Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Discovered in plants a mechanism that corrects defects in protein folding

(Centre for Research in Agricultural Genomics ) Discovered in plants a mechanism that corrects defects in proteins such as those that cause Alzheimer's and Parkinson's Diseases in humans. Defective protein folding causes nervous system diseases in humans and hinders the proper functioning of the chloroplasts in plants.The aggregation of misfolded proteins in the chloroplasts sends a SOS signal to the nucleus to repair them in few hours. This newly described mechanism uses molecular components that also protect plants against excess heat.
