Frontiers in Cell Biology: Quality Control

Cells are the basic building blocks of living organisms, and the cell can be pictured as a very complicated factory of life. In order to maintain an effective internal regime and to prevent inappropriate attack by external factors, the cell needs quality control mechanisms to identify, correct, and prevent mistakes in its ongoing processes. The consequences of faulty quality control range from the cell death of neurodegeneration to the uncontrolled cell growth that is cancer. This article introduces a special containing reviews that describe four key processes in the cell and examine what is known about their quality control mechanisms.
