New atlas represents the culmination of many years of research for full database.
Accumulation of senescent cells and resulting SASP is one of the hallmarks of aging.
Each profile consists of hundreds of largely distinct proteins.
Also includes a subset of proteins elevated in all SASPs.
Aims to help researchers to develop more clinically relevant biomarkers for detecting SASPs.
Big help as SASP is a promising therapeutic target for multiple age-related conditions.
