Abstract

Inhalation of welding fume (WF) can result in the deposition of toxic metals, such as manganese (Mn), in the brain and may cause neurological changes in exposed workers. Alterations in telomere length are indicative of cellular aging and, possibly, neurodegeneration. Here, we investigat...read more

Neurocutaneous Syndromes

Neurocutaneous syndromes include congenital disorders involving tumor growth in the brain, spinal cord, organs, skin, and bones. These syndromes include tuberous sclerosis, neurofibromatosis, and Sturge-Weber disease. Find the latest research on neurocutaneous syndromes here.

Alpha-Synuclein Aggregation

Alpha-synucleins are small proteins that are believed to restrict the mobility of synpatic vesicles and inhibit neurotransmitter release. Aggregation of these proteins have been linked to several types of neurodegenerative diseases including dementia with Lewy bodies and Parkinson's disease. Here is the latest research on α-synuclein aggregation.

Tau Aggregation: Genomics

Tau Aggregation is an important characteristic in some neurodegenerative disorders, including Alzheimer’s Disease. Discover the latest research using genomics to understand Tau Aggregation.

Ataxia telangiectasia

Ataxia telangiectasia is a rare neurodegenerative diseases caused by defects in the ATM gene, which is involved in DNA damage recognition and repair pathways. Here is the latest research on this autosomal recessive disease.

Synucleinopathies

Synucleinopathies are neurodegenerative diseases characterized by accumulation of alpha-synuclein protein aggregates in neurons and glial cells. Discover the latest research on synucleinopathies here.
