ge of 12 years. It is caused by mutations in the LMNA gene that lead to the production of a mutant protein known as progerin. Recently, progerin was found at low levels in normal human cells and tissues, but whether it has a role in normal aging has not been determined. Collins and colleagues have now found that progerin production is triggered in normal human cells undergoing senescence the process by which normal cells lose their capacity to divide and by which they have their lifespan limited. Importantly, progerin production was only triggered during cellular senescence induced by shortening of telomeres the specialized structures at the ends of chromosomes, gradual loss of which activates senescence. These data indicate that telomere dysfunction and progerin production cooperate during the induction of cell senescence, demonstrating that understanding of the premature aging processes in individuals with HGPS is likely to provide insight into the normal aging process.

INFLAMMATION: To be M1 or to be M2: the protein KLF4 decides for macrophages

Macrophages are cells critical for both immune defense against invading microbes and inflammation. They are currently classified as either M1 or M2, with M1 macrophages being considered pro-inflammatory and M2 macrophages anti-inflammatory. A team of researchers, led by Mukesh Jain, at Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, has now identified
