Systematic Approach Identifies Multiple Transcription Factor Perturbations That Rejuvenate Replicatively Aged Human Skin Fibroblasts

This work identified dozens of potentially rejuvenating transcription factors—those that when overexpressed or repressed in late passage cells reprogrammed global gene expression patterns back to an earlier passage state and validated four top TF perturbations through molecular phenotyping of various aging hallmarks.

A generalizable epigenetic clock captures aging in two nonhuman primates

A generalizable epigenetic clock is built using genome-wide DNA methylation data from 493 free-ranging rhesus macaques to provide a flexible tool for predicting age in other populations and species and illustrate how connecting behavioral data with the epigenetic Clock can uncover social influences on biological age.

Intestinal stem cell aging at single-cell resolution: functional perturbations alter cell developmental trajectory reversed by gerotherapeutics

Novel effects of aging on stem cells and the maturation of their daughter cells contributing to the decline of functional Lgr5hi ISCs and the correction by geroprotectors are identified.

Microvesicle-Mediated Tissue Regeneration Mitigates the Effects of Cellular Ageing

It is shown that MV, but not Exo, from Pathfinder cells (PC), a putative stem cell regulatory cell type, enhance the repair of Human Dermal Fibroblast and Mesenchymal Stem Cell co-cultures following both mechanical and genotoxic stress, the first description of EV-based senolysis.

Stress induced aging in mouse eye.

It is shown that susceptibility to response to stress increases with age and is primed on chromatin level, and repeated stress accelerates appearance of aging features in tissues and suggest chromatin modifications as the key molecular components of aging.

Scleraxis-lineage cells are required for tendon homeostasis and their depletion induces an accelerated extracellular matrix aging phenotype

DTR is defined a novel model of accelerated tendon ECM aging via depletion of Scleraxis-lineage cells in young mice (DTR) and identifies novel biological intervention points to maintain tendon function through the lifespan.

The epigenetic aging, obesity, and lifestyle

The present narrative review takes into account the interaction between epigenetic aging and obesity, suggesting that epigenome may be an intriguing target for age-related physiological changes and that its modification could influence aging and prolong a healthy lifespan.

PRC2 clock: a universal epigenetic biomarker of aging and rejuvenation

The “PRC2 clock,” defined as the average DNAm in PRC2 LMRs, is proposed as a universal biomarker of cellular aging in somatic cells and demonstrates the application of this biomarker in the evaluation of different anti-aging interventions, including dietary restriction and partial epigenetic reprogramming.



Epigenetic aging signatures in mice livers are slowed by dwarfism, calorie restriction and rapamycin treatment

This study shows that lifespan-extending conditions can slow molecular changes associated with an epigenetic clock in mice livers, and finds that mice treated with lifespan-Extending interventions were significantly younger in epigenetic age than their untreated, wild-type age-matched controls.

A model for age- related regenerative decline in the fly intestine is presented and recent findings that start to establish molecular mechanisms of age-related decline of mammalian ISC function are discussed.

Epigenomic drivers of immune dysfunction in aging

Through understanding the molecular events which underpin the phenotypic changes observed in the aged immune system, it is hoped that the agedimmune system can be restored to provide youthful immunity once more.

Transient non-integrative expression of nuclear reprogramming factors promotes multifaceted amelioration of aging in human cells

Aging is characterized by a gradual loss of function occurring at the molecular, cellular, tissue and organismal levels. At the chromatin level, aging associates with progressive accumulation of

Rejuvenating senescent and centenarian human cells by reprogramming through the pluripotent state.

It is demonstrated that cellular senescence is not a limit to reprogramming and that age-related cellular physiology is reversible, and it is shown that senescent and centenarian-derived pluripotent stem cells are able to redifferentiate into fully rejuvenated cells.

Reprogramming in vivo produces teratomas and iPS cells with totipotency features

It is shown that transitory induction of the four factors Oct4, Sox2, Klf4 and c-Myc in mice results in teratomas emerging from multiple organs, implying that full reprogramming can occur in vivo.
