Study Reveals Proteins Most Associated With Aging

Dill Lab Team

Certain proteins known to be associated with aging and age-related diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease and cancer are also at a high risk for destabilization caused by oxidation. This finding by a team of researchers at the Laufer Center for Physical and Quantitative Biology at Stony Brook University provides an understanding of how oxidative damage, which is a natural process in aging cells, affects proteins. It could also prove to be a foundation to a better understanding of age-related diseases. The paper, titled “Highly charged proteins: the Achilles’ heel of ageing proteoms,” is published in the journal Structure.
