Cofilin may be early culprit in tauopathy process leading to brain cell death

TAMPA, Fla. – The two primary hallmarks of Alzheimer’s disease are clumps of sticky amyloid-beta (A) protein fragments known as amyloid plaques and neurofibrillary tangles of a protein called tau. Abnormal accumulations of both proteins are needed to drive the death of brain cells, or neurons.

Differing interpretations of the term "designated driver" can drain the safety from even the best of intentions, according to an award-winning paper recently published by Northern Illinois University.

Genetic reduction of cofilin mitigates tauopathy and synaptic defects in Tau-P301S mice and movement deficits in tau transgenic C. elegans. The pathogenic effects of cofilin are selectively mediated.

Given their essential non-cell autonomous supportive CNS role, altered microglia functions may also impact MN physiology and viability. Thus, we propose that homeostatic non-cell autonomous.

That designation may come as a surprise to anyone who has even a passing interest in the science of end-of-life brain diseases. eventually leading to death of the neuron. Meanwhile, lacking tau to.

That both receptor and cell assume different roles at different ages and different disease stages has complicated matters. For example, TREM2 signaling activates microglia, tempers tau aggregation in.
