A protein provides emergency aid

11 junio 2015

Small heat shock proteins ensure that other proteins do not clot, allowing the cell to survive stress. Defects in these ‘small helpers’ are associated with medical conditions like cataracts and cancer. Now, scientists have characterized a small heat shock protein responsible for embryonic development in the Caenorhabditis elegans nematode. Presumably, a similar protein exists also in humans.
