Medical - Medical (general) / Lou Gehrig's Disease
|English term or phrase: cellular housekeeping agent|
I was reading a NY Times article about Lou Gehrig's Disease and I found this term "cellular housekeeping agent" I would like to know what would be a good transaltion into Spanish.
The complete sentence is: A cellular housekeeping agent that normally helps cells to clear away proteins that are damaged or misfolded.
I understand what it means, but I am not sure if you can use : Un agente limpiador de las celulas que las ayuda a eliminar las proteinas dañadas o mal plegadas.
Thanks in advance!!
|mecanismo de selección celular|
although not a medical term, as such , it may be inferred that said mechanism exists to select "the fittest". In fact, in medical terminology, this mechanism is called "homeostasis" and you might look it up and see how you can adapt it. It needs a bit of knowledge to understand the term, but I am sure you will catch it. Good luck!

agente de depuración celular
Me da la impresión que el escrito se refiere a algún "agente "terapéutico" nuevo usado en la enfermedad de marras.
Las proteínas dañadas referidas alteran sin duda el funcionamiento celular y de allí la importancia de eliminarlas.
