Mechanisms of Axon Degeneration

The mechanism of axonal degeneration is still poorly understood, but studies in animal models have suggested some cellular and molecular mechanisms responsible. The degeneration of axons in the CNS has been found to be characteristic of many neurodegenerative diseases. Discover the latest research on the mechanisms of axon degeneration here.

ALS

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as motor neuron disease, is associated with the death of neurons that control voluntary muscles. Discover the latest research on ALS here.

ALS & FTD: TDP-43

ALS shares with a considerable proportion of FTD cases the same neuropathological substrate, namely, inclusions of abnormally phosphorylated protein tdp-43 (ptdp-43). Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to ptdp-43 and these diseases.

ALS - Pathogenic Mechanisms

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder characterized by muscle weakness. Here is the latest research investigating pathogenic mechanisms that underlie this genetically heterogeneous disorder.

ALS - Phenotypes

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder characterized by muscle weakness. Here is the latest research investigating phenotypes associated with this genetically heterogeneous disorder.

ALS: Genetics

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder characterized by muscle weakness. ALS is a genetically heterogeneous disorder with several causative genes. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to the genetics of this disease.

ALS: Prions

Prions are misfolded proteins which characterize several fatal neurodegenerative diseases. Prion-like mechanisms are associated with the pathogenesis of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to this disease.

ALS: Stress Granules

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is a neurodegenerative disease characterized by cytoplasmic protein aggregates within motor neurons. TDP-43 is an ALS-linked protein that is known to regulate splicing and storage of specific mRNAs into stress granules, which have been implicated in formation of ALS protein aggregates. Here is the latest research.

ALS: Therapies

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as motor neuron disease, is associated with the death of neurons that control voluntary muscles. Discover the latest research on ALS therapies here.

ALS: Transposon de-silencing

Transposon silencing is a form of transcriptional gene silencing. These gene silencing mechanisms are impaired in Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to transposon silencing and this disease.

Age-related Dementia

Age-related dementia (Alzheimer's disease) results from the destructive impact of the pulse on cerebral vasculature. Evidence is reviewed that the neuropathology of the dementia is caused by the breakdown of small cerebral vessels (silent microbleeds), that the microbleeds result from pulse-induced damage to the cerebral vessels, and that pulse becomes increasingly destructive with age, because of the age-related stiffening of the aorta and great arteries, which causes an increase in the intensity of the pressure pulse. Discover the latest research on age-related dementia here.
