Alzheimer’s Disease and Other Conditions Linked to Prion-Like Proteins

Full article at http://goo.gl/6BIrYs.

A new theory about disorders that attack the brain and spinal column has received a significant boost from scientists at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.

The research is in Neuron. (full access paywall)

Research: “Distinct tau prion strains propagate in cells and mice and define different tauopathies” by Sanders DW, Kaufman SK, DeVos SL, Sharma AM, Mirbaha H, Li A, Barker SJ, Foley AC, Thorpe JR, Serpell LC, Miller TM, Grinberg LT, Seeley WW, and Diamond ML in Neuron. doi:10.1016/j.neuron.2014.04.047

Image: Given an opportunity to spread in cells, prion-like proteins taken from the brains of patients with (from top) Alzheimer’s disease, corticobasal degeneration and Pick’s disease form distinctly shaped clumps (green in this image) in different parts of the cells. Credit David W. Sanders.
