Prion diseases are fatal, transmissible, neurodegenerative diseases caused by the misfolding of the prion protein (prp). Here is the latest research on prion diseases.
Prions are misfolded proteins which characterize several fatal neurodegenerative diseases. Prion-like mechanisms are associated with the pathogenesis of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). Here is the latest research on ALS and prions.
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.
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.
Alzheimer's disease is a neurodegenerative disease. Discover genetic and epigenetic aspects of Alzheimer’s disease, including genetic markers and genomic structural variations with this feed.
Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.
