Humoral control of proteostasis -pathways towards longevity

Abstract: As an organism ages, its proteins face an increasing severity in the challenges they receive from extrinsic and intrinsic environmental perturbations (1, 2). Chaperones become dysregulated, while the degradation machineries stop working properly. The protein accumulates damage and starts […]
