1997), increase the content of inhibitors like abscisic acid in the leaves and decreased the auxins content (Anisimov and Bulatova, 1982) leading to fruit abscission at the reproductive stage (Zhao and Oosterhuis, 2000) so that senescence started at early growth stages.
These findings indicated that the arrest of cell cycle may contribute to the senescence of primary neurons.
The most promising strategies involve delaying cellular senescence [30]; SASP switch-off [48, 49]; SASP factor modulation [34, 47]; and selective removal or killing of existing senescent cells (senolytics or senotherapy) [25, 54].
It is a fact that senescence is associated with the balance between hormones such as cytokinins and ethylene, and the over expression or suppression of these hormones showed changes in the timing of senescence, accelerating and retarding the process (BUCHANAN-WOLLASTON et al.
