If every day our editorial team takes care of informing readers with articles on health, the merit is also of scientific research. And the Italian one occupies great importance. Our researchers and scientists are truly sought after and appreciated overseas. Testimony is given by the very recent Nobel Prize in Physics to the Italian Doctor Giorgio Parisi. Brexit also bears witness to the fact that Italians are appreciated abroad as researchers and scholars. After breaking away from Europe amid a thousand controversies, the British realized the risk of losing many Italian scientists. And, precisely in this regard, we will see in this article how more and more Italian scientists are working on the protein that inhibits tumors and Alzheimer’s.
An important protection to the cell nucleus
Pin1 is the name of this protein whose name seems to belong more to mobile telephony than to science. Still, we could define this protein as a guardian of our brain. According to not only Italian but also international studies, Pin1 appears to be able to protect the cell nucleus from aging. Technically, in fact, there could be a link between the degeneration of the cell nucleus that leads to the tumor and neurodegenerative diseases. In fact, laboratory data argues that when this protein increases exponentially, tumors are more likely to form. In the case of its absence, however, our body is exposed to diseases such as Alzheimer’s.

So, even though it is a complex but absolutely important issue, we could truly define the Pin1 protein as the “guardian of cells”. Scientists also agree that this protein is able to defend us from the stress of oxidation and therefore aging. Pin1 would also be a sort of regulator of other proteins to preserve our DNA. In practice, it would also function as a “controller” of the natural stresses that affect us as we age. Similarly, as seen above, its direct correlation with cancer is being studied.
According to international studies, if we do these jobs we could be more exposed to cancer
