Senescence

Cellular senescence is a key parameter in aging research and cancer, with over 13,000 PubMed citations in 2011 alone. Our Cellular Senescence Kits monitor increased expression of the senescence associated enzyme acid β-galactosidase that parallels cell and tissue entry into this quiescent state, while cancer cells maintain their tumorgenicity by avoiding it. Furthermore, many primary cell types in vitro, particularly fibroblast cells, have a limited capacity to reproduce in cell culture upon entry into senescence, signaling excessive passaging. Marker Gene Technologies, Inc. kits provide a robust and reliable readout of this critical marker.
