(Excerpt from original article posted here) ANN ARBOR—Some stress at a young age could actually lead to a longer life, new research shows. University of Michigan researchers have discovered that oxidative stress experienced early in life increases subsequent stress resistance […]
First Aid for Stressed Proteins Scientists from University of Michigan and Göttingen (Germany) unravel how a versatile protein, GET3, protects cells from oxygen damage. Published online in Molecular Cell.
Researchers funded by the National Institutes of Health have made strides in understanding exactly how bleach kills bacteria—and how bacteria’s own defenses can protect against the cellular stress caused by bleach. The insights gained may lead to the development of […]
The redox-regulated chaperone Hsp33 protects organisms against oxidative stress that leads to protein unfolding. Activation of Hsp33 is triggered by the oxidative unfolding of its own redox-sensor domain…
