Scientists single out gene that triggers aging symptoms

The steady march of aging might not have to be so steady, according to a growing body of research. The latest development, from a team at the University at Buffalo, has now isolated a single gene that controls senescence, the process that stops cells from dividing, and found how easily that can spread among neighboring cells. That makes the gene a crucial target for future work into anti-aging and cancer therapies…
