Effect of Age on Kidney Hyperplasia in the Rat during Cold Acclimation
The decreased adaptability of old organisms to different stressing agents is a well known phenomenon, usually considered as one of the main indicators of ageing. Regeneration proceeds at a slower rate, even if the final size of the regenerate may sometimes be the same as in younger individuals. Adaptive growth of the kidney compensating unilateral nephrectomy in rats is inhibited in older individuals (1).
