Protein aggregates save cells during aging

8 mayo 2015

As organisms age, a gradual loss of cellular protein quality control occurs. This results in increased production of toxic protein clumps, so-called aggregates. Using a comprehensive approach, researchers have now analyzed changes in protein composition during aging. The results show that the quantities of proteins undergo a severe shift. This also sheds new light on the origin and function of protein aggregates.
