Genes that control cellular senescence identified

(Kobe University) A research group has succeeded in identifying genes that control cellular senescence -- permanently arrested cell growth. The process involved treating liver cancer cells using anticancer drugs of various concentrations, inducing apoptotic cell death and cellular senescence, and comparing gene expression levels.
