Hypothesis: cell volume limits cell divisions.


Mammalian somatic cells and also cells of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae are capable of undergoing a limited number of divisions. Reaching the division limit is referred to, apparently not very fortunately, as replicative aging. A common feature of S. cerevisiae cells and fibroblasts approaching the limit of cell divisions in vitro is attaining giant… (More)
