Policing your proteins: how cells enforce quality control

Cambridge Academy for Science and Technology, Robinson Way (Close to the Junction of Robinson Way and Long Road), CB2 0SZ

Every cell needs a particular set of protein machines to do its work: intestinal cells send out digestive enzymes to consume food; cells of the pancreas put insulin into the blood stream. Dr Liz Miller, MRC-LMB studies how individual cells make sure that these protein machines are correctly assembled before sorting them to the correct place for their onward journey, a process known as protein quality control.
