This number is often referred to as the Hayflick limit. Cellular senescence is associated with aging and longevity and has also been termed replicative senescence. The Hayflick limit for dividing cells may in part be determined by the length of the cells’ telomeres (see Chapter 9). Telomeres are noncoding regions at the tips of chromosomes. Cell division requires the duplication of chromosomes, but each time a chromosome reproduces itself, it loses a part of the telomere (telomere attrition). Once a cell’s telomeres reach a critically short length, the cell can no longer replicate its chromosomes and thus will stop dividing.
