Rejuvenating senolytics -
Cellular senescence, which is induced by a variety of stresses, is a state of proliferative arrest that is characterized by changes in gene expression and the secretion of pro-inflammatory factors — known as the senescence-associated secretory ...

In 1822, the French Egyptologist Jean-François Champollion announced the complete deciphering of the hieroglyphs carved around 200 bc into a block of granodiorite, the so-called Rosetta stone. This was an impressive intellectual achievement, as it ...

A sugar rush of DNA methylation -
Diabetes predisposes to cancer development, but the molecular mechanisms underlying this tumour-promoting effect are poorly understood. Wu et al. now show that elevated glucose levels, which are a hallmark of diabetes, are directly linked to decreased ...
