The Redox-Senescence Axis in Aging
The accumulation of senescent cells is an important cause of degenerative aging. These cells secrete a mix of signals that produces chronic inflammation and disrupts tissue maintenance and function. Researchers here note that oxidative stress and oxidative signaling appear to be important in cellular senescence. These aspects of cellular metabolism are influenced by many of the small molecule drugs that have been found to affect senescence, either by slowing the pace at which cells become senescent, or by selectively inducing apoptosis in senescent cells. Myriad stress stimuli trigger the acquisition of senescence...
