Researchers Reduce Neurodegeneration in Huntington's Stem Cell Model

The image shows a C. elegans model of Huntington's disease under the microscope. When the scientists silence the protein UBR5, they see a dramatic increase in the number of toxic protein aggregates in the neurons. The green areas are the protein aggregates.

Alzheimer's Risk Gene Impairs Brain's Immune Cells

News

A study carried out with a new human stem cell-derived model reveals that the most prevalent genetic risk factor of Alzheimer's disease (AD), apolipoprotein E4 (APOE4), impairs the function of human brain immune cells, microglia. These findings pave the way for new, effective treatment approaches for AD. The results were published in Stem Cell Reports.
