Abstract

Neurodegeneration entails progressive loss of neuronal structure as well as function leading to cognitive failure, apathy, anxiety, irregular body movements, mood swing and ageing. Proteomic dysregulation is considered the key factor for neurodegeneration. Mechanisms involving deregulat...read more

Parkinson's Disease

Parkinson's Disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder characterized by loss of muscle control, including trembling of the limbs and impaired balance. Here is the latest research.

Galectins & Alpha-Synuclein

Galectins proteins bind to sugar molecules and mediate the cellular response to endocytic vesicles. It is believed that some galectin proteins are involved in microglia activation induced by α-synuclein. Here is the latest research on galectins and alpha-synuclein.

Parkinson's Disease: Alpha-Synuclein

Alpha-synuclein is an integral component of Lewy bodies which are comprised of protein clumps and are a pathological hallmark of Parkinson’s disease. Here is the latest research.

Astrocytes & Huntington’s Disease

Astrocytes are abundant within the central nervous system and their dysfunction has been thought to be an important contributor to some neurodegenerative diseases, in particular Huntington’s disease. Damage to these cells may make neurons more susceptible to degeneration. Here is the latest research on astrocytes and Huntington’s disease.

Chaperones & Protein Folding

Chaperones are proteins that play an essential role in protein folding, stability, assembly, and degradation. Their depletion or dysfunction has been implicated in protein folding disorders. Here is the latest research.

Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease

Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease is a fatal neurodegenerative disease caused due to aggregation and accumulation of misfolded prion proteins. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to this disease.

Prion Diseases: strain diversity and neurotoxicity

Prions are misfolded proteins which characterize several fatal neurodegenerative diseases. Distinct prion strains are associated with different prion protein conformations and glycosylation patterns and associate with disease progression and severity. Here is the latest research on strain diversity and neurotoxicity in prion diseases.

Alzheimer's disease is a chronic neurodegenerative disease. This feed focuses on the underlying role of Tau proteins and TAR DNA-binding protein 43, as well as other genetic factors, in Alzheimer's.

Neuronal and Network Dysfunction In Neurodegeneration

This feed focuses on neuronal and network dysfunction in neurodegenerative disorders and the effects of tauopathies on synapses and memory.

Diffuse Neurofibrillary Tangles with Calcification

Diffuse Neurofibrillary Tangles with Calcification (DNTC) is a rare form of presenile dementia. Here is the latest research.

Prion Disease: Cholesterol

The Prion Disease: Cholesterol feed describes the role cholesterol plays in the conversion and transmission of prion. Discover the latest research on the role of cholesterol in prion disease here.

Prion diseases or transmissible spongiform encephalopathies are rare progressive neurogenerative diseases caused by misfolded prion proteins. Here is the latest research in this domain.

Frontotemporal Lobar Degeneration

Frontotemporal lobar degeneration or frontotemporal dementia refers to a group of uncommon disorders that occur as a result of progressive nerve cell loss in the frontal and temporal lobes of the brain. Here is the latest research.

Astrocytes

Astrocytes are glial cells that support the blood-brain barrier, facilitate neurotransmission, provide nutrients to neurons, and help repair damaged nervous tissues. Here is the latest research.

Cytoskeletal & Motor Biophysics

Cytoskeletal motors of the dynein, kinesin and myosin superfamilies maintain and adapt subcellular organelle organization to meet functional demands and support the vesicular transport of material between organelles. Here is the latest research on cytoskeletal and motor biophysics.

Astrocytes and Neurodegeneration

Astrocytes are important for the health and function of the central nervous system. When these cells stop functioning properly, either through gain of function or loss of homeostatic controls, neurodegenerative diseases can occur. Here is the latest research on astrocytes and neurodegeneration.

Gut Microbiome & the Brain

Microbes in the gut communicate with the central nervous system (CNS) via at least three parallel and interacting channels including endocrine, nervous, and immune signaling. Here is the latest research on the brain-gut-microbiome axis.

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.
