Upregulation of a protein in the brains of patients with neurodegenerative diseases due to its altered membrane binding

The proteins of the Neuronal Calcium Sensor (NCS) family act as calcium dependent molecular switches in order to maintain the communication between the brain cells. Most of NCS proteins are involved in neurodegenerative diseases resulting from calcium

The environmental toxin BMAA detected in humans – Cause of neurodegenerative diseases?

Alzheimer´s disease, Parkinson´s disease and ALS ( amyotrophic lateral sclerosis ) are the most common neurodegenerative diseases in the world, and cause tremendous human suffering. Only about ten percent of the cases are hereditary, while the rest

Get yourself to eat your way out of cancer and neurodegenerative diseases

A cells health is maintained by numerous biological processes one of which termed autophagy (or self-eating) involves the breakdown of parts of the cell in an orderly manner, this is in order to generate energy and replace

Endocrine regulation of Alzheimer’s disease. The Achilles heel of dementia and other neurological conditions

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common disorder of the central nervous system and the most frequent cause of devastating dementia in the elderly. Typified by loss of memory and by cognitive decline, AD lowers the quality

ZNRF1: a key molecule activated by reactive oxygen species to cause neuronal degeneration

Neurons, the major component of our brain, have long processes (called “axons” and “dendrites”) to communicate with other neurons and cells. In many brain diseases that old people get suffered from, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease,
