Pathological phosphorylation (yellow) of Tau proteins (red-orange) leads to disintegration of microtubuli in the neuron axon an aggregation of the tau proteins. The transport of synaptic vesicles (orange-violet spheres) is interrupted
Today, over 55 million people worldwide are living with Alzheimer’s disease (AD). While AD is the most common form of dementia, there is currently no cure for the disease. But a recent discovery about the role tau may play in AD represents an exciting breakthrough in our understanding of the progression of AD and other ...
