    How to use "Senescent" in context?


    Scientifically, senescent cells are cells that have stopped dividing but have not yet perished. Though they have stopped short of dying, senescent cells have lost the capacity to remodel and grow, leading to them accumulating damage and becoming dysfunctional. At present, there is no single cause or mechanism behind the development of senescent cells, with multiple factors likely contributing. However, their accumulation and continued presence has been identified as one of the key contributors to the aging process.

    Though senescent cells have been considered a problem for a long time, their potential contributions to aging have only recently been recognized.
