NIH-funded study finds that quickly clearing away damaged proteins may help prevent neurodegenerative disorders.
“One surprising finding from these experiments was the significance of single cells’ ability to clear mutant huntingtin. It turned out that this ability largely predicted their susceptibility…”
…Recycling is not only good for the environment, it’s good for the brain. A study using rat cells indicates that quickly clearing out defective proteins in the brain may prevent loss of brain cells.

Results of a study in Nature Chemical Biology suggest that the speed at which damaged proteins are cleared from neurons may affect cell survival and may explain why some cells are targeted for death in neurodegenerative disorders. The research was supported by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), part of the National Institutes of Health.
