Hot of the Buck blog press! Read how scientists are leveraging #iPSC technology to improve aging #livebetterlonger https://www.buckinstitute.org/blog/aging-is-inevitable-but-lets-make-it-better/

Deficiency in the DNA repair protein ERCC1 triggers a link between #senescence and apoptosis in human fibroblasts and mouse skin by Judith Campisi's group @BuckInstitute https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1111/acel.13072

The t-loop sounds like a complex metro rail system but it’s actually a vital and dynamic #telomerestructure that helps protect #DNA. New work in @nature provides insights into how t-loops are regulated to wind and unwind at the right time #livebetterlonger https://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2019-11/tfci-cru111119.php

#autophagy is usually good, but maybe you don’t want too much recycling when #DNA is loose in the cell, like during #mitosis. New work shows CDK1, not mTORC1, works to suppress autophagy during mitosis https://zcu.io/0eHx #livebetterlonger
