Membranes of Death

Molecule prevents suicide triggered by cell's protein factories

Mitch Leslie

Abstract: When the going gets tough, many cells give up. But some endure if they've got a protein that prevents a particular organelle from sparking cell suicide, new work suggests. The results might eventually help researchers identify ways to curtail cell loss associated with Alzheimer's disease and stroke.
