Scientists found a way to postpone cell death

A team of MSU-scientists and the Institute of Theoretical and Experimental Biophysics of Russian Academy of Sciences studied the mechanisms of interaction between the Fas-ligand protein that causes cell death and a respective membrane receptor. It turned out that to initiate the deadly scenario, the ligand needs to contact with a specific protein component of the cell -- caveolin. If the caveolin-binding domain is removed from the molecule of Fas-ligand, cell death may be prevented.
