New Class of Highly Effective Inhibitors Protects against Neurodegeneration

Neurobiologists decode central mechanism of degenerative processes in the brains of mouse models and develop new principle for therapeutic agents

12-Oct-2020

Neurobiologists at Heidelberg University have discovered how a special receptor at neuronal junctions that normally activates a protective genetic programme can lead to nerve cell death when located outside synapses. Their fundamental findings on neurodegenerative processes simultaneously led the ...
