How the "Australian" Mutation Leads to Alzheimer's Disease

A team of scientists from MIPT and IBCh RAS studied one hereditary genetic mutation to discover general molecular mechanisms that may lead both to early onset of Alzheimer's disease and to the form of the disease caused by age-related changes in human body. Understanding these mechanisms is necessary for developing new targeted treatments for this neurodegenerative disease that is becoming ever more widespread across the developed countries' aging populations.
