Telomeres, p53 and cellular senescence.


The ability of mammalian cells to respond to extrinsic mitogens is downregulated in response to proliferative aging (senescence), and it is now likely that at least a subset of such lifespan checkpoints is triggered by a biological "clock" based on erosion of chromosome telomeres. This review outlines the intrinsic inhibitory signal pathways that link this… (More)
