Over-Expression of a Protein Responsible for Neuronal Damage in Down's Syndrome Sufferers, University of Barcelona Study

The study coordinated by the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG) reproduced the same morphological and functional patterns of neuronal connections in a transgenic mouse as seen in people with Down's syndrome. Regulating the activity of this protein produced very similar neuronal growth to that in a healthy mouse.
