Environmental factors have become of major
concern to mitophagy and kidney disease in
individuals from the developing world. Heat
shock gene Sirt 1 inactivation leads to protein
aggregation and chronic kidney disease. Food
consumption in the developing world is of major
interest to reverse and stabilize uncontrolled
protein aggregation and maintain Sirt 1
activation to prevent kidney cell apoptosis in
these populations.
