While at AAIC 2017 in London, Lauren Pulling (Editor, NC) spoke to Julie Williams about her extensive work in Alzheimer’s genetics and risk factors.
The goal of this study was to test the state of methylation of transcription start positions in DNA that are actively involved in transcription.
Researchers at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (Birmingham, AL, USA) have demonstrated that a small-molecule BDNF mimetic, previously shown to aid respiratory problems in Rett Syndrome, also improves spatial memory and motor function.
This study generates a novel dataset of associations for disorders such as major depression and schizophrenia, providing a global perspective for their genetic etiology.
Researchers have identified a network of genes expressed by myeloid cells that are linked to late-onset Alzheimer’s disease (AD).
Investigators hope that their findings will assist in the development of targeted treatments for pediatric brain cancers.
An international research team have shown that gene editing reverses Huntington’s symptoms without off-target effects in a mouse model.
Research suggests that family history explains conflicting study results for Alzheimer’s disease risk gene TOMM40.
