Merging Routes

Multiple paths lead to senescence

R. John Davenport

Abstract: Cells, like people, lose their vitality, and researchers are eager to track down the mechanisms that prompt normal cell life to screech to a halt. New research helps enumerate the proteins that make cells stagnate when chromosome ends fray--and reveals that one protein halts cells by other means. The findings bolster the idea that signals other than eroding telomeres can shut down cells.
