Biochemical Society focussed meeting: Glyoxalase Centennial conference
27-29 November 2013, Scarman House, University of Warwick
This event will celebrate 100 years of research on the "Glyoxalase" metabolic pathway.
This year is the centenary of the Glyoxalase System. It provides protection against damaging modification of proteins and nucleotides by methylglyoxal. Methylglyoxal accumulation - “dicarbonyl stress” – may provide the basis for improved understanding of mechanisms of disease and health decline in ageing, and suggest new strategies for therapeutics and functional food development.
