This article deals with some of posttranslational modifications of proteins which are, or could beuseful to work out objective and standard methods for age estimation in forensic medicine. Frommany posttranslational modifications other than racemization, the evaluation of pentosidine, oneof the products of nonenzymatic glycosylation, seems to be promising. The enlargement of menuof methods for age estimation is important mainly for forensic sciences when determination ofthe age of an unknown dead body is necessary. Morphological methods are quite often subjectiveand charged with errors.
