A Government Shredder?

a: Proteasome ~
b: big shredder

What: "The proteasome is like a big shredder which grinds up proteins that are no longer needed or which have become misfolded or degraded," says Fushman. "It controls the cell life cycle, and we know that if it isn't functioning properly, it could lead to the development of cancer, or neurological diseases like Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, or Huntington's, or problems with the immune response."
