Particular genetic mechanisms of aging are not specified by this evolutionary theory, but two leading candidates for which explicit theoretical treatments are available are (1) antagonistic pleiotropy, in which alleles tend to evolve that have beneficial effects at early ages of life but antagonistic deleterious effects later, and (2) age specificity of gene action, in which alleles with age-delayed deleterious somatic effects accumulate in evolution simply because they are nearly neutral in terms of fitness because of weak selection in later age classes.
