Slower rates of accumulation of DNA damage in leukocytes correlate with longer lifespans across several species of birds and mammals

Figure 4. Lifespan, short telomeres, and DNA damage. (A) Maximum lifespan vs rate of increase of % short telomeres fit with a linear regression line. (B) Maximum lifespan vs rate of increase of % short telomeres fit with a power law regression line. (C) Average lifespan vs rate of increase of % short telomeres fit with a linear regression line. (D) Average lifespan vs rate of increase of % short telomeres fit with a power law regression line. (E) Rate of increase of percentage of short telomeres vs. rate of γH2AX increase.
