Abstract

Hypoxia endangers the survival of cells and organisms. Mutations in an enzyme that attaches amino acids to tRNAs to supply protein synthesis confer resistance to hypoxia in C. elegans. By slowing down protein synthesis (a major consumer of energy), such mutations may save valuable energy and/or prevent accumulation of malfolded proteins.
