23:23 FightAging.OrgPresenting the SASP Atlas for the Senescence-Associated Secretory Phenotype

The presence of growing numbers of lingering senescent cells is one of the root causes of aging. Vast numbers of cells become senescent every day, but near all are quickly removed, either via programmed cell death or the actions of the immune system. A tiny number survive, however, and that alone would eventually be enough to cause age-related disease and death. While senescent cells never rise to very large fractions of all of the cells in a given tissue, they cause considerable harm via a potent mix of secreted signals known as the senescence-associated secretory phenotype, or SASP. The SASP causes chronic inflammation and destructive remodeling of the nearby extracellular matrix. Further, it changes the behavior of other cells for the worse, including increasing their […]

Scientists have recognized the relationship between normal organ development and cancer for more than 100 years. More recently, researches have begun to emphasize that the heterogeneous nature of most cancers largely contributes towards their clinical response. Now, a team of investigators at Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI) at the University of Utah (U of U) and the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, have created the first single cell resolution atlas of genes that control the formation of breast tissue. The atlas provides a comprehensive molecular map that the researchers are optimistic will be used to help understand how breast cancers form and to pinpoint new ways to prevent, diagnose, and treat the disease. Findings from the new study were published recently in Cell Reports through an article titled “ Single-Cell Transcriptomes Distinguish Stem Cell State Changes and Lineage
