The human nervous system is made up of an astonishing diversity of neurons. And yet only a very small number of proteins are needed to generate and determine the identity … Continue Reading Researchers identify a previously unknown regulatory mechanism of neurogenesis.
Using proteomics techniques to study injured optic nerves, researchers at Boston Children’s Hospital have identified previously unrecognized proteins and pathways involved in nerve regeneration. The new study showed that adding … Continue Reading Researchers see an unprecedented degree of nerve regeneration using proteomics.
Amyloid precursor protein (APP) modulates the many processes through which newborn neurons are generated in the adult brain, state researchers from Baylor College of Medicine in a new study. An … Continue Reading Dysfunctional precursor protein impairs making of new neurons in brain.
