    Naked mole-rat mortality rates defy Gompertzian laws by not increasing with age

    J Graham Ruby et al.
    Unlike all other mammals studied to date, the age-specific risk of mortality for naked mole-rats did not increase over decades of life, identifying this species as a non-aging mammal.

    Life Expectancy: Age is just a number

    Hiram Beltrán-Sánchez, Caleb Finch
    The naked mole rat defies the Gompertz law and shows no sign of increased mortality risk as it gets older.

    Effects of water, sanitation, handwashing, and nutritional interventions on telomere length among children in a cluster-randomized controlled trial in rural Bangladesh

    Audrie Lin et al.
    In a randomized controlled trial in rural Bangladesh, an intensive, combined water, sanitation, handwashing, and nutrition intervention delivered to compounds of newborn children increased telomere length attrition during their first year of life.

    Blockade of the LRP16-PKR-NF-κB signaling axis sensitizes colorectal carcinoma cells to DNA-damaging cytotoxic therapy

    Xiaolei Li et al.
    Leukemia-Related Protein 16 (LRP16), a member of the macro domain family, plays a crucial role in orchestrating genotoxicity-initiated NF-κB signaling in the colon and the pathophysiological relevance of NF-κB activation induced by LRP16 in colonic cell survival/recovery from extrinsic DNA damage.

    Smad4 restricts differentiation to promote expansion of satellite cell derived progenitors during skeletal muscle regeneration

    Nicole D Paris et al.
    Ablation of canonical TGFβ signaling in muscle stem cells at any age is detrimental, and not beneficial, to effective skeletal muscle regeneration due to the promotion of premature fate commitment at the expense of progenitor amplification.

    Reconstructing the in vivo dynamics of hematopoietic stem cells from telomere length distributions

    Benjamin Werner et al.
    Telomere length distributions can be used to infer important properties of stem cell proliferation.

    Global analysis of p53-regulated transcription identifies its direct targets and unexpected regulatory mechanisms

    Mary Ann Allen et al.
    The first global analysis of the effects of the transcription factor p53 on RNA synthesis illuminates several novels aspects of the molecular mechanism of action of this potent tumor suppressor.

    Mammalian genes induce partially reprogrammed pluripotent stem cells in non-mammalian vertebrate and invertebrate species

    Ricardo Antonio Rosselló et al.
    Cells from vertebrate and invertebrate model systems can be reprogrammed into stem-like cells using mouse genes.
