  5. 5. Damage Segregation and Cellular Rejuvenation in Saccharomyces cerevisiae

    Author : Sandra Malmgren Hill; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Aging; protein damage; quality control; metacaspase; aggregates; segregation; vacuole;

    Abstract : The process of aging is defined as a time-dependent decline in cellular functionality, and aging is thought to have evolved as organisms were optimized for reproduction, at the cost of an imperfect repair and maintenance system. As a consequence, different kinds of dysfunctional components and damage accumulate over time. READ MORE
