A Novel Regulator of Cellular Senescence
Provided herein are methods for regulating whether a cell undergoes apoptosis or senescence, comprising modulating the level of expression an/or activity of SENEX in the cell, wherein increasing the expression and/or activity of SENEX relative to normal endogenous levels induces cellular senescence and decreasing the expression and/or activity of SENEX relative to normal endogenous levels induces apoptosis. Methods for the diagnosis and treatment of senescence-associated and apoptosis-associated disorders are also provided.
