Metabolic Damage and Premature Thymus Aging Caused by Stromal Catalase Deficiency.
 

Author(s): Ann V Griffith, Thomas Venables, Jianjun Shi, Andrew Farr, Holly van Remmen, Luke Szweda, Mohammad Fallahi, Peter Rabinovitch, Howard T Petrie

Journal: Cell Rep. 2015 Aug;12(7):1071-9.

 

T lymphocytes are essential mediators of immunity that are produced by the thymus in proportion to its size. The thymus atrophies rapidly with age, resulting in progressive diminution of new T cell production. This decreased output is compensated by duplication of existing T cells, ...

Reversible cell cycle inhibition and premature aging features imposed by conditional expression of p16Ink4a.
 

Author(s): Amelie Boquoi, Sanjeevani Arora, Tina Chen, Sam Litwin, James Koh, Greg H Enders

Journal: Aging Cell. 2015 Feb;14(1):139-47.

 

The cyclin-dependent kinase (Cdk) inhibitor p16(Ink4a) (p16) is a canonical mediator of cellular senescence and accumulates in aging tissues, where it constrains proliferation of some progenitor cells. However, whether p16 induction in tissues is sufficient to inhibit cell proliferation, ...
