I think maybe I'm bad at this whole research thing.

    TIA
