Long-lived Proteins in Human Aging and Disease. Edition No. 1

  • ID: 5186260
  • Book
  • February 2021
  • 224 Pages
  • John Wiley and Sons Ltd
This authoritative overview on an emerging topic in the molecular life sciences covers all aspects of the aging of (long-lived) proteins. It describes the molecular mechanisms of aging on the protein level, in particular the most common side chain modifications and includes analytical methods to study protein half-life and the accumulation of modifications. Finally, the impact of protein aging on several age-related disases in humans is dissected, and their role in limiting human lifespan is discussed.
