2009). Additionally, recent work makes a principled distinction between cellular quiescence (cell cycle arrest) and cellular senescence (Blagosklonny, 2011), with the former reversible, and paradoxically, with activation of the progrowth mTOR pathways increasing the likelihood of senescence, while inhibition of TOR saves cells from this biological “dead-end” and shifts them into quiescence. Thus, cell signaling pathways involved in aging also have a critical role as well, suggesting that conjoined activation of DNA-damage sensing systems such as p53 and p21 (which orchestrate blocks on cell cycling) and growth pathways simultaneously helps to select senescence.

2011). These considerations suggest that many neurodegenerative disorders (which are all primary proteinopathies) may have future effective treatments based at least in part on the improvement of autophagy function. Apoptosis Apoptosis, originally thought to be a deleterious and primarily negative process, now is appreciated to have a critical role in adaptation and longevity. ). Thus, a delicate balance must be struck, and dysfunction in the regulation of programmed cell death can mean that, on one hand, apoptosis potentially contributes to atrophy and a senescent cell phenotype, while, on the other, its failure potentially leads to neoplastic cell proliferation.
