Muscle aging: a collaboration to understand the impact of the endoplasmic reticulum

The endoplasmic reticulum is a cellular structure responsible for protein synthesis and trafficking. This structure is maintained by a recycling process that eliminates damaged or useless parts. However, it tends to become dysregulated in muscle cells with advancing age. To better understand the consequences in muscle aging, Minchul Kim and Marcus Rüegg, researcher at the Biozentrum of the University of Basel, have launched a joint research project.
