Cellular Senescence: A Common Thread Across Age-Related Diseases
Listicle Mar 31, 2021 | By Michele Wilson, PhD
Though degenerative and hyperplastic diseases are diverse and manifest in very different ways, they appear to be connected by at least one common process – cellular senescence. Cellular senescence describes the complex cellular response to stress that includes irreversible arrest of the cell cycle, resulting in the prevention of defective or damaged cells.
