      Putting the Brakes on Alzheimer’s Disease

      by
      A loss of protein function in neurons may lead to Alzheimer’s Disease. Rutgers researcher Karl Herrup and colleagues at Case Western Reserve University have discovered that a protein that suppresses cell division in brain cells effectively “puts the brakes” on the dementia that comes with Alzheimer’s disease (AD). When the...
