Functional screening to identify senescence regulators in cancer

Current Opinion in Genetics & Development 2019 March 13, 54: 17-24
Cellular senescence is implicated in numerous biological processes, and can play pleiotropic, sometimes opposing, roles in cancer. Several triggers, cell types, contexts, and senescence-associated phenotypes introduce a multitude of possibilities when studying this process and its biological consequences. Recent studies continue to characterize cellular senescence at different levels, using a combination of functional screens, in silico analysis, omics characterizations and more targeted studies. However, a comprehensive analysis of its context-dependent effects and multiple phenotypes is required. Application of state-of-the-art and emerging technologies will increase our understanding of this complex process and better guide future strategies to harness senescence to our advantage, or to target it when detrimental.

Search Tips

Use Boolean operators: AND/OR

diabetic AND foot
diabetes OR diabetic

Exclude a word using the 'minus' sign

Virchow -triad

Use Parentheses

water AND (cup OR glass)

Add an asterisk (*) at end of a word to include word stems

Neuro* will search for Neurology, Neuroscientist, Neurological, and so on

Use quotes to search for an exact phrase

"primary prevention of cancer"
(heart or cardiac or cardio*) AND arrest -"American Heart Association"
