The article explores the irreversible effects of youthful choices in aged adults. Topics discussed include information on the impact of behaviors that cause irreversible changes to impair tissue function; discussions on the muscle exhaustion or mating-associated muscle damage impacts cell fate determination nonautonomously; and the information on the impact of the molecular changes on the germline stem cells.

    The developing testis provides an environment that nurtures germ cell development, ultimately ensuring spermatogenesis and fertility. Impacts on this environment are considered to underlie aberrant germ cell development and formation of germ cell tumour precursors. The signaling events involved...
