Wild Type Yeast Cells after Heat Shock

One factor that is known to correlate with replicative age is the buildup of aggregates formed by damaged proteins. To learn more about the movement and fate of damaged proteins in dividing yeast cells, the researchers used live-cell imaging to record the movement of thousands of heat-shock induced protein aggregates.
