UB researchers corroborate the neuroprotective effects of Sirtuin 1 activation on mice with Alzheimer’s disease

A study coordinated by the University of Barcelona (UB) has described a mechanism that plays a key role in the evolution of Alzheimer’s disease. According to the paper published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease, the activation of the protein Sirtuin 1 in a murine model with familial Alzheimer’s disease has neuroprotective effects. The study, based on the PhD thesis developed by the researcher David Porquet (UB), first describes Sirtuin 1 pathway in this murine model. Mercè Pallàs, from the Department of Pharmacology and Therapeutic Chemistry at the Faculty of Pharmacy of UB, coordinates the study. ... Full story
