El primer Atlas transcriptómico unicelular del envejecimiento ovárico de primates

31/01/2020 - Debido a la tendencia moderna de posponer la maternidad hasta más adelante en la vida, un número creciente de mujeres experimenta problemas de infertilidad. La infertilidad probablemente se debe a la disminución de los ovarios relacionada con la edad, pero los mecanismos moleculares que conducen a esta disminución no han sido claros. Científicos del Instituto Salk (EE. UU.) y China han descubierto, con un detalle sin precedentes, cómo envejecen los ovarios en primates no humanos. Los hallazgos, publicados en Cell el 30 de enero de 2020 (http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.cell.2020.01.009), revelan varios genes que podrían usarse como biomarcadores y apuntan a objetivos terapéuticos para diagnosticar y tratar la infertilidad femenina y las enfermedades ováricas asociadas con la edad, como el cáncer de ovario, en humanos. El resultado es "el primer análisis a fondo del envejecimiento de los ovarios en el ámbito de una sola célula en primates no humanos", según Izpisúa, del Instituto Salk, en La Jolla, Estados Unidos.
