Peroxiredoxin I (Prx I) plays an important role as a reactive oxygen species (ROS) scavenger in protecting and maintaining cellular homeostasis; however, the underlying mechanisms are not well understood. Here, we identified a critical role of Prx I in protecting cells against ROS-mediated cellular senescence by suppression of p16INK4a expression. Compared to wild-type mouse embryonic fibroblasts (WT-MEFs), Prx I-/- MEFs exhibited senescence-associated phenotypes. Moreover, the aged Prx I-/- mice showed an increased number of cells with senescence associated-モ-galactosidase (SA-モ-gal) activity in a variety of tissues. Increased ROS levels and SA-モ-gal activity in Prx I-/- MEFs and reduction with a chemical antioxidant further supported an essential role for Prx I peroxidase activity in cellular senescence that is mediated by oxidative stress. The up-regulation of p16INK4a expression in Prx I-/- and suppression by overexpression of Prx I indicate that Prx I possibly modulate cellular senescence through ROS/p16INK4a pathway.
