Waspie_Dwarf Posted April 1 #1 Share Posted April 1 (IP: Staff) · New insights into how cells respond to altered gravity experienced in space Researchers show that the protein modifier SUMO helps cells adjust to microgravity stresses Quote A new study has revealed insights into how cells sense and respond to the weightlessness experienced in space. The information could be useful for keeping astronauts healthy on future space missions. The gravity conditions in space, known as microgravity, trigger a unique set of cellular stress responses. In the new work, researchers found that the protein modifier SUMO plays a key role in cellular adaptation to simulated microgravity.
