Proteostasis in cardiac health and disease

18:20 EDT 29 Jun 2017 | Nature Publishing

Derailment of cellular protein homeostasis (proteostasis) and loss of protein quality control (PQC) are central factors in ageing and contribute to cardiovascular disease. In this Review, Henning and Brundel describe the mechanisms by which PQC can fail. Targeting PQC to maintain cardiac proteostasis offers a novel therapeutic strategy to promote cardiac health and combat cardiac disease.
