Hexosamine metabolites enhance protein quality control and longevity

Abstract: Ageing is a major risk factor for numerous diseases, including neurodegeneration, which can result from a progressive decline in cellular protein homeostasis. We have recently discovered that activation of the hexosamine pathway (HP) through gain-of-function (gof) mutations in glucosamine-fructose […]
