It’s long been known that excess iron is found in the brains of patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD), an incurable neurodegenerative condition that affects motor function. However, the mechanism by … Continue Reading Researchers identify the neurogenetic basis of excess iron in Parkinson’s disease.
Much like a community’s network for garbage handling, cells also have garbage sites called lysosomes, where proteins, which are functioning badly because of age or other reasons, go for degradation … Continue Reading Study links two proteins that help cells eliminate trash to Parkinson’s disease.
Sarcopenia is the aging-related loss of skeletal muscle mass and strength. Preventing sarcopenia is important for maintaining a high quality of life (QOL) in the aged population. However, the molecular … Continue Reading Autophagy defect is linked to loss of muscle in aging for the first time.
Researchers have long wondered what causes people to lose muscle strength as they age and how exercise can prevent it from happening. Now, McMaster University researchers have discovered a key … Continue Reading Researchers identify protein required to maintain muscle mass and strength during aging.
Scientists from The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have uncovered a major contributor to Huntington’s disease, a devastating progressive neurological condition that produces involuntary movements, emotional disturbance and cognitive impairment. Using … Continue Reading Scientists uncover master key in development of Huntington’s Disease.
