New mechanism of protein synthesis regulation

A team of researchers led by Agnieszka Chacińska, in cooperation with scientists from the University of Freiburg, Germany, have discovered a new mechanism of protein synthesis regulation. It turns out that defective mitochondria release reactive oxygen species in order to slow down cellular protein synthesis, which allows the cell to recover faster and return to protein homeostasis.
