The potential for mistakes is thus large and would be expected to grow exponentially with increasing chronological age. Further, since a number of the proteins produced may be involved as surveillance enzymes in maintaining the accuracy of the entire process, feedback mechanisms could lead to collapse of the system, resulting in a phenomenon initially termed error catastrophe (Orgel 1963, 1973). In support of this scenario, it was shown that the lifespan of mammalian species was inversely correlated with their rates of protein turnover (Spector 1974).
The molecule that has been principally implicated in accumulation theories is lipofuscin, a highly insoluble, pigmented compound present with advancing age in the cells of many mammalian tissues, including neurons, cardiac muscle fibres, and the adrenal cortex. Lipofuscin is believed to be derived by auto-oxidation from incompletely degraded cellular materials, in particular the lipid component of cell mitochondrial membranes (Fleming et al. 1985). As such it appears probable that the build-up of lipofuscin, which has not been demonstrated to affect cell function critically, may be secondary to an age-related decline in the function of cellular catabolic processes.
Although ageing cannot be adequately described merely in terms of lifespan, actuarial study of a population can provide valuable insights into the process of ageing, and it is widely accepted that lifespan is a constitutional feature of the phenotype of a species. Increases in maximum lifespan potential during the course of hominid evolution were estimated from allometric regressions on brain weight and body weight (Sacher 1959). According to this method, data derived from early hominid fossil remains suggest an approximate doubling of maximum lifespan potential over the past 3 million years, with the greatest increase occurring about 100 000 years ago (Cutler 1975; Brown 1988).
