Cellular senescence was historically discovered as a form of cellular ageing of in vitro cultured cells. It has been under the spotlight following the evidence of oncogene-induced senescence in vivo and its role as a potent tumour suppressor mechanism. Presently, a PubMed search using keywords 'cellular senescence and cancer' reveals 8398 number of(More)
Oncogene-induced senescence (OIS) is a potent barrier for the transformation of pre-cancerous cells. The molecular pathways involved in the execution of OIS are still incompletely understood, but they include chronic DNA damage signaling and post-translational modifications of key factors. Here, we show that OIS-associated transcriptional downregulation of(More)
Work carried out primarily in the laboratory of Fabrizio d'Adda di Fagagna unveils the mitogenic properties of Ras-induced reactive oxygen species (ROS) and their relationship with the DNA damage response. Combined data from studies of cultured cells, zebrafish models, and clinical material consistently support a role of the RAS-RAC1-NOX4 axis in ROS(More)
