Directly Reprogrammed Human Neurons Retain Aging-Associated Transcriptomic Signatures and Reveal Age-Related Nucleocytoplasmic Defects

Bhaskar Chanda Stem Cell Mertens and colleagues compare transcriptomes of human fibroblasts, induced neurons (iNs), iPSCs, iPSC-derived neurons, and brain samples from a broad range of aged donors, finding that iNs retain donor aging signatures, while iPSCs are rejuvenated. RanBP17 was consistently decreased during aging, leading to compromised nucleocytoplasmic compartmentalization in aged human cells.
