Hallmark of Aging Reversed by Senescent Cell Removal

25-Mar-2017

Key points from article :

Study directly targets one of the mechanisms that senescent cells use to avoid apoptosis,

Focused on FOXO4 (Forkhead box protein O4) and its influence on p53 gene.

Senescent cells increase expression of FOXO4 to escape apoptosis.

New approach potentially has fewer side effects.

The study was published in the Cell journal.
