Aging Cell

Aging Cell is the leading journal in geriatrics and gerontology and aims to publish novel and exciting science which addresses fundamental issues in the molecular biology of aging. All areas of aging biology are welcome in the journal and the experimental approaches used can be wide-ranging. With rapid developments in genomics, proteomics and other high throughput technologies, the combined analytical powers of genetics, biochemistry and cell biology are leading to increasingly rapid discoveries on the basic mechanisms of biological aging. Aging Cell welcomes the results of this exciting research.

Single-cell technique could provide 'egg health' indicators

Using the power of single-cell analysis, researchers at the Babraham Institute have assessed the effects of age on egg cells (oocytes) in mice, particularly looking to identify genomic and epigenetic factors that relate to ...

Senescent cells may be good when it comes to a bad injury

It's called senescence, when stressed cells can no longer divide to make new cells, and it's considered a factor in aging and in some diseases. Now scientists have some of the first evidence that at a younger age at least, ...

NSD2 enzyme appears to prevent cellular senescence

Researchers from Kumamoto University in Japan have used comprehensive genetic analysis to find that the enzyme NSD2, which is known to regulate the actions of many genes, also works to block cell aging. Their experiments ...

Osteopontin, a protein not always as bad as it is made out to be

Metabolic fatty liver disease, known as non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, is one of the most common causes of liver disease in Western countries and covers a spectrum of disorders. It is strongly associated with metabolic ...

Skin stem cells shuffle sugars as they age

Age shows nowhere better than on the skin. The ravages of time on skin and the epidermal stem cells that differentiate to replenish its outer layer have been hypothesized, but there has been no method to evaluate their aging ...
