The SARM1 protein triggers a cascade of degeneration associated with Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and other neurodegenerative diseases. Researchers hope new drugs can be developed to directly target this protein to fight neurodegeneration.
A new study into human and plant cell apoptosis could provide new avenues for the development of treatments for neurodegenerative diseases, and help develop disease-resistant plants.
A new study reveals a certain immune response, which usually helps cells recognize and kill viral infections, can sometimes cause apoptosis in neurons.
Researchers report they have identified a pathway implicated in the death of nerve cells.
Findings could have broad therapeutic potential for many neurodegenerative diseases. Degeneration of the axon and synapse, the slender projection through...
