About this Research Topic
Cellular senescence with multiple factors involved is currently one of the fastest-growing branches of science, including ROS accumulation, telomere shortening, DNA damage, gene senescence and biomacromolecule cross-link. Senescent cells will experience a decline in function and metabolism, finally leading to organism degeneration.
This Research Topic aims to study the senescence of the nucleus pulposus in its degeneration and IVDD and to explore the molecular mechanisms of nucleus pulposus senescence. Thereby delaying the senescence and degeneration of the nucleus pulposus.
This Research Topic welcomes articles about, but not limited to the followings:
● Novel molecular mechanisms of nucleus pulposus senescence
● Novel indicators of nucleus pulposus senescence for early diagnosis
● Novel targets of nucleus pulposus senescence for precision treatment
Keywords: Nucleus pulposus, senescence, intervertebral disc, degeneration, molecular mechanism
