NetWalker Finds Protein Damage Clues

Friday, July 8th, 2011

Reactive molecules generated in the body – by toxic drugs, environmental chemicals and even the body’s own natural processes – can attack and chemically modify proteins to produce protein “adducts” which may play a role in human diseases. But just how these adducts are involved in toxicity and cellular responses to oxidant damage is unclear. […]
