Neuronal transport mechanism mutations may have a role in Alzheimer’s disease pathology

Researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine have confirmed that mutation-caused dysfunction in a process cells use to transport molecules within the cell plays a previously suspected but underappreciated role in promoting the heritable form of Alzheimer’s disease (AD), but also one that might be remedied with existing therapeutic enzyme inhibitors. The… Continue reading Neuronal transport mechanism mutations may have a role in Alzheimer’s disease pathology
