TREM2 in Alzheimer's Disease: Microglial Survival and Energy Metabolism

Frontiers in Aging Neuroscience

Dec 12, 2018

Honghua ZhengYun-Wu Zhang

Abstract

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the leading cause of age-related dementia among the elderly population. Recent genetic studies have identified rare variants of the gene encoding the triggering receptor expressed on myeloid cells-2 (TREM2) as significant genetic risk factors in late-onset AD...read more
