Enzyme Motor Drives Neuron Death
Enzyme Motor Drives Neuron Death
News   Aug 07, 2018

Researchers have identified a protein at the head of a pathway that leads to neuronal death. They found that the enzyme HDAC1, normally in the nucleus of cells, is also present in the axons of some neurons. When a degenerative signal is activated, HDAC1 modifies a component of a molecular motor, which then drives a signaling agent down the axon to the neuron’s cell body, killing it.
