TREM2, a diagnostic and therapeutic target for Alzheimer's disease TREM2, a diagnostic and therapeutic target for Alzheimer's disease

Consistently, studies have shown that TREM2 plays a protective role in the pathological process of Alzheimer's disease (AD) by promoting the clearance of tissue debris and the resolution of underlying inflammatory responses while maintaining immune homeostasis in the brain. The observed changes in sTREM2 levels underscore the importance of TREM2 in human neurological disorders and the exciting possibilities of TREM2 as a diagnostic and therapeutic target. ACROBiosystems is providing you a series of high-quality TREM2 proteins to facilitate your research programs.

Single type of neuron found to be responsible for keeping our legs in lockstepWalking is the most natural of movements. Without thinking, we put one foot forward and then the next, on and on, propelling us forward. So, if we're not consciously directing this complex interplay of nerves and muscles, what is?
 
 
 Researchers uncover new findings about the role of tau in neurodegenerative disease
 
Researchers uncover new findings about the role of tau in neurodegenerative diseaseUtilizing cutting-edge proteomics, researchers at the Buck Institute and elsewhere have mapped the "tau interactome" uncovering new findings about the role of tau in neurodegenerative disease. Publishing in Cell, scientists found that mutant tau impacts the function of mitochondria in human neurons.
