Cold shock protein
Cold shock proteins (CSP) are a family of proteins that are produced by cells in response to exposure to stressful conditions, in particular cold. Cold shock proteins include RNA binding motif 3 (RBM3)
RNA binding motif 3 (RBM3)[edit | edit source]
RBM3 may improve neurological health. In rodents, it has been linked linked to the regeneration of synapses In a mouse model of Alzheimer's disease and prion disease, cooling induced upregulation of RBM3 and resulted in delayed on-set of diseases and prolonged survial.
