Cellular Senescence: The Trojan Horse in Chronic Lung Diseases.

Summary of "Cellular Senescence: The Trojan Horse in Chronic Lung Diseases."

Senescence is a cell-fate decision characterized by irreversible arrest of proliferation accompanied by senescence associated secretory phenotype (SASP). Traditionally, cellular senescence was recognized as a beneficial physiological mechanism during development, wound healing, and in tumor suppression. However, in recent years identification of negative consequences of cellular senescence has emerged, illuminating its role in several chronic pathologies. In this context, senescent cells persist or accumulate and have detrimental consequences. In this review, we discuss the possibility that in COPD, persistent senescence impairs wound healing in the lung characterized by secretion of pro-inflammatory SASP factors and exhaustion of progenitor cells. In contrast, in IPF, chronic senescence in alveolar epithelial cells exacerbates the accumulation of senescent fibroblasts along with production of extracellular matrix. We review how cellular senescence may contribute to lung disease pathology.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Process by which cells irreversibly stop dividing and enter a state of permanent growth arrest without undergoing CELL DEATH. Senescence can be induced by DNA DAMAGE or other cellular stresses, such as OXIDATIVE STRESS.

A diverse group of lung diseases that affect the lung parenchyma. They are characterized by an initial inflammation of PULMONARY ALVEOLI that extends to the interstitium and beyond leading to diffuse PULMONARY FIBROSIS. Interstitial lung diseases are classified by their etiology (known or unknown causes), and radiological-pathological features.

Any disorder marked by obstruction of conducting airways of the lung. AIRWAY OBSTRUCTION may be acute, chronic, intermittent, or persistent.
