Neuronal 'traffic jam' marks early Alzheimer's disease

...t produced Alzheimer's-like plaques and subsequent neural degeneration. The scientists' analyses of the neurons in those mice revealed clear defects, said Goldstein. "What we saw quite early in the life of those animals -- well before any plaque deposition -- were obvious axonal defects," said Goldstein. "...

Bound for destruction: Ubiquitination protects against improper Notch signaling

...h signaling is known to beimportant in a number of neural cell fate determination anddevelopmental processes, and is conserved in species from human toroundworm. In all processes in which it participates, Notch signalingshows the ability to sense a small change in cell fate and amplify it,acting as a sort o...

Vital step in cellular migration described by UCSD medical researchers

...oted that alpha4 integrins are widely expressed in neural crest cells, immune system leukocytes (such as T cells), striated and smooth muscle, and neurons. For this reason, they believe the mechanism used by alpha4 integrins to localize Rac activity may participate in a wide variety of cell migratory and pa...

Gene Therapy For Parkinson's Disease Moves Forward In Animals

...troduction can provide insight into how to protect neural cells.

Key Trigger Of Opioid Withdrawal Symptoms Found

...tworks of neurons in the brain is the basis of all neural activity. Transporter molecules are the proteins that retrieve neurotransmitter molecules from the spaces between neurons after they trigger nerve impulse, to reload the neuron for its next signaling burst. Bagley and her colleagues also discovered ...
