With the aid of CRISPR gene editing techniques, researchers have identified a new biomarker for Alzheimer's disease. The study reports a deficiency of the protein STIM1 could be implicated in the sporadic version of the neurodegenerative disease.
Using CRISPR gene editing techniques, researchers create modified skin grafts that rapidly degrade cocaine and reduce drug seeking behaviors in mouse models of addiction.
Researchers report that, at the molecular levels, aging may have originated at the beginning of the evolution of life. They suggest when it comes to genes, aging may not always be a negative trait, and may help an organism to survive.
Researchers report on why some people may experience increasing levels of aggression at the end of the day. The study reports the scientists have developed new gene editing tools to help turn of cells that cause sundowning behaviors.
Using CRISPR, researchers have identified a new set of genes that may be implicated in both ALS and frontotemporal dementia.
Rockefeller University researchers reveal Huntington's neurons are much larger than healthy cells.
