Clearing of Stress Granules, Linked to Cell Damage in ALS, Detailed

Ubiquitination — the cell’s process of tagging proteins, often to degrade unwanted ones — is essential for the disassembly of stress granules that, by not being cleared, damage cells in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and other neurodegenerative diseases, a study showed. The study, “Ubiquitination is essential for recovery of cellular activities after heat shock,” was published in the journal Science and conducted by scientists at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. A complementary study by this same…
