stress

DELE1 : Gene coding for a protein which can be seen as a messenger capable of relaying a stress signal from the mitochondrion to the cell. This ‘integrated stress response’ indicates to the cell that mitochondria need help, and the cell will do its best to fix the situation.

protrusion

CDHR2: Gene coding for a protein involved in the formation of microvilli on the surface of some epithelial cells.

Help !

DELE1 : key activator of the integrated stress response following mitochondrial problems. This indicates to the cell that mitochondria need help, and the cell will do its best to fix the situation.

skin colour

SLC45A2: Gene involved in the synthesis of melanin, a pigment found in our skin, our hair and the iris of our eyes.

remembering to forget

RGS14: This gene is involved in memory and forgetfulness. The act of forgetting helps to keep our memory unburdened.

silencing proteins

DROSHA: This gene is involved in regulating the synthesis of certain proteins.
