2014 S. Karger AG, Basel The Concept of Aging of Proliferative Cells The study of aging of proliferative cells was initiated by the work of Hayflick and Moorhead [1] who proposed that the loss of the division potential of human fibroblasts through proliferation in vitro is an expression of aging at the cellular level. After a given number of population doublings, cells enter a stage of irreversible growth arrest, which was called senescence. The first experiments attempting to understand the kinetics of proliferation of these cell populations concluded that there is an entire spectrum of cells with different cycling probabilities, which evolve with an increasing heterogeneity [2–5].

The conflicting results in this case and others could be due to the time the cells were harvested; the data can vary if the cells are used in pre-phase IV or on the contrary deep into phase IV. The existence of different mechanisms leading to the postmitotic states was disregarded claiming that there are different pathways to cell senescence. Quest for the ‘Senescent Cell’ in vivo A search started for markers of the senescent cell to check for its presence in vivo; the lysosomal enzyme β-galactosidase was chosen to detect postmitotic cells [103].
