New insight on the degradation of short peptides in the cell is presented in the journal PNAS. The results may be of importance for research on Alzheimer’s disease and other age-related diseases. The article is a result of a collaboration project between researchers at Stockholm University, researchers at SciLifeLab, Karolinska Institutet and researchers at La Trobe Univerity, Australia.
