The 26S proteasome degrades proteins tagged with ubiquitin chains and ATP dependently, while the 20S proteasome degrades non-ubiquitinated proteins without ATP. On the other hand, the lysosomal pathway of proteolysis has developed into the elucidation of autophagy-lysosome systems, in which protein aggregates and damaged organelles are specifically recognized and destroyed, contrary to what was originally believed to be non-specific (Koga et al. 2011). Both systems of protein degradation have profound impacts on aging and age-related diseases, particularly in neurodegenerative diseases (Rubinsztein et al.

Centenarians could have clinically non-evident diseases such as cancer and chronic infection. These diseases have been shown to cause an inflammatory reaction. Several investigators have reported that aging itself contributes to a proinflammatory state. Claudio Francheschi, who studies immune function in centenarians, proposed the “inflamm-aging” hypothesis (Franchschi et al. 2000). The aging-inflammation hypothesis is based on the analysis of the nutritional status of centenarians. If this hypothesis is correct, aging-associated phenotypes such as decline of ADL, cognitive function, and nutritional status can be modified by the suppression of excessive inflammatory reactions.
