Researchers have launched a new database dedicated to mapping and understanding the complexity of cellular senescence in a bid to help us fully understand this age-related phenomenon.  Introducing the CellAge database The Human Ageing Genomic Resources (HAGR) is a series of databases and tools that have been developed to aid researchers on aging and help…

In a new study, researchers have found that the zinc-finger transcription factor Slug is responsible for repressing p16Ink4a, a compound that promotes senescence in human tissue. The researchers suggest that Slug is worth exploring as a treatment for sarcopenia [1]. Satellite cells Satellite cells are specialized stem cells that form new muscle cells when the…
