Abstract: In the Tour de France, cycling teams can drop in the standings if individual riders lag. Similarly, mice that grow old prematurely might do so because some cells wither, according to a new study. The work suggests why one rodent line deteriorates quickly, although researchers need further evidence to nail down the cause.
