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

Published: Feb 13, 2012

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.
