Death sentence
Researchers publishing in Science have found that the well-known biomarker p21 starts a fatal timer for mouse liver cells. Get better or die As the researchers demonstrate, the cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor p21, which is encoded by the Cdkn1a gene, is associated with its own secretome: the p21-associated secretory phenotype (PASP). Similar but not identical to...
Bosu exercise
A new study published in Aging Cell shows that a 12-week program of structured exercise lowers the activity of the inflammatory SASP in people in their mid-60s. Why we Age: Cellular SenescenceAs your body ages, more of your cells become senescent. Senescent cells do not divide or support the tissues of which they are part;...
Two mice
A team of researchers led by Dr. Judith Campisi of the Buck Institute has discovered valuable information about how cells express the senescence marker p21 [1]. Why we Age: Cellular SenescenceAs your body ages, more of your cells become senescent. Senescent cells do not divide or support the tissues of which they are part; instead,...
Lung senescence tissue markers
A study published in Aging shows that not only do different cell types express different levels of the senescence markers p16 and p21, these markers increase, and occasionally decrease, at different rates. Senescence and its markers Senescent cells are known to be harmful in excess, as they do not support their tissues and excrete the...
