DNA recombination identified in brain cells, linked to Alzheimer’s.


The neurons of the human brain are widely assumed to be encoded within a constant genome, with set genetic variant products and functions for neuronal networks.  Somatic gene recombination, which change germline DNA sequences to increase molecular diversity, have been documented in non-neuronal cells in the body, however, this has never been seen in the brain.  Now, a study from
