Neurodegenerative diseases is determined by mitochondria
Exciting research in recent years, enables us to speak of a new sector in bioiatrikesSciences, called Epigenetics. In the case of the nervous system, studying the ways thatregulate the expression of genes that affect the onset of neurological diseases. Thekey points of DNA that determine when and how they will express a gene like theremote control that adjusts the tv screen.
New data concerning the expression of genes that regulate the genesis and thedeconstruction (aytofagia) of mitochondria and determine to a large extent thehealth, longevity, aging and neurodegenerative diseases, published in April 2015, online, in the very reliable biomedicine inspection nature, from the team of Mr. Tavernarakis, in FORTH. This new publication gives new impetus to the treatment ofneurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer disease, Parkinson disease, motor neuron disease, etc.
