Scientists from northwestern University (USA) found that a small stress increases the resistance of cells and protects them from aging.
In the course of research by American scientists conducted a screening of 22,000 genes in the round worm C. elegans. It was found that the signals from the cellular energy sources in mild stress to prevent failure of protein quality control (proteostasis).
This prevents the accumulation of damaged proteins that cause aging and development of age-related degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s, Parkinson’s, etc.
