Abstract: Cellular senescence, a form of cell cycle arrest, is one of the cellular responses to different types of exogenous and endogenous damage. The senescence phenotype can be induced in vitro by oncogene overexpression and/or DNA damage. Recently, we have reported a novel mechanism of cellular senescence induction by mild genotoxic stress. Specifically, we have shown that the formation of a small number of DNA lesions in normal and cancer cells during S phase leads to cellular senescence-like arrest within the same…
