Tag: Loss of proteostasis

June 24, 2020
In a recent study, researchers from the Buck Institute have shown that cellular senescence, one of the hallmarks of aging, is partially responsible for Alzheimer's disease. Cellular senescence As you age, increasing numbers of your cells enter into a state known as senescence. Senescent cells do not divide or support the tissues of which they...

In a recent study, a team of researchers has discovered that a naturally occurring protein called Lipocalin-type prostaglandin D synthase (L-PGDS) prevents, and can destroy, the protein aggregates associated with Alzheimer's disease. Surprisingly common and with critical functions L-PGDS is a common protein, second only to albumin, in the human brain. It provides several critical...

Researchers from the Beijing Institute of Brain Disorders have discovered a new method of using exosomes to deliver aptamers that prevent the accumulation of α-synuclein aggregates, which are the cause of Parkinson's disease [1]. α-Synuclein Aggregates Like Alzheimer's, Parkinson's disease is characterized by protein aggregation caused by a loss of proteostasis, one of the hallmarks...
