Signal Transduction Pathways in Ageing

Cathy Slack, Jennifer Tullet

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


It is now widely recognised that ageing and its associated functional decline are regulated by a wide range of molecules that fit into specific cellular pathways. Here, we describe several of the evolutionary conserved cellular signalling pathways that govern organismal ageing and discuss how their identification, and work on the individual molecules that contribute to them, has aided in the design of therapeutic strategies to alleviate the adverse effects of ageing and age-related disease.
