Aging is a set of changes that occur due to loss of function of cells and increase the risk of an individual for death. The mechanism of aging is not fully understood but it is believed that the changes at the molecular level are caused by processes that occur due to loss of function of the cell. Researchers in the study of aging use various model organisms that are a potential source of specific genes through which this process could be modified. In this paper, special attention is given to the naked mole-rat, the organism whicht represents the greatest potential for future studies of the aging process. Its unique characteristics resulting from unusual lifestyle, are enabling the study of diverse biological processes.
