p97 protein’s role in the human body includes disposing of proteins that are already past their shelf life. They work with co-factors or binding partners which help them target proteins that need to be eliminated. In a study conducted by experts from the Tufts University School of Medicine, they’ve disclosed the fundamental biology of p97 while emphasizing its role on keeping cellular organelles in sync with one another.
With these conclusions, the team explores human neurons and what happens when there are p97 mutations and what can be done to help these neurons survive.
