How renegade protein interrupts brain cell function in Alzheimer’s disease revealed | Health News

Washington DC: A new study has shown that dozens of molecules may tangle up with rogue bundles of tau, a protein that normally gives nerve fibres structure to cause brain cell damage that contributes to neurodegenerative diseases. Neuroscientists have previously found that tau can become toxic when extra chemical molecules…
