Data obtained from genetically modified mouse models suggest a detrimental role for p16High senescent cells in physiological aging and age-related pathologies. Our recent analysis of aging mice revealed a continuous and noticeable accumulation of liver sinusoid endothelial cells (LSECs) expressing numerous senescence markers, including p16. At early stage, senescent LSECs show an enhanced ability to clear macromolecular waste and toxins including oxidized LDL (oxLDL). Later in life, however, the efficiency of this important detoxifying function rapidly declines potentially due to increased endothelial thickness and senescence-induced silencing of scavenger receptors and endocytosis genes. This inability to detoxify toxins and macromolecular waste, which can be further exacerbated by increased intestinal leakiness with age, might be an important contributing factor to animal death. Here, we propose how LSEC senescence could serve as an endogenous clock that ultimately controls longevity and outline some of the possible approaches to extend the lifespan.
