Radiation-induced senescence-like growth arrest is independent of telomere shortening [68]. No significant [19] or only a slight telomere shortening [20] was observed in senescence-like induced growth arrest of human fibroblasts after hydrogen peroxide stress. Telomere biology seems to vary with the species in a way unrelated with aging and with the respective cell proliferation life span in vitro. In non-human primates such as rhesus monkey, Japanese monkey, crab-eating monkey, chimpanzee, and orangutan, TRF length was more than double that of human somatic tissues [69].
