Seminars on Medicine - Protein Recycling: Its Role in Human Biology and Disease - Dec 2008

Seminar 6 - Protein Recycling: Its Role in Human Biology and Disease - Dec 2008

Raymond Deshaies, professor of biology at Caltech and an investigator at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, presented a Watson Lecture in which he explained how drugs that target protein recycling can extend lifespan in some cancer patients and may have applications in treating diseases of the immune system. Protein recycling is used to eliminate damaged proteins as well as those that have carried out their chemical task and are no longer needed.
