Cell-surface receptor battles compounds that promote aging by thwarting its alter ego
Abstract: A receptor protein that snares damaged molecules might spare cells from a sticky situation. According to a new study, the protein guards against harmful compounds that result from reactions between sugars and amino acids. This protective molecule helps cells absorb and destroy the ruinous sugar compounds and dampens inflammation.
