Jan 19, 2017 08:28 am | Joana Fernandes, PhD
A protein called Nrf2 can help maintain healthy levels of proteins associated with neurodegenerative diseases, including Huntington’s disease, thereby protecting neurons from death, according to new research. Results of the study, “Nrf2 Mitigates LRRK2- And α-synuclein–induced Neurodegeneration By Modulating Proteostasis,” were published in the journal PNAS. Neurodegenerative disorders — such as Huntington’s, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases, or […]
