Researchers identify role of protein TOM-1 in Alzheimer’s disease pathology

The scientists from the University of California Irvine discovered that reducing the amount of protein TOM-1 in Alzheimer’s rodent models increased pathology, which included increased inflammation, and exacerbated cognitive problems associated with the disease and restoring TOM-1 levels reversed those effects. This research is significant as it explores the molecular pathways underlying Alzheimer’s disease. It… Continue reading Researchers identify role of protein TOM-1 in Alzheimer’s disease pathology
