This feed focuses on genetic aspects of neurodegeneration and aging, with emphasis on the role of protein aggregates in neurodegenerative diseases including Alzhiemer’s. Here is the latest research.
The discovery of autophagy-related ('ATG') proteins in the 1990s greatly advanced the mechanistic understanding of autophagy and clarified the fact that autophagy serves important roles in various biological processes.
Dementias are a group of conditions, including Alzheimer's disease, vascular dementia, and frontotemporal dementia, characterized by deficiencies in cognitive abilities. Age-related dementia refers to dementias that occur in older individuals, usually 60+ years old, in contrast to early-onset dementia. Follow the latest research on age-related dementia here.
This feed focuses on the role of the aging process on developing diabetes.
Age is associated with many metabolic disorders including cardiovascular diseases, type 2 diabetes, stroke and heart disease. The mediators in aging process have been suggested to play a part in the cellular processes responsible for these metabolic disorders. Here is the latest research on aging-associated metabolic disorders.
Apolipoprotein E (APOE) polymorphic alleles are major genetic risk factors for Alzheimer's disease. Discover the latest research on APOE and other genetic determinants of Alzheimer's disease here.
Amyloid precursor protein (APP) proteolysis is critical for the development of Alzheimer's disease, a neurodegenerative disease associated with accumulation of amyloid plaques in the brain. Here is the latest research on APP and Alzheimer's disease.
Alzheimer's disease is a neurodegenerative disease associated with the accumulation of amyloid plaques in the brain; these plaques are comprised of amyloid beta deposits. Here is the latest research in this field.
Alzheimer's disease is a neurodegenerative disease which can be studied using various experimental systems. This feed focuses on animal models used for Alzheimer's disease research.
Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative disease characterized by progressive cognitive and behavioral decline. Targeting markers in the earliest stages of the disease may mitigate the progression of AD. This feed focuses on early diagnosis and markers, as well as environmental, pharmacological, and drug-response biomarkers associated with this disease.
Dysfunctional endosomal trafficking may be associated with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) pathology. Targeting the endosome may advance treatment options for AD. Here is the latest research on endosomes and AD.
