Intracellular control of asymmetry by designed RNA scaffolds for understanding cellular aging and risk management in single cells

Cells have their own “risk management” strategy: when dividing, they exclude “bad” components from one of the daughter cells. This asymmetrical distribution of damage plays a key role in keeping new cells preserved and increasing the fitness of the overall population. However, it is also believed to be responsible for the aging process. Antoine Decrulle is studying these strategies in order to understand the relationship between asymmetry and the aging process.
