The aging of mitotic cells: regeneration and aging

Today, I will be discussing the aging of mitotic cells. This includes cells which divide throughout life regularly. So in other words, mitotically active cells. And also cells which only divide when subjected to some stimulus, mitotically competent cell. Cells which I will not be discussing today are ones which are post-mitotic. In other words, cells that have differentiated into a form that is constitutively incapable of further division, such as neurons, muscle fibers, for example. Also, today, I shall be discussing a potential to rejuvenate cells that are mitotically competent or mitotically active. In other words, to restore their function and/or their number in the body to a state that resembles what exists in young adults. This can be called regenerative medicine. As you will see, in many cases, it goes beyond the conventional definitions of regenerative medicine.
