Scientists prevent neurodegeneration-associated protein clumping in lab study

Scientists prevent neurodegeneration-associated protein clumping in lab study

By artificially exposing FUS proteins to the natural process of phosphorylation, researchers were able to prevent them from forming the harmful clumps associated with ALS and frontotemporal dementia. PROVIDENCE, R.I. [Brown University] — Scientists report in a new study that by imitating a natural process of cells, they prevented the formation of protein clumps associated with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and frontotemporal dementia.
