Abstract

The senescence-accelerated mouse (SAM) is a murine model of accelerated senescence, which was established by Takeda and colleagues in 1981.1 There are now eight accelerated senescence prone SAMP mice, namely SAMP1, P2, P3, P6, P7, P8, P9 and P10 and three senescence resistant SAMR mice, namely SAMR1, R2 and R4. The latter resistant strains exhibit normal characteristics of aging. In the SAMP series, SAMP8 and SAMP10 show early onset and rapid advancement of senescence, which is revealed by analysis of aging dynamics such as survivorship curve and grading score system.2 They also exhibit a significant age-related deterioration of memory and learning abilities for passive and active avoidance tasks.3,4,5 (Table 1)
