Chronic inflammation, or ‘inflammaging’, is a key process in age-related diseases, and identification of the molecular players involved is a top priority. Cai and Han identified an evolutionary conserved functional lncRNA able to modulate the release of inflammatory SASP molecules from senescent cells through the NF-κB pathway.
